Wiggins Hounds (SC) held its three-day hunt clinic on March 8-10 on the grounds of Wiggins Hounds’ kennels and the estate of its Master. To advance the the MFHA message and to promote the sport of mounted hunting with hounds, Wiggins Hounds, under the leadership of Edmund S. Twining, III, MFH, and huntsman Tommy Gesell conceived of the Hunt Clinic to improve horsemanship and instruct field etiquette within the context of a strong conservation ethic and respect for landowner and management of territory issues.
