    Don't blame Canada for having any influence on fox-hunting in the US - too few, too far apart, and too much bad weather. We do sometimes enjoy a shared stirrup-cup, or two, with our friends from below the border though. (my belief is that you can't fly on one wing!). Back east it is more traditional, but here in the west, heck, cowboys are welcome.

    Hey, Foxtrot's, how far west are you? About half our personal good buddy Irish horse folk are just north of the Border, and our stud is dual registered - matter of fact, inspected and approved in Canada! It is NICE to have two wings

    Amen!

    Especially considering how American fox hunting evolved for the territory and, ahem, OUR traditions still permit us to hunt.

    I will have to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are just misinformed.

    It would be interesting if you could relate how your hunting has evolved.

    I got Daphne Moore's Famous Foxhunters off the shelf and it shows the 10th Duke of Beaufort, who ought to know, at his 70th Birthday Meet (1970) on a horse with either 6 or 7 plaits, plus forelock.

    Also shown with definitely less than 9: Capt. Ronnie Wallace (1952), Lt.-Col. SIr Peter Farquhar, Mr. W.W. Brainard, Jr. (Old Dominion).

    Shown with no plaits at all (so use these as your precedent when the fashion police criticize you):

    Sir Edward Curre (1921), Major W.W.B. Scott (1921, Old Berks), and a different photo of Capt. R.E. Wallace from 1964.

    Your aching fingers will thank me.
