The introductory quote from Foxhunters Speak by Mary Kalergis describes Rita Mae Brown’s dedication to the sport that we love.

Among all of her contributions to the sport of foxhunting, one of her most recent was a presentation of a program entitled, “Foxhunting Attire Through the Ages” for the Maryland based Fair Hill Hounds, Inc.

Rita Mae Brown’s kind contribution to the Fair Hill Hounds exemplifies how as foxhunters we need to support each other in our hunting endeavors.

The thrill of a pack of hounds opening up, the encouragement of the huntsman, the excitement of riding a made hunting horse and the connection to all things “nature” were evident when we were privileged to host Rita Mae Brown.

Thanks from the members, supporters and friends of the Fair Hill Hounds.

Best wishes to all for safe and continued hunting, Jon R. Smith, FHH
