"There’s nothing more thrilling than watching an experienced field of first-flight foxhunters gallop across the countryside behind the hounds, easily popping over coops and post-and-rail fences, all while respecting their fellow riders. Except, of course, being a part of the action yourself."

If you ask Ellie Craig, 7, what her favorite memory from the hunt field is, she’ll tell you: “My first hunt with my mom. We went on Christmas Eve and I didn’t want to stop!” Her mother, Michelle, remembers that day well. “It was brutally cold,” she recalls. “So, after ninety minutes, we were close to the trailers and I said we had to go in. We were both freezing but she cried. She didn’t want to go in.” For Ellie’s brother Carter, 9, it’s always been about the hounds. “My favorite part is watching and listening to the hounds,” he says. “I like to hear their voices.” For him, there’s nothing like the moment when the trailer gate drops and the hounds run out, straight to him, and shower him with kisses.
