At midday at the Virginia Foxhound Show, all eyes turned to the armada of junior handlers making their way from the kennels to the rings to compete! From first-timers to experienced young whippers-in, the future leaders of our sport demonstrated their showmanship skill - with plenty of affection for their patient charges, as well. These images capture the teamwork and bonding that make the children's classes so much fun to watch.
