From sunny Florida to snowy Colorado, foxhunting enthusiasts celebrated special days on the sporting calendar over the last month. Warmer climates hosted opening meets, riders dressed up for Boxing Day meets, and in colder areas, devoted staff made sure hounds went out for exercise, no matter the weather. Enjoy this gallery of the many different ways foxhunters come together as a community.
