    Default FYI... passings in the hunt world

    Ms. Gillian DuPont has passed. Services will be held on Thursday.

    Also, if any of you hunted with the Pohick Valley Hunt (Virginia), the former huntsman recently passed away. I can't find the newspaper clipping or I'd post the information - if any of you want more info pm me and I'll try and get it from the local paper.

    Awww, I never knew or met Ms. DuPont but I have a wonderful lightweight hunt coat I bought from The Old Habit over the phone along with a few other odds and ends.

    Another sad passing - that of Robert H. Bull-Brett of Geneseo on October 20, 2011.

    A perfectly wonderful man who hunted with the Genesee Valley Hunt.

    Please see if you can find the info. We hunted with them for years.

    Thanks in advance.

    Master Gayle Horn of Red Rock Hounds also recently passed.

    I haven't yet seen an obituary, but will post when I do.
    PVBZoE might have more info.

    Unhappy Johah Short will be missed!!

    Jonah Short hunted with the Old Dominion Hounds in his later years. He was a fun guy with a great sense of humour.

    Gillian DuPont always looked so elegant and polished and well turned out on a horse and off. A truly elegant horsewoman of much grace & dignity.
    I am not worthy!
