Whipper-in Alaura Barras and her speedy Thoroughbred, Val

“I have been hunting with Shawnee Hounds off and on for 16 years. When my Thoroughbred mare Val isn’t hunting she is giving rides around the pasture to my three year old son Aiden, eating massive amounts of feed, relaxing and being completely babied. She loves to run fast and jump high almost as much as she loves to eat. What I love most about hunting is being a part a such an amazing team of horse loving thrill seeking hard working people. I’ve found this group of people and couldn’t imagine my life without them and our classic sport. I love seeing them every week, all of us ready to ride to those hounds. When I’m not hunting I’m doing mommy, wife, home maker things, working at the bank, and thinking about Fox Hunting.”
