quick internet search will likely advise that a
business partnership with a best friend might
not be such a good idea, often quoting the
well-known phrase that one should never mix business
with pleasure. Yet dynamic duos have paved the way
across endless platforms of the entrepreneurial world:
from middle school friends whose shared love of food
turned into the legendary ice cream brand of Ben &
Jerry’s, to the pair behind one of the largest publicly
traded companies worldwide, Charlie Munger and
Warren Buffett – even technology used every day like
Google and Instagram were co-founded by friends.
There are endless examples of why it can work, yet this
still seems to be the road less traveled when it comes to
the equestrian industry. There are countless family-run
operations, but rarely do you see two friends setting
out along this journey. However, that is exactly what
Darragh Kenny and Hardin Towell decided to do with
their business, Oakland Stables.
Combining family history, passion for horses and
ten years of friendship created quite the careers for
Business With Your Best Friend:
Why It Works for Darragh Kenny and Hardin Towell at Oakland Stables
the 31-year-old show jumpers, Kenny of Ireland and
Towell of the United States. The world-renowned
athletes were lucky enough to merge their worlds into
an international enterprise of elite training and high-
performance sales.
Business for Kenny and Towell was years in the making
as the pair began buying and investing in young horses
together while still pursuing their own individual
careers. In 2015 their partnership developed into a
company, aptly named TRK to combine their initials,
that the duo ran in part with top Venezuelan show
jumping athlete Andres Rodriguez. After Rodriguez
passed away in a tragic accident in January of 2016,
the business dissolved and Kenny and Towell both
continued to buy horses together while developing
their personal careers. Soon, Kenny’s business of
Oakland Stables, which he established in 2012, began
expanding to the point where he needed the helping
hand of another professional. With Towell in the midst
of a career transition from his position as the head
trainer at Evergate Stables, it only made sense for the

pair to join forces once again and make their venture
ofcial at the beginning of 2018.
“I think we all became very close during our TRK
business and then what happened [to Andres] was
very tragic, so I think it brought us even closer. Joining
together in Oakland beneted both Hardin and me,
and I think it makes us quite strong together,” said
Kenny of their partnership. “It’s very difcult for anyone
to run a business in this sport on their own. When you
can nd a business partner that is as strong as you are
it makes a huge difference.”
At the time the pair joined forces, both athletes were
ranked among the top 50 on the Longines FEI World
Rankings. Towell and Kenny wanted to continue to
grow their own successful careers while also providing
services to up-and-coming athletes with an elite training
program, as well as continuing their shared ownership
of high-performance hunter and jumper horses under
their Oakmont Stables LLC. The duo knew they could
run their own businesses individually, but that the
operation could be even stronger together.
“We wanted to be able to do both sides of the ocean
and do it really well. We wanted to have that for both
of us and for our clients and business,” said Kenny, who
spends the summer competing in Europe. Oakland’s
base in Meijel, Netherlands, serves as his home
throughout much of the year while Towell competes
and trains for the other side of the business on the east
coast of the United States.
“Not many high-caliber riders work together and trust
each other,” added Towell. “I think you do not see
many top athletes in this industry working together
because they are afraid that they’ll have their success
taken away from them by their partner.” Those worries
have not proven to be a factor for Towell and Kenny
as the pair’s trust in one another contributes to the
continuing success of their partnership. Oakland
Stables ourishes from the duo’s ability to play off of
each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and ultimately,
their friendship.
“We try to weigh out the weak points in the other and
make those points stronger. That’s our biggest thing –

