Unfortunately, we lost our fixture that has terrain (due to the divorce of the owners). Now, we are pretty much restricted to this 3000 acre heavily-wood, and relatively flat fixture, near Dobbin, Texas. The owner of this fixture doesn't even hunt or show up for the hunts, so we are really luck to have access to it.
Cool beans! Looks like it was nice warm weather too! Looks like a lot of meets early in the season around here. Except the jumps aren't optional!
Looks like a friendly group and some nice, nice horses too.
Best wishes for a great season.
Those pictures were taken in a field in the woods where it is convenient for the people following the hunt to drive over and take photos. Our other jumps are more "natural". But, we have no actual coops built into fences. This isn't a working ranch, so there are no interior fences.
I don't know if the soil is sandy or not. I think it's a thin layer of loam over light clay.
It looks great to me. We had several days of rain during last week and then rain all night before and the day of the opening meet I attended. The edges of fields were quite sloppy and slippery. Looks like everyone had a good time.
Good to see some familiar horsey faces! Wish I could come down sometime- I have a pony that would just lovvve to hunt and I think she's ready. But it looks like y'all aren't heading up to Flynn this year? If I can find a buddy to come along and ride my mare, I may still make the haul soemtime.
