Clifford Hunt, a genuine old horseman and a passionate foxhunter, passed away on December 2, 2010 at age eighty-four. I can’t begin to tally the number of individuals whose lives this man changed. He was a teacher who created many dedicated foxhunters. He was a hosteller, and, with his wife and partner Laura, he provided visiting foxhunters with bed, meals, hirelings, and transport at his well-known Hunting Box in Boyce, Virginia for twenty-six years (1978–2004). Sportsmen came to The Hunting Box from Canada and all the northern states to experience foxhunting in Virginia. Many loved it so much they moved here.

I remember the day Matthew mentions. Cliff was actually leading the field that day so as soon as a doctor member in the field alighted, Matthew told Cliff he was in good hands and proceeded to lead the field and go on.
It was also Christmas Eve and Cliff arrived in the emergency room in his red coat looking like a beat up Santa.
