- Willow Hoins
Willow Hoins, 15, a student at North Salem High School outside New York City, caught our attention handling numerous Golden's Bridge (NY) hounds to top placings at last spring's shows. She shares some of her experiences in kennels, in the field, and in the ring with Covertside Online. - Ed. Foxhunting has been a part of my life since forever. We live just a mile or so from the kennels so we would always hear hounds. I remember stopping at fixtures on the way to nursery school and watching the hounds go off on Tuesdays. On most Saturday mornings my sister Rowan and I were in the road whip jeep with Richard Knowlton, who ultimately taught us how to whip-crack.
