Internationally renowned Master and huntsman Hugh J. Robards engagingly informs foxhunters, new or experienced, how to more fully absorb the drama of the hunt. What is the huntsman doing? Why does he do that? What about the whippers-in? The Field Master? The hounds? The fox? What problems do each encounter in the field during the course of a typical hunt? What decisions must they make? It may be a revelation to some, especially those who hunt to ride, but even while standing still, things are happening if you know what to look for and how to interpret what you see.

Review:

Robards is a master storyteller. (Martha A. Woodham Covertside )

For those who have never hunted before but may wish to, Foxhunting, How to Watch and Listen is the perfect introduction...Foxhunting is full of stories, anecdotes, and humour, but it is equally a fascinating read for those who want to truly understand hunting. (The Irish Field )

Three little words of advice to all foxhunters, experienced, novice, or hopeful: Read. This. Book... an ideal introduction to the sport, as well as a useful addition to more experienced hunters' libraries. Whether one rides to hunt, or as is perhaps more common these days, hunts to ride, this book should be required reading. (Betsy Manierre The Nsl Newsletter )
