The Ian Milne Trophy is an award for professional huntsmen. At the Biennial Staff Seminar, the MFHA Foundation presents this honor to a huntsman, representing any MFHA member hunt, who has "distinguished himself or herself and has been recognized by their peers as an exceptional contributor to the sport of foxhunting." More than twenty well-respected professionals were queried to make recommendations that could not include themselves. The final selection was made after considering their proposals by a panel of Masters who also hunt their own hounds. The recipient will receive a trophy and a check for $1,000. Past recipients include Tommy Lee Jones of Casanova Hunt (VA) and Larry Pitts, Potomac Hunt (MD). The 2016 Biennial Staff Seminar, in Chantilly, Virginia, takes place April 22-24.
