the Washington DC press recently. The
of the glossy Washington Life featured
five of our fancy hats on the well
turned out models. The photos were taken
at Great Meadow, near Warrenton, with
handsome polo players and classic cars
in the background. Our hats were
spectacular. Photographer and foxhunter,
Samantha Swann, did a fine job
designing, organizing and photographing

Congratulations to the three winners of the

colorful fairy lights that called your

Here at Horse Country® we’re especially
excited about the Centennial DVD and
Commemorative Book that are in the
works, scheduled for distribution later
this year. The DVD will feature
information on every one of the 165
registered hunt clubs in the US and
Canada. There will be photos, text, and,
for some clubs, even a video clip – all
of it accessible on your computer screen
with the click of a mouse. The book will
focus on the overall sport of mounted
hunting in North America. A team of
highly respected writers has been
assembled to address the many topics
related to this distinctive sport.
The Centennial DVD and Commemorative
Book will be available later this year,
around early to mid-fall. If you can’t
wait another hundred years for the next
Centennial Ball, the DVD and book will
you with pleasant diversions
to be entertaining, informative,
and amusing. To order the book, go to
A foxhunting group has been defined as a
drinking club with a riding problem. We
don’t mean to make light of alcohol
consumption, and we certainly don’t
encourage irresponsible drinking. But an
occasional spot of refreshment in the
hunt field is a long-held tradition of
the sport, an integral part of the
camaraderie that gives foxhunting its
entertaining aspect of that tradition is
deciding what to carry in one’s flask,
playing with new concoctions versus
sticking with the tried and true,
challenging your fellow hunters to guess
the ingredients, trying to outdo each
other for taste and creativity. We’ve
tasted some interesting blends over the
years; some delightful, some curious,
some…well, is lighter fluid really an
acceptable replacement if you’ve run out
of vodka? This variety got us thinking
it would be fun to put out a call for
“Reynardian Recipes,” a collection of
what folks carry in their flasks. And,
in some instances, not only what but
why. Is yours filled with an old family
blend? Does the mixture vary
on time of year and hunting conditions?
(We know one chap who varies the
percentage of scotch in his mixture to
reflect the temperature: as the temps
decline, the scotch rises.) Have you
discovered a special formula that
travels well and goes down smooth? Or do
you prefer to see your comrade’s eyes
bug out after partaking of your
high-octane fuel? (Sorry, we’ll have to
exclude anything not officially
sanctioned by the alcoholic beverage
laws. This means no ’shine.) If you’d
like to be included in what’s sure to be
an entertaining, informative, and useful
collection of recipes, click here and
