Here is the latest news about the 2019 Junior North American Field Hunter Championship. We will have the Championship in the Middleburg, Virginia area on Saturday, November 9, 2019. It will be a great Championship weekend with a special event planned on Friday night: David Twiggs, MFHA Executive Director, has invited us to the new MFHA headquarters right in Middleburg. This is wonderful opportunity for the juniors and their families to hear about the MFHA and see the new headquarters.


It’s a beautiful, historic building. We will also have our Saturday night party with dinner and a horn blowing and whip cracking contest. The Championship will be held at the gorgeous Old Whitewood Farm on Saturday. On Sunday, there are several hunts in the area that will be hunting, so you could all have a great weekend in beautiful Middleburg! I’m working on setting up the Hunt Qualifiers now and will keep you all posted - thanks to Hillsboro Hounds (TN) and Mooreland Hunt (AL), which have already hosted Qualifiers.

I’m working on prizes for our juniors. We have four divisions. The four Champions each receive a beautiful Horse Country Cooler and the Reserve Champions will receive a really nice leather halter. Champions and Reserve Champions all receive an engraved Jefferson Cup from Kettermans Jewelers. Would you like to sponsor a prize for the juniors? We will give you an ad in our program to thank you. It would be great if some of our hunts would help us out - or maybe a business, or a group of friends get together and sponsor a prize. A huge thank you already to Eleanor Menefee Parkes and Kim Ginn for their support! We are planning a great 2019 Championship! See all the details at our website, www.jnafhc.com.

Thank you!
