Old Dominion Hounds' siblings Connor and Casey Poe proved to be unbeatable at the 2014 Junior North American Field Hunter Championships, held November 9 and hosted by Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Foxhounds in Unionville, PA. The panel of judges deemed Connor and Liberty Bell the winner of the First Field 13 and over division, while his sister, Casey, took top call in the First Field 12 and under group riding Mickey Mouse. Lilia Sharp of Blue Ridge Hunt won the Hilltopper championship aboard Conway Cymbel.
2014 marks the 12th year of the event, modeled after the North American Field Hunter Championships. The JNAFHC was established in order to emphasize the connection between foxhunting and land preservation and create awareness of this relationship among junior foxhunters.