I know my weak points and I try to get better at them
just as Darragh knows his weak points and he’s worked
to get better at them,” said Towell. “It’s a lot easier to
have somebody notice these things and tell you while
also helping you to improve than doing it all on your
While Towell has benetted from Kenny’s diversity
and talent in the ring, Kenny has learned from his
counterpart, as well, saying, “I have always really
respected how great Hardin was at communicating
with people and dealing with clients. He is extremely
good at that. The clients can really understand him
and he gives them a lot of condence. He is great
at communicating with a lot of business people. I’ve
always really respected that and he’s helped me a lot
with that. We work very well together.”
Even when arguments do arise, both Kenny and Towell
have learned to see the bigger picture and their
mutual respect helps the pair through those inevitable
roadblocks that any business faces. “We argue like
brothers,” admits Towell. “It’s challenging, but I think
it’s what makes it right because we can talk to each
other completely blunt right away and say what we feel
and then we go from there. One of us might not like
to hear what the other has to say sometimes, but we
completely feel like we can talk to each other. I know
there are times where we get mad at each other, but
it’s not from us not trusting each other. I know what
Darragh says comes from the heart and that he wants
the best for us.”
Positive attitudes and open minds keep their business
and their relationship moving forward. “I honestly
believe that if you want to be successful and have a
really good partnership, then you have to be able to
say whatever you are thinking to your business partner.
I think we have some ghts here and there, but it’s
always for the benet of the other,” maintained Kenny.
Their complementary skill sets are also an added benet
when it comes to the training program at Oakland
Stables. “Everyone that trains with us knows that either
Darragh or I will be there,” explained Towell. “They
come into it knowing that so they’re condent in both
of us. Clients can keep going with one person because
it’s the same program between both. We’re both very
good at training, but we also explain things differently
and sometimes have a different approach that might
help with a certain horse or a certain student, so it’s
very good to have a little bit of diversity but still be
condent in both of us.”
“A big goal for us is to educate young riders and
continue bringing them up in the sport to help them
achieve their goals. Hardin and I both really want that,”
said Kenny of their training operation. “We’ve brought
young kids in the low [jumpers] up to the 5* grand prix
level under our guidance. We want to keep trying to
do the best job we can with the people that want to be
involved with us.”
Although Oakland Stables places a great deal of
emphasis on the success of its training program for
students, Kenny and Towell must also make time to

grow themselves and their horses. When the focus must
shift to their individual careers, the support between
the two remains consistent. When Towell earned the
second-place award with the pair’s newly-purchased
Joli Jumper in the prestigious $500,000 ATCO Queen
Elizabeth II Cup at Spruce Meadows in July 2019, he
laughed that Kenny was the only person more excited
than himself.
“Joli [Jumper] and our other new horse, Tupac [Van De
Vrombautshoeve Z], Darragh and I bought together as
an expansion of our business. It was him and I, what
we’ve talked about doing for ten years and what we’ve
been doing for two years,” exclaimed Towell. “It’s one
thing to go out and have someone buy you a lot of
horses, but it’s another for us to do it ourselves. It’s quite
cool and it’s something both Darragh and I are proud
“That result was a big thing for us as friends and a big
thing for us a business. We put this investment into this
horse and he is turning out to be such a superstar,”
remarked Kenny. “It was late at night for me in Paris to
stay up and watch Hardin go, but it’s important to both
of us. I know Hardin put an awful lot of work into this
horse and it’s so rewarding to see it pay off.”
Kenny is no stranger to the winner’s circle as he has
continued to climb the world rankings through 2019, but
he is quick to credit much of his success to his well-run
partnership with Towell. “I think I really have a possibility
to achieve one of my own goals which is to be ranked in
the top 10 in the world. Another huge goal for me is also
to ride in the Olympics,” said Kenny of his hopes for the
2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. “I wouldn’t be able to
go for those goals without Hardin. There’s no chance I
could do any of this without his support.”
Towell stands behind Kenny and the goals of Oakland
Stables completely. “I enjoy taking care of things over
here and riding some of Darragh’s horses in America
while he’s in Europe – he knows what I put in and how
I’m behind him. Darragh and I have a lot of goals in
this business – a lot of long term goals to grow the
business and grow ourselves as riders. We can never
stop learning. We’re not content in where we are right
now – we can always improve.”
The unwavering support from Towell is reciprocated by
Kenny as both athletes set their long-term goals. Towell
continued, “Darragh knows that I have my own goals,
too. I am looking forward to the fall when I start aiming
for the [Longines FEI Jumping] World Cup™qualier
classes with our two horses and I will have clients that I
am training at those shows, too.”
Kenny and Towell eat, sleep and breathe horses, their
friendship and their business, but at the end of the day
the pair would not trade the all-consuming lifestyle they
share. “To be able to work with one of your best friends
is one of the greatest feelings. You always know that they
have your best interest at heart and that’s what works
really well between us,” praised Kenny. “As much as we
want our business to do well, we really ght for each
other to have success. I think that’s a really important
thing for people to have.”

