Each autumn, it is a time-honored Carolina tradition to hold blessings for the fox-hunters' hounds and horses. For Tryon Hounds, one of North Carolina’s oldest hunts, established in 1920’s, the Blessing of the Hounds marks the official opening of fox hunting season and is traditionally held on Thanksgiving morning.
Go trail hunting in England. Don't worry, fox hunting has been outlawed. Someone sets a scent trail through the woods and the hounds follow it. No foxes are killed an you still get to race through the countryside.
