Thanksgiving Morning Fox Hunt Ride
Ever see a real Fox Hunt? They don't hunt real Fox, but they do dress up, ride horses and run the Hounds, chasing the scent of Fox, dragged through the woods on a rag.
For years in Medfield, Ma the Norfolk Hunt Club on Thanksgiving morning has run a English style Fox Hunt through the woods and fields of Medfield, Sherborn and Dover.
Over the past 30 years we have "hunted the hunt" by bicycle. Weather permitting, we will do it again this year. The Hounds follow the scent, the horses follow the hounds and the bicycles follow "The Hunt" Simple as that!
Heres the drill: Meet at the start of the event at 10:00 am Thursday November 27th on North Street in Medfield Ma.and head to the Medfield State Hospital grounds to watch them ride through. Return back to the start by 12:00. Sometimes we catch them and sometimes we don't. We do however get out for what always turns out to be a wonderful ride with a story for the dinner table.
Antique Raleighs or British bicycles only. Proper Dress Required. Helmets optional.
Email me if you have any questions. Cash prize for the "Best Dressed"
Hot Tea will be served. Bring your cup.
We hope to see you there.