Farmhouse Inn is the realization of fth generation Russian
River Valley farmers, vineyard owners and siblings, Catherine
and Joe Bartolomeis’ dream. The dream was to bring an
authentic wine country experience to guests of Farmhouse by
combining insiders’ wine country knowledge and relationships
and warm, professional hospitality with their locally grown,
simply prepared food, ne wine, farm-to-table spa and
luxurious accommodations Farmhouse guests arrive strangers
and leave friends.
Following the purchase of the property in 2001, the Bartolomeis
began a complete and ongoing renovation of the guest
rooms, restaurant, grounds and spa, which transformed the
Farmhouse into a top-rated wine country property. In 2014,
the Bartolomeis have just completed an $8 million expansion
adding 9 new luxury guest rooms, and brand new “stable”
spa, and completely upgraded grounds.
“The inspiration for the spa was a house that Ellen Degeneras
designed in Southern CA. it was a converted horse stable and I
loved it. I asked our design team to come up with a “renovated”
stable for our spa. The horse image just ‘animates’ the space
and was meant to be more illusion than entirely literal. The
murals were painted by Tina Wainwright. She is a local artist
who we love.” Catherine Bartolomei explained.

structure built in 2014. With wide shutters, tall ceilings,
stable doors and custom equestrian drawings, the Spa
at Farmhouse is already catching the attention of many
design publications. The Spa brings the outdoors in,
with outdoor spaces off of each treatment room where
guests can shower or lounge following their treatments.
Under the direction of world-renowned spa partners
Francis and Alexander, The Spa at Farmhouse is a small,
intimate retreat offering personalized services that include
massage, facials, hot stone and aromatherapy. Reecting
the Farmhouse Inn philosophy of using pure, fresh,
seasonal ingredients, the spa features natural, handmade
artisan products in an unhurried, tranquil environment. It
is truly 3000 square feet of tranquility.
The Farmhouse is comprised of historic buildings and new
buildings built in an historic style. Originally built in 1873,
the completely restored classic American farmhouse houses
the Michelin One Star restaurant. In 2014, working with
world renowned resort architects, SB Architects out of San
Francisco, and famed interior designer, Myra Hoefer out of
Healdsburg, CA, an $8 million addition and renovation of the
property completely transformed the Farmhouse into one of
America’s premiere destination resorts. Property-wide, the
Bartolomeis have found a beautiful balance between rustic
and elegant furnishing and fabrics, creating a serene, farm-
fresh environment property-wide.

Dana Goedewaagen started developing her eye for
photographing horses as an eight-year-old taking lessons
with pony trainer Emerson Burr at the Faireld County Hunt
Club (FCHC) in Westport, Connecticut. Burr taught her the
importance of a solid work ethic and attention to detail. He
revealed the amazing things that can happen when horses
and humans connect.
By 18, Dana decided she didn’t have the resources or talent
to pursue a riding career. Instead, she became a groom at
FCHC, caring for a barn full of brilliant hunters and jumpers,
including Leslie Burr-(Lenehan)-Howard’s rst big Grand Prix
jumper, Chase the Clouds. It was a thrilling, heady time—
until Chase the Clouds colicked and died. “It was my rst
great loss, my rst heartbreak,” Dana says. She left FCHC
soon after he died.
Dana Goedewaagen
Jerry Nielsen, Sr. owner of the Thoroughbred breeding
facility at Sunnyeld Farm in Bedford, New York, hired
Dana to groom for his daughters, Karen and Sandy, both
leading competitors on the junior hunter-jumper circuit.
At Sunnyeld, Dana cared for an impressive string of show
jumpers, including Watership Down and French Leave. After
Karen and Sandy aged out of junior competition, Dana
settled into grooming for Mary and Harvey Waller at Orleton
Farm in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
Grooming is grueling. After decades of working with horses
365 days a year, Dana made a clean break from the horse
business and began a new career as a respiratory therapist,
a job that allowed her time to pursue personal interests.

