Advertisers

Your letters and comments are important to us. We relish your kind words, but we cherish your reactions, your thoughtful comments, your ideas and suggestions. If Covertside makes a worthwhile contribution to your foxhunting experience, please help us do better for foxhunting by sharing your wisdom with our readers.

Submissions should be directed to “editor-at-covertside.net.” You can email us for writers guidelines. Some sections seek regular contributions from the hunts or foxhunters individually:

Covertside at Breakfast

After the hunt horn sounds its final melodious call and riders must sadly turn homeward, there is the hunt breakfast to look forward to — where fox hunters gather to tell tales and relive the day’s ride — sure sustenance for body and soul. Breaking bread together helps bring the group closer, and breakfasts are an important way for hunters to pass on their love of hunting and the lore of the sport to the next generation. In this way, many hunts become like family over the years.

Each month, Covertside will highlight this rich custom in Covertside at Breakfast. This column will feature a hunt profile, traditions, photos and – most importantly – the recipes that bring readers the cheer born of these legendary occasions.

Covertside at Breakfast will visit various hunts around North America to capture the “flavor of the hunt” through a look at favorite dishes, drinks and traditions. Authors are Martha A. Woodham and Julie Bryant Fisher, riders and fox hunters who enjoy eating and cooking, and are affiliated with Midland Fox Hounds and Bear Creek Hounds. Both are writers and editors for newspapers and magazines in Atlanta, Ga.

Share the traditions and recipes of breakfasts at your hunt. Contact Martha,  martha.woodham@att.net or 404.992.6112, or Julie,  jbryant@bizjournals.com or 678.522.8470.

I would like to contribute to the photo contest that you have each year. I don't see where to submit. Could you let me know?
Thank you!
