Safe Rider Program and the beagles at Persia

Before I begin, I would like to thank Jenny Nguyen for her pictures from Sunday. I use peoples’ pictures for my ‘wrap’ of the weekend, and I do ask them for permission, but I can be remiss in giving them credit. The story for the hunt always comes alive when there are pictures to help the reader get a feel for the event.

The Safe Rider Program met at our Persia Country, where the owners Jesi and Dillon Clark were so welcoming! They gathered up all of their cows so that the fields to the south and east of their house were free for us to ride all over hill and dale, searching for bunnies =).

The beagles are coming along so well! They used to run here and there and basically everywhere. Now they come when Huntsman Dave blows his horn, pack up and cast off.  It’s great fun to watch them work and it’s a wonderful opportunity to take out young horses, horses new to hunting, and riders new to hunting, to ride in the country at a slower pace.
We rode for about 1.5 hours, and then gathered at the Man Cave for some lunch and relaxation. It was such a beautiful day!
This coming Sunday is the ALWAYS popular Morning at Skyline! RSVP to MFH Luke Matranga

You can now find a Fixture Card schedule here whenever needed, with links to the NHH website Calendar and maps:

Due to weather and scheduling, we will not reschedule our Hunter Derby this year- look forward to next year though!
April Goettle is my techno genius bestie and she has set up a new email system so everyone will get fancy new email posts with lots of photos!

Have a great week, the weather is going to be beautiful. I hope you get a chance to go out and ride =)
