Greenville Foothills Pony Club holds drag fox hunt in LandrumPublished 9:53am Friday, July 27, 2012
The Greenville Foothills Pony Club (GFPC) members recently were welcomed to the Landrum home of Mrs. Pat Hale, a former master of Green Creek Hounds Hunt Club, to participate in a drag fox hunt. The members warmed up by tackling a mounted obstacle course directed by Philip and Emmie Osborne of the hunt club.
The Pony Clubbers said they were impressed with the red clad hunt masters and the 20+ energetic hunting hounds on the ground. With the hot weather, the hunt was short, but all agreed the experience was one they would not soon forget. The Green Creek Hounds Hunt Club, the Osbornes, and the hounds all contributed to provide an introduction to fox hunting for the GFPC.
The day ended with a pool party and cookout hosted by Hale.
GFPC serves the equestrian youth in the six-county area of Anderson, S.C., Greenville, S.C., Oconee, S.C., Pickens, S.C., Spartanburg, S.C. and Polk, N.C.
