PERFORMANCE TRIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Performance trials offer a way for foxhunters to gather, measure hound performance, enhance breeding programs and exchange ideas. Every three years, the MFHA sponsors the Performance Trial Championships. During the 2021-2022 season, multiple exciting qualifying events culminate with the Performance Trials Grand Championship on March 26-27, 2022, in Hoffman, North Carolina.

PERFORMANCE TRIAL INFORMATION

The MFHA adopted these rules to sanction open and invitational regional performance trials and a national championship. A select number of the best hounds from each sanctioned trial will then be eligible to compete in a national performance trial championship. In addition, any hound competing in a sanctioned performance trial and placed in the top-10 will be eligible to compete in a special performance trial division at MFHA-sanctioned hound shows. The MFHA publishes these rules to encourage the development of performance trials as an important and enjoyable means of measuring hound performance and enhancing hunts’ foxhound breeding programs.
