Two of the many equestrian participants in last month's Inaugural Parade are active foxhunters. Bennett Opitz, a fourth-generation foxhunter whose parents are Masters at Thornton Hill-Fort Valley (VA), rode with the First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry. Diane Brady, of Waterloo Hunt Club (MI), traveled all the way to Washington, DC, with her hunt horse as an invitee of the Michigan Multi-jurisdictional Mounted Police Drill Team and Color Guard. Both riders enjoyed the honor and excitement of taking part in this historic tradition.
