Opening Fox Hunts 2017
The Chula Homa Hunt hosted its 35th annual Opening Meet and Blessing of the Hounds at the home of Mr. and Mrs. David McGowan on November 11, 2017 in Brandon, Mississippi. More than 40 riders and 200 spectators from Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, and Louisiana attended the event.
Janice Clemons and Ginna McGowan co-chaired this event. Hunt festivities began with a catered breakfast and silent auction. Masters and staff then gathered the hounds for the Blessing and stirrup cup. Once the hounds were cast, spectators followed on specially designated tally-ho wagons to experience the hunt.
