2013 Live Oak Hounds USPC Foxhunting Challenge Award
August 1, 2013 (Lexington, KY) -
The seventh annual Live Oak Hounds USPC Foxhunting Challenge Award is
made possible through the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. C. Martin
Wood III, Joint Masters of the Live Oak Hounds in Monticello, Florida,
and Past Presidents of the MFHA. The Award is designed to encourage Pony
Club members who do not regularly hunt to try the sport, and to reward
members who hunt on a regular basis to act as mentors to the
less-experienced Pony Club members. $10,000 in awards will go to the top
six Pony Clubs who regularly take the greatest number of active Pony
Club members out hunting.
