Two new foxhunters joined our ranks on Opening Day 2013 with the New Market - Middletown Valley Hounds. Henry Nylen, 10, and Brian Childs, four decades his senior, formally opened their hunting careers with this meet. Seeing the day through their eyes brings a fresh perspective to hunting veterans.
Brian has had a lifelong fascination with hunting, culture, and rode a bit as a child. As a Washington insider, he grew to know many foxhunting enthusiasts, but never took the time to ride or to engage in the sport. After following hounds during opening meet a year ago in the back of a pickup truck, he decided to pursue this dream.
