Bridlespur Hunt

Last weekend I was able to join a group of fox hunters in Pike County, Missouri. The hunters are dressed in full regalia and ride well groomed horses. The riders with their hounds are really something to see. Here we have a rider with 12 couples or 24 hounds. Twenty riders and the hounds will go through woods, fields and stream looking trying to pick up the scent of a fox.

Lots of excitement this day for the hounds horses and riders. Also, the fox were off doing something else, none to be found.
