"I get out of bed with excitement and joy!" So Madison Staiano, age 10, describes her feelings each hunt morning. She began riding for the show ring, and her first hunt was at South Creek Foxhounds' (FL) Opening Meet on her versatile small pony hunter, Mighty Mouse. Although it was a quiet day, she was instantly hooked. Madison's mentor, Marylu Gallagher, member and past professional whipper-in, has taught her the traditional rules of foxhunting, and Madison has fallen in love with the sport and hopes to always be involved with riding to hounds.