Seven years ago, a desire to create homemade Christmas
gifts inspired Goedewaagen to try her hand at photography.
Not long after she picked up her rst digital SLR, the work
ethic she learned from Emerson Burr kicked in and she
became determined to master the art of capturing life
through a camera lens. A chance visit to Orleton Farm
turned photographing horses into an obsession.
From the beginning, Dana’s photographs have shown her
groom’s eye for detail and connection. Her work focuses
on capturing individual personalities and the physical,
emotional, even spiritual links that bond horses and humans.
She particularly loves to photograph people who care for
horses—grooms, farriers, veterinarians—and to depict the
unique chemistry between equines and their caregivers.
To further support grooms and their work, Goedewaagen
photographs for The Grooms Award, which is presented
to the groom of the winning horse at events including the
Pennsylvania National Horse Show, the Devon Horse Show,
and the Del Mar National Horse Show. As a volunteer
photographer for Equine Advocates in Valatie, New York,
she helps raise funds to support 80 rescued horses, donkeys
and mules.
Dana appreciates every step of the winding road that led
from her rst riding lessons to her current life as a respiratory
therapist and equine photographer. “I’ve been lucky,” she
says, “I’ve had amazing jobs, met incredible people. For
over 10 years, I didn’t look at or touch a horse. I thought
I never wanted to see another one. Photography brought

he 10th Annual Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby
welcomed many new entrants, all whom enjoyed
the atmosphere and calm setting that is Franktown
Meadows. The iconic Sierra Nevada mountain
range is the stunning backdrop for this spectacular Derby
weekend and draws leading professional and amateur riders
from across the country. Riders loved the opportunity to take
to the pristine Franktown Meadows grass Derby Field. This
this annual charitable event supports the Juvenile Diabetes
Research Foundation.
The event began on a Friday, this year and Nick Haness
and Doubled up started the weekend by winning both os
the Welcome Stake sponsored by Looking Stone Farm and
Cavallo Stables.
“This is our rst year coming to Franktown Meadows and
we are really happy to be here. It’s spectacular, it’s beautiful,
the views, and the wonderful grass footing. I think all of the

horses are loving it here and so are we, Nick shared. Now
that we are here and starting to compete, and we can see
how well the horses are going here, I think we will come
back every year.”
Nick continued to talk about the successful day and the
young horse that led the eld, “I was really pleased with
Reese’s today, he is only a 6 year-old and the youngest horse
that we brought to compete. He really shined the most
today, so that was very exciting. I can tell his brain is happy
here, and he feels really at peace. There are many places to
exercise and trail ride around the facility and the horses can

Alexis Meadows and her trainer Morley Abey of Morley
Abey Show Jumping were enjoying their trip to Franktown
Meadows and even more delighted when Legato came
through to win the class.
“Jenny Karazissis has been one of my biggest role models
and I have wanted to attend Franktown Meadows Hunter
Derby since I heard about Jenny winning the Derby a
couple of years ago. Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby
has received so much good press, deservedly, as it is really
special what they are doing here, and the community
feeling that they have created. We had the opportunity to
attend this year and Morley was kind enough to make it
happen. Even though the barn is split between continents
as Joie is traveling in Europe with a client. Morley and I
are having an absolute blast, this facility is astoundingly
beautiful. Truthfully one of the best parts has been
hanging out here at the barn and enjoying the community
in which we are surrounded. Being here and on this eld is
fantastic, it really is so unbelievable, my gosh, I have never
seen anything so spectacular. It has been so wonderful to
be able to compete out there this weekend. 100% we will
be back, I cannot thank Lynne MacLean, Aimee LaFayette
and Natalie Garnett and all the family enough for the time
and effort it takes to put on an event like this. It is a one-
of-a-kind experience. It really is idilic here.” Meadows
Darby Furth Bonomi also a rst time visitor to the event
had a great time too, as both of her horses excelled on
the derby eld to take home 1st and 3rd place ribbons in
the $5,000 3’-3’3” Non-Pro Hunter Classic, presented by
“DaVinci and I have been together now for 4 years and he
has come so far. In the old days he was a little spooky, a
log always bit him, so that was hard, but now today he is
just so wonderful. The fence I was worried about was the
log fence, as we had not had the opportunity to practice
over it yesterday, and it was a lot of logs. However, today
he jumped it like a champ, he didn’t even look at the log

and was an absolute dream boat. He certainly has grown
up over the years, and logs are not as big of a deal now.
He really loves it here, but of course all of the horses love
it here, as soon as you get out on that derby eld they
start to relax. When you get to gallop the footing feels
spongy, another reason for all of the horses to be super

