Memphis Hunt Club Holds Intro Seminar For many people, foxhunting is only a mysterious activity they see depicted in pictures on the walls of their favorite restaurants or in luxurious office waiting areas. In fact, it is no longer an activity limited to wealthy landowners or the elite of society. Most foxhunters are middle class horse lovers who enjoy, and appreciate, the opportunity to ride on trails and open territory. Most are avid nature lovers, excited by the chance sighting of a red-tailed hawk, a blue heron, herds of deer, and especially a fox or coyote. There is no killing of foxes or coyotes in our local hunting. In many cases, the same coyotes appear so frequently when the hounds and riders show up that the riders give them names. Fourth Bluff Hounds is presenting a series of free seminars and clinics for individuals who would like to learn more about foxhunting or "Riding to Hounds." There will be four seminars and clinics and two riding activities. The "Hunt Camp," as it is called, is designed to take you from a basic introduction and overview of foxhunting to helping you get your horse ready for your first hunt. The activities are all scheduled for weekends in September. The first seminar, "An Introduction to Foxhunting" is scheduled for the first weekend in September. The second seminar is on "Etiquette in the Hunt Field," the third seminar is "Calls on the Hunting Horn," and the fourth seminar is a "Hound Show and Conformation Clinic." The riding activities include "A Walk Through The Hunt Territory" and "The Fantasy Hunt." More information will be in future issues of the REVIEW, at Memphis area tack shops, or you may contact Lois Smith at 901-464-4950
