The hunting season becomes the foxhunters’ year of the horse as we organize a series of horse competitions across North America. The MFHA Field Hunter Championship is more than just a celebration of our equine partners. It’s a chance to win regional and national field hunter titles, and perhaps raise funds for your hunt. Each of us has a horse, and each of us thinks that our horse is the best. So, we invite you and your special horse to participate in this Championship!
We have devised this horse competition to be similar to the Centennial Field Hunter Championship. Hunts will host qualifiers in each of the MFHA’S 15 Districts, with the top horses qualified to attend the Finals in May during the Virginia Hound Show weekend.
These qualifiers are also fundraisers for the hunts who are gracious enough to host them. We will work with the Chairmen of the Qualifiers every step of the way, providing everything from entry forms to judging guidelines to press release forms.
Two divisions will be offered: jumping (Hunters) and non-jumping (Hilltoppers). The qualifiers and finals will be open to juniors who will compete with adults. In addition to the opportunity to place with adults, a Best Junior Award will be given at the Qualifiers and at the Finals.
Postmark Date: TBD