happy at Franktown Meadows. I look forward to coming
back again next year, I love riding on grass and I have
to say this is the nicest grass eld I have ever ridden on.
The setting and the sheer beauty of this venue it really
is unparalleled.”
Sunday brought more sun and smiling faces as the event
lled again with horses, riders and spectators for what
was to be a three round thriller, as Kyle Arbuckle riding
Emma Townsend’s Fanciful went head-to-head with
Jenny Karazissis on Lisa Wu’s Ravenswood to win the
$30,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby.
The two riders were tied at the end of the Handy Round
with a score of 360 and the decision was made for both
riders to complete an additional Handy Round to break
the tie, and ultimately decide the winner.
Karazissis was rst to enter the eld on Ravenswood,
and was awarded a third round score of 182, resulting in
an overall score of 542. The gauntlet had been tossed.
Arbuckle rose to the challenge piloting Fanciful to a
total third round score of 196 including her rst perfect
100 from judge 1, to ultimately take the win with overall
score of 542.

This was a very special day for this
horse and rider combination as it was
their rst  Derby  together,  and  Kylee’s
rst International  Derby win.  “Fanciful
was amazing, and it was really fun to
compete at Franktown Meadows. This
really is my favorite horse show of the
year, and to be successful here is just
the icing on the cake. I am so happy to
have won such a prestigious class. I wish
that Emma [Fanciful’s owner] could have
been here with us to celebrate. He really
rose to the occasion for me, as I was
excited and a little nervous entering the
eld  after  Jenny,  but  I  had  condence
that he would put in a great effort for
me.” Arbuckle explained.
Trainer Ned Glynn of Sonoma Valley
Stables was ecstatic over the duo’s
success. “It was a lot more fun once it
was all over, then when it is actually
happening. It was super exciting for our
young rider to go up against arguably
one of the best Derby riders of all time.
Jenny had a really good trip, which was
incredibly nerve racking as Kylee was
waiting in the wings. To watch Kylee
go in there and ride the way she did
was incredibly exciting and incredibly
rewarding. I have never been involved
with a ride off for the biggest class of
the show, but there is a  rst time for
everything, so you might as well make it
big when it happens.”

Medal Finals
Welcome to the OHJA’s 2019 Medal Finals
Riders competed in qualifying OHJA medal classes throughout the show year to accumulate enough points
to secure a place in this years’ Medal Finals competition.
During Medal Finals riders are tested on their horsemanship knowledge and riding ability. “Phase One” of
Medal Finals is a written test on horsemanship that takes place Friday morning, August 30th. All Medal Finals
riders must complete the written test Friday morning before their rst riding round (“Phase Two”). The written
test is worth a total of 10 points. The written test score is combined with the rider’s rst round score; the
combined top ten scores in each division will advance to the Final Round, which takes place during the
afternoon on Saturday, August 31st. Please join us during and after the Final Round for the OHJA BBQ and
Fundraiser, generously sponsored by Purina. Tickets for the BBQ can be purchased in the show ofce or at the
BBQ. All proceeds benet the OHJA, a non-prot organization. Please check with the show ofce for the start
times of these events.
The Oregon Hunter Jumper Association takes this opportunity to thank all of its sponsors, including those that
donated prizes. It is because of the continued support from our sponsors, donors, and members that the OHJA
is able to continue its mission; to bring together the equestrian community, to promote horsemanship and
sportsmanship, to encourage and promote public support of the equestrian community, and to enhance the
knowledge of equestrian competition. I would also like to give a big thank you to Team NW for hosting the
OHJA Medal Finals and for their continued support of the OHJA.
On behalf of the OHJA Board of Directors, we congratulate all of our competitors and wish them the best of

