A Message from MFHA President Tony Leahy, MFH

Wentworth Hunt Hosts Successful Conservation Hunter Pace

Wentworth Hunt Club (NH) has hosted the Conservation Hunter Pace along the Pawtuckaway River at the beautiful Fine Nest Farm for over a decade. This farm has a conservation easement held by Bear-Paw Regional Greenways. Hundreds of acres of woods and green space is in conservation at and adjacent to Fine Nest Farm, protecting this important waterway.

MFHA Continues Partnership to Research Canine Health

The MFHA Foundation continues to partner with public health researchers to investigate and innovate in the area of canine health. Extending our cooperation with Dr. Christine Petersen, we are supporting specialized research into the impact of various tick-borne diseases on susceptibility to other illnesses. As Dr. Petersen reported to the Board in May, not only will these studies potentially improve hound management, they may provide insight into disease processes in humans, as well.

North Meets South at Canadian Hound Show

Hosted by London Hunt (ON), the Canadian Hound Show on June 8 featured strong competition, beautiful weather, and a unique feature - hounds competing from both the furthest south MFHA pack and the furthest north. Andrew Marren has taken up the horn at Palm Beach Hounds (FL), whose midwinter season will complement the late summer/ early fall schedule of Montreal Hounds (QC), where he will continue his several years' service as huntsman.

Kimberton Hound Show Celebrates the Penn-Marydel

Kimberton Hunt Club (PA) hosted the annual Penn-Marydel Hound Show on September 9, 2018 at its kennels in Chester Springs, PA. Ashley Hubbard, huntsman at Green Spring Valley Hounds (MD), served as judge for the upbeat day despite chilly and wet conditions.
