The 2015 Sedgefield Performance Trial in Hoffman, NC proved to be lucky number seven for Stonewall Hounds. This was Stonewall’s seventh year participating in the performance trials and Stonewall Classy, #7, was top hound after two days of competition.
Eleven hunts participated, including Rockbridge, Goshen, Sedgefield, Whiskey Road, Mecklenberg, Delabrooke, Red Oak, Green Creek, Low Country, Last Chance and Full Cry. The weather was much colder than previous trials. During Sunday morning's drive to the hunt the low temperature was 22; however, it was much easier on the hounds and horses.
