The Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) is proud to announce that 2013 is The Year of the Foxhunting Thoroughbred. MFHA is offering $750 in cash and prizes to a hunt member and a hunt club which use registered Thoroughbreds and which are excelling in second careers as either a field or a staff horse.

“There are a great number of excellent Thoroughbreds in hunts across America,” says Ed Kelly, president of the board of MFHA. “We’re pleased to honor these exceptional athletes, many of whom have found productive second careers through MFHA registered hunts.”
