steve farrin.amwell natl2013Huntsman Steve Farrin, parading Amwell Valley hounds at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (2013).

It’s time for our annual report on the recent moves of huntsmen across North America. The huntsman is my hero. From the time we mount up and for the few hours that follow, it is he or she most directly responsible for the day’s sport. How the huntsman has bred, trained, deployed, and communicated with his troops—the hounds—has everything to do with the satisfaction of our day in the field.

The moves have been numerous this season, and, in a two cases, we have experienced whippers-in finally achieving their dream of a pack of their own to hunt. We’ll catch up with Alasdair Storer, Andrew Bozdan, Kathryn Butler, Stephen Farrin, Danny Kerr, Emily Melton, and Timothy Michel.

That was a fantastic report
# A.V.L. Kepner 2019-07-01 13:16
Little confused by the Robert Taylor.
# Gretchen Pelham 2019-07-01 19:01
Sorry about the confusion concerning Robert. I must have misunderstood the story I was given. The appropriate correction has been made!
# Elizabeth Howard 2019-07-01 15:30
What about Charles Montgomery, Noel Ryan, and Andrew Merin?
# Elizabeth Howard 2019-07-01 15:32
Or Alf Caldwell?
# Gretchen Pelham 2019-07-01 19:03
I always miss someone. Please send me whatever you know, and I'll follow it up.
# Joan Harvey Poskey 2019-07-16 10:26
And Jeff Woodall.

I want to address the comment by Norman Fine "I always miss someone." Please -you can't 'miss' someone if no one tells you! Ergo, someone has missed telling you! And great that your readers pipe up to help share the news. (My end of the world is quiet, no news here!!)
# Gretchen Pelham 2019-07-02 19:41
Thank you, Denya. I sure would like to hear from more people with newsworthy info!
# John Anderson 2019-07-16 17:05
Norm, I expect you already have this info, but as someone above asked about Noel Ryan and Jeff Woodall, Noel has opted to leave hunt service to focus full time on his work as a real estate agent and Jeff has moved to Keswick as a whip. I haven't heard where Charles Montgomery is heading, but would be interested to know if you have any info.
# Gretchen Pelham 2019-07-17 16:55
Thank you, John. I'll try to find out more.
# John Anderson 2019-07-17 17:29
As will I.
