Horn Blowing Contest – from the Guide for Hound Shows, Puppy Shows & Performance Trials
Saturday, May 28, 2016
Morven Park - Leesburg, VA
Every show should have a Horn Blowing contest after the judging of hounds at the end of the show or the night before. It is very popular with the attendees and serves to encourage improvement of this vital skill.
The National Horn Blowing Championship location has changed. The championship will now be held at the Virginia Hound Show in May. The new championship rules will allow any MFHA member hunt staff to compete regardless of if they've won another hound show competition. The MFHA will provide the 1st place winner with an engraved hunt horn, their name on the perpetual silver horn trophy and prize money. There will be three US or Canadian judges each year chosen by the Virginia Hound Show and the MFHA. Since this is a North American contest, foreign judges cannot judge.
