Bridlespur Hunt

bridlespurBridlespur huntsman Eleanor Hartwell and houndsIn our Hunt Club Pages under the Horse and Hound drop-down menu, we publish a page (or more!) for every North American hunt. On those pages appears every published article about or refering to that hunt.

We recently asked you for descriptions or histories to use as a lead for your hunt's page. The response has been terrific, and we're continually fascinated by the diversity of each hunt's origins and individual culture. Here's Bridlespur's story:

Season Is in Maxim-um Overdrive at Tennesee Valley

The first cubhunt open to subscribers and guests took place on Saturday, September 17, from Frank and Cyndie Niceley's Riverplains Farm. It was Andy Bozdan's first open hunt with Tennessee Valley as huntsman, and the morning was filled with warm greetings from all who have anxiously awaited his arrival all summer.

The Cottesmore at Bisbrooke

Cottesmore-Hunt-Bisbrooke-170911-0076Here’s a gallery of excellent photographs of the Cottesmore foxhounds shot by Nico Morgan at Bisbrooke in the English Shires. The Cottesmore is a venerable pack, having been established in 1666 by Viscount Lowther. Perhaps the most colorful Master was Hugh Lowther, fifth Earl of Lonsdale, known to history as The Yellow Earl. Born in 1857, “his name was readily associated with the highest echelons of sport and scandal.”
