Sept 17, 2016 Hunt Practice

If you have ever wanted to have a gentle introduction to foxhunting, here is your opportunity! Ro Crosbie has graciously invited riders to her Sky of Fire Farm near Redfield on Saturday September 17th for a hunt practice. Riders should plan to be in the tack at 10 a.m. We’ll have a brief, mounted commemoration celebrating the life of Dr. Ted Crosbie in the beautiful setting of his farm. Following that, we will hack out over the many trails on the property at a suitable pace for young horses and those starting to leg up for foxhunting, carrying Ted’s joyful spirit with us as we prepare for another fun season of fox hunting. There are natural jumps on the property as well. There will be several experienced hunt members on site to help with any aspect of hunting or horsemanship.  
Ro will be hosting what promises to be a delightful brunch after the ride. We are requesting a donation of $20, which includes the Hunt Practice and brunch, from non-NHH members. To RSVP and receive directions to the farm, please send an email to Camie Stockhausen.
