Members from eight registered Hunts from all across Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia competed Monday night.

As no Hunt Night is complete without foxhounds, the members and hounds of the Kimberton Hunt of Chester Springs, Pa., entertained the crowd with a demonstration of how foxhounds work together as a pack.

 

THE HUNT TEAMS competition had 13 teams in a class where three riders from the hunt follow each other over a course of obstacles and then jump in unison over the last fence.

Winning to claim the Potomac Hunt Challenge Trophy was Elkridge Harford Hunt Team 1, made up of Ashton Williams' Champagne Chic and Peace Party, along with Lambert Boyce's Respectful Ed.

Kimberton Hunt placed second with Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Foxhounds of Unionville, Pa., taking third.

Taking the blue ribbon and the Max C. Hempt Perpetual Trophy in the Field Hunters, Riders 35 & Under class, was Samantha Schiff aboard Try It Again of the Bull Run Hunt.

Coming in first for the Field Hunters, Riders 36 & Over class, and winning the Chairmans Perpetual Trophy, was Billy Frederik and Chasin Charlie, also of Bull Run.
