Description

Internationally renowned Master and huntsman Hugh J. Robards engagingly informs foxhunters, new or experienced, how to more fully absorb the drama of the hunt. What is the huntsman doing? Why does he do that? What about the whippers-in? The Field Master? The hounds? The fox? What problems do each encounter in the field during the course of a typical hunt? What decisions must they make? It may be a revelation to some, especially those who hunt to ride, but even while standing still, things are happening if you know what to look for and how to interpret what you see. By learning what to watch and listen for, field members can increase their awareness and thus their enjoyment of every hunting day. As an added feature, an introduction by Norman Fine (editor of Covertside and The Derrydale Press FoxhuntersO Library) provides the novice foxhunter with all he or she needs to know in the way of attire and etiquette to assure a gracious reception at any meeting of foxhounds and, better still, an invitation to return. RobardsO earlier memoir, Foxhunting in England, Ireland and North America, was one of DerrydaleOs best-selling books.show more
