Bedford County Junior Brynn Katany Places at USPC Championships

My name is Brynn Katany, I'm 15 years old and I am a member of Bedford County Hunt (VA) Pony Club. This summer, I traveled to Kentucky to compete in the United States Pony Clubs (USPC) National Championships to represent the Old Dominion region in the discipline of showjumping.

Pony Club Members Visit Shakerag Hounds

On July 8, Shakerag Hounds (GA) welcomed the local Pony Club members to visit our kennel and learn about foxhunting. The DC of the Hilltoppers Pony Club, Christie Hanson, and I had this event scheduled for awhile. On the day, ten or so kids, with their parents in tow, showed up at the kennel for an early morning hound exercise at 7am. Some of the families had to drive over an hour and a half to get there!

Brady Cully, 14, Reports on Showing at Bryn Mawr

Recently I worked in the Crossbred ring at the Bryn Mawr Hound Show alongside my father, who is the huntsman and Master of Rose Tree-Blue Mountain Hunt (PA) and another knowledgeable houndsman, John Broadhurst. We showed in many classes, including the pack class. In the ring, I held hounds for my father and in the pack class, I whipped in to him.

A Junior's Report from the New Jersey Inter-Hunt Puppy Show

On May 10th, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the New Jersey Inter-Hunt Puppy Show, hosted by Windy Hollow Hunt (NY). About a week before, a couple of my friends and I were invited to go to the kennels and attempt to learn how to show hounds in just a few days. After three or four days of watching and learning how to walk, stack, and bathe foxhounds, the day of the show approached quickly. Huntsman Chris Burrowswood was kind enough to lend us white coats and deal with us really not knowing what was going on!
