  • Guidebook Feature - This month we are featuring audio CD, "Rhymes Honoring Horses & Hounds" narrated by Brian Munn. While not a guidebook, we feel this CD should be in every foxhunters collection. Mounted hunting scenes have been featured in movies and television dramas, but there has been so little poetry written about our sport. Brian Munn wanted to share a few of the gems he discovered. Order you copy today.