What is a Medal Class?
A medal class is an equitation class in which the rider com-
petes to qualify for a “medal nal” at the end of the year.
Who is Eligible to Compete in a Medal Class?
To qualify for the OHJA Medal Finals, a rider must accumu-
late at least 10 points during the show season. However,
once entries close for the show holding the OHJA Medal
Finals, OHJA, in consultation with show management, may
invite up to 10 additional riders who have not accumulated
10 points, starting with the highest point earners
How are OHJA Medal Classes Conducted?
At least 3 riders must complete the course for the class to
count toward the OHJA Medal Finals and for the medal to
be awarded. Riders in the Mini Medal classes compete over
fences not to exceed 2’6”, riders in the Children’s and Adult
Amateur Medal classes compete over fences not to exceed
3’, and riders in the Junior/Senior Medal classes compete
over fences 3’6” in height. There must be a “ride-off” in
each medal class between at least the top 2 riders, with 4
How do Riders Accumulate Medal Points?
Points are accumulated based upon a rider’s placing in qual-
ifying classes. Ten points are awarded for 1st place, 6 points
for 2nd place, 4 points for 3rd place, 3 points for 4th place,
and 2 points for 5th place. Riders who win Mini Medal and
Children’s Medal qualifying classes may continue to com-
pete until they accumulate 25 points, and riders who win
Adult Amateur and Junior/Senior Medal classes may con-
tinue to compete until the Medal Finals.
Who is Eligible to Compete
in OHJA Medal Finals?
To qualify for the OHJA Medal Finals, a rider must accu-
mulate at least 10 points during the show season. However,
once entries close for the show holding the OHJA Medal
Finals, show management is allowed to invite up to 10 ad-
ditional riders who have not accumulated 10 points, starting
with the highest point earners.
How are OHJA Medal Finals Conducted?
All riders in the OHJA Medal Finals compete in 1 round over
fences and take a written test. Scores from the 1st round and
written test are combined to determine the top 10 nalists,
who then compete in a 2nd round of testing called a“ride
off”. In the Children’s, Adult Amateur, and Junior/Senior
Medal Finals, the “ride off” is over fences. However, in the
Mini Medal Finals, the “ride-off” cannot include testing over
fences; it must be on the at or the judge may ask the riders
horsemanship questions. Prizes are awarded through 10th
place, entries permitting.

since she had qualied at the Beaujolais but
was not able to ride at the Champagne Classic
due to an injury.
We also had the regular Show High Point and

Driving Report
By Diana Axness, Driving Director
On August 9th through the 11th, the driving
division held our rst American Driving
Society recognized Combined Driving Event
(CDE) at Donida Farm Equestrian Center. It
was a tight squeeze making all of the elements
of a full CDE t into the available space - but
we did it! It would not have been possible
without the expert guidance of Marc Johnson
(our course designer), the outstanding support
from Dave and Gwen Blake (Donida owners),
and the hard work of those on the EI driving
committee. ank you all!
Congratulations to the overall winners of each
of the divisions:
Training Level - Suzi Dixon
Preliminary Level - Mandy Hood
Intermediate Level - Karen Milojevich
Our last driving event of the season is a two
day driving trial on September
14th and 15th. It will be at Donida Farm
Equestrian Center, of course!
We hope to see you there as either a driver,
volunteer, or spectator!

Entries are open for the culminating event of
our show season! The LPSDC Championships
will be held at Aspen Farms in Yelm
Washington on Saturday October 12th and
Sunday October 13th. In addition, there will
be an OPEN Schooling Show happening
at the same time and venue! This provides
another opportunity to get your horse out
and enjoy a venue that is rarely open to
dressage riders.
Entries are open until October 1st. Any
mailed entries postmarked after closing date
accepted only if ride times available and
subject to additional fees. Go to Foxvillage
EQ Entries to sign up!
The Championship classes are open for
riders that qualied at LPSDC schooling
shows during the show year November 1,
2018 October 1, 2019. The last two LPSDC
schooling shows are September 14 and
15 at Kitsap Saddle Club. To qualify for a
Championship class, the rider must have
earned two qualifying scores of 55% per
level, per division and from two different
judges, at two separate competitions.
The Open Show is open for everyone. You
do not have to be a LPSDC member to enter.
If you become a LPSDC member or renew
your membership by January 31, 2020 your
rides at the 2019 Open show can (with a
qualifying score) count towards the Year
End Awards held in 2021.
The event will have two rings, stalling for
40 horses, haul-ins allowed, 10 RV hookups
and plenty of room for camping. Dogs are
welcome as long as on a leash and kept away
from the Dressage Courts. LPSDC member
and Region 6 Representative Jo Renn has
graciously offered to be Show Manager.

