I was passing through Hamilton, Massachusetts and came upon a horse show at the Myopia Hunt Club Schooling field. The Myopia Hunt Club was founded in 1882. They still have a formal hunt season in the fall, but as opposed to chasing a real fox, the hounds follow a laid scent. As a teen, I took riding lessons at Myopia with my good friend Deb. I have some fond memories of riding a dapple grey Arabian through open fields, woods and hills in this area.
I saw the last two events of the show; the Hunt Team Challenge and the Myopia Cross which is a course of cross country and show jumps. Horses and riders all demonstrated their incredible skill and elegance.
