Ryan Johnsey was introduced to fox hunting very early in life, born into a horsey family in Northern Virginia. After whipping in at the Loudoun Hunt for seven years, Johnsey, 26, left a career in corporate America to become Huntsman. Loudoun Hunt is based in Leesburg, Va., where Johnsey is in charge of the 16 ½ couple American and Crossbred hounds.
e-Covertside: How did you become involved in hunting?
Ryan: I grew up around foxhunting, it’s something my family has been doing since the 70′s. It became a major theme in my life after coming home from college…. it snow balled from there!
