THE FAIRLY HUNTED AWARD
The MFHA offers a youth achievement award for participating in foxhunting. The Fairly Hunted Award acknowledges children 18 and under who participate in foxhunting. Each year, the award is presented to any young person who hunts five times during that season and is recognized by a Master. No examination is given and no requisite skills are required – just having had the experience of riding to hounds. The MFHA board of directors presents participants with a pin, certificate, a one-year subscription to Covertside, the official publication of the MFHA, and their names are included in an honor roll at the MFHA annual meeting.
Please send your nominations to the MFHA office email firstname.lastname@example.org.
