So what is fox hunting anyways?
Foxhunting is by far one of the most exhilarating equestrian sports. Mounted riders follow a pack of highly trained hounds tracking a scent, either real or artificial, through varied terrain and wilderness. It is quite literally about the thrill of the chase.
The term “foxhunting” is a bit of a misnomer. For Shawnee Hounds, the scent is usually coyote, with the rare fox scented/seen once in a blue moon. Even then, the term hunting is not truly correct as it is really more coyote “searching/chasing.” Seriously, it really is all about the chase!
