We got some requests for a spring CotH hunt and have narrowed it down to -- very likely -- the March 14-17 weekend.
Hacking and parties and lessons and kennel visits and all sorts of fun stuff on Thursday and Friday, hunting with the Old Dominion Hounds on Saturday morning, then the Warrenton Hunt Point to Point Saturday afternoon. Probably *another* dinner party Saturday night, then hack Sunday morning and foot-hunting with the Ashland Bassets Sunday afternoon.
Newbies -- especially -- are warmly encouraged to join the fun. WateryGlen will take a car-topping group for those interested in trying it on for size without the added distraction of a horse. She is a foxhunting expert, knows the territory, the sport and the players, and gives superb instruction and commentary while ferrying you around the countryside.
Email to get on the list.
Well, I guess I'll be eating my hat, Satin Filly. Sorry - didn't realize there was any overlap! Sorry!! *Next* time we'll check schedules better, though 3/14 weekend was suggested by several others (who don't have conflicts.)
I plan to ride that day but....it's also a joint meet with the Blue Ridge Hunt coming so will possibly be a BIG crowd. Just so ya know!!
We can likely find someone for anyone who wants to car follow if I don't.
Agggghhh! Foiled by joint-meet issues again!
I'll ask my masters if its ok to bring a few extra guests.
The meet is *not* at my house (Leeds Manor Farm in Hume) so I will be self-limited by who can fit in my trailer.
The dates are set - 3/14-3/17, and the schedule will be:
Arrive Thurs after lunch; ride that afternoon. Maybe a potluck supper here.
Friday lesson, kennel visit and shopping etc. Dinner party here, probably.
Sat. hunt then races. Sat. night dinner out (or vice versa with Friday.)
Sun. hack then basset hunting early afternoon.
I'm pretty sure I saw the Coth Hunters dancing the Harlem Shake in a tailgate flash mob that occurred this afternoon at the Warrenton Hunt Point to Point Races. Uhhhhhh!! I'm speechless.......totally speechless!!! And they all had hats on.....ummmmmm....one was a chicken feathered fascinator hat......ummmmm....speechless I am......shocking behavior ladies! Simply shocking! See us (I mean them) on You Tube.....really.
By the end of the races; they could hardly stand up due to extreme fatigue after a super morning hunting. We'd gotten at least 2 braces up and it was a race all morning too.
And THANK GOD the weather held for them/us!! The rain was always 5 miles away but it never rains on the hunting princesses!! yeeee hawwww!!!
