There is nothing more aristocratic than fox hunting in my opinion. I love every aspect of the scenery a fox hunt evokes, and I challenge readers to find a film featuring aristocrats in the country that doesn't have a scene with some sort of hunt. Why our friends and chaps in Great Britain banned this archive of history, I do not know. However, I can only presume that the hunt continues on the most elite estates.
This past year I was invited to attend the blessing of the hounds ceremony in Pinehurst, NC. I was unable to attend since this blessing occurred on Thanksgiving Day, but I do hate that I missed the event. In addition, Pinehurst is a wonderful town, but that is a story for another day.
