My Experience at The Blessing of The Hounds By Irene Michaels
Exhilarating, Demanding and Magnificent. These are the words to describe the Blessing of the Hounds. Every time I go to the barn and prepare for a hunt I feel excitement. Each time is like the first time I ever rode.The beauty of the countryside, the hounds and the camaraderie between the riders warms my heart and soul. The friends I have made along the way through this magical journey has been wonderful and very fulfilling. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this very old and beautiful tradition that started back in the 16th century. I hope it lasts for more centuries to come.
