Foxhunting enjoys a great tradition in Virginia and particularly in Clarke County. Blue Ridge Hunt started off the cubbing season from the kennels in Boyce on Saturday, Aug. 31.

The joint masters for Blue Ridge Hunt are MFH Anne W. McIntosh and MFH Jeffrey L. LeHew. The very warm temperatures on the first day forced each hunt to move off at sunrise. Streams and ponds were a welcome sight for the hounds to cool off.

The hunt welcomes anyone who wants to enjoy the sport of fox chasin’ and offers first and second flights, and hilltopping. ML