More details to come
An Ordinary August Morning
For those of us who live “o the strip” (local
parlance for the farms of the Woodbrook
neighborhood), getting to a 9am hound exercise
can take some doing. ere's trac to contend
with—and many of us do literally wade through
the army to get there. ere's always a list of
other things we should be doing, things closer
to home, things more lucrative, things that nag
in the backs of our minds. A hunt is an event,
planned for and dressed for, a day tidily set aside
for, but hound exercise is a brisk trot wedged into
an already tightly scheduled day.
Friday the 16th dawned with no sunshine to
herald the delights it would hold. An ordinary
morning of rushing and tacking—and did I
mention I'd persuaded Emily Rang that she could
easily ride at nine and be back to the oce in time
for a lunch meeting? e rst sign of unexpected
extra fun came when our small eld spied
Monsieur Fox Simon climbing into the hound
truck that usually only ferries water on hound
exercises. Try as we might, we couldn't see if he
had a scent bag with him—perhaps he was out
for a lark, eager to see how the new puppies have
integrated into the hunting pack—but no! ose
of us who'd serendipitously roused ourselves
to come “out for a trot” would get to watch the
rst hunting work of the J litter. Joshua, Jolene,
Jumpstart, Jazz, Jodhpur, Jeddy, and JBLM were
to make their debut!
e warm up consisted of a brisk trot around
Lake Mondress and the pack struck the line near
the intersection of the fence line and the Elledge
Crossing Mainline. e voice was immediate and
robust. e pack hunted straight and hot until
they found their quarry—whereupon we realized
that a dierent sort of young entry had a rst that
day. Oliver Wallace (all of ve-and-one-third) le
his trusty ride in the hound truck to run in the
footsteps of one of his heroes. Ollie has walked
out with the pack most of the summer (he's now
adept at avoiding puppies on couples) and he
decided he was ready to follow Simon and lay
his rst line. e pack and Ollie were jubilant at
their accomplishments. So many young things
growing up. en we realized we'd checked in
the middle of a wasp's nest—ah August.
e eld took a detour (to avoid wasps) and met
the pack in the Logistics Center Oaks where they
watered and had a rest.
Despite the hour, the inauspicious day—overcast
and cool—meant that the fox, hounds, and horses
were able to muster the energy for another line.
Emily and her
is your greatest resource to learn more
about drag fox hunting with us, our
hounds, activities, and club history.

themselves (noon meetings beckoned) and the
eld hacked to the ridge side of McCall Hill.
e hounds cast in the wetland (currently dry)
known as the Mallard Pond (no ducks presently
in residence) and hunted the line to the edge of
the Hunter Trials Field. Monsieur Fox (no doubt
faster without the aid of his kit-fox Ollie) ran
a splendid line and the eld was graced with
strong voice (Joshua inherited his grandmother
Ketchup's voice, so he may be one-eyed, but he
has twice the sound!) A proud huntsman and
her sta hacked the pack back to the kennel
and the eld dispersed o to our usual Friday
aernoons. Making the trek for hound exercise
is a gamble—some days it's a trot around the
block and some days it's a barn-burner.

Board Member Introductions
New board members come and go, in threes each
year, and they never quite receive the introduc-
tion or fanfare they deserve. To this end we'll be
introducing a board member each month, with
a few pertinent details and a few questions from
the Proust Questionnaire
(posthumously edited by the
ghost of Siegfried Sassoon).
This month we showcase
Theresa Lazares, our new
Membership Chair. For years
the membership duties have
been borne by our Hon.
Secretary Michelle Hodeman,
assisted by R.J. West, Advisory
MFH. is year we were lucky
to snag eresa and put her to
work. She's a welcoming face
in the hunt eld and her eye
for eBay keeps many of the
sta spily dressed—if you
have membership questions
please reach out to her. She's
in the roster, and soon will be
in charge of updating it, so you
can be sure her phone number
is correct!
eresa's rst season hunting
was back in 1986, when Diane
Amoroso was hunting the
pack. She mostly played polo in the eighties before the hunting bug
caught her. As a member on-and-o through the nineties eresa
married her husband Danny and raised two children on their farm
in Gig Harbor. eresa came back to WHC a few years ago and has
hunted her een-year-old, bay, Oldenburg mare Indee for the past
few seasons. She was awarded her colors at the end of the last season
and we look forward to her delightful presence in the hunt eld.
eresa's answers to selected questions from the Proust Question-
naire (posthumously edited by the ghost of Siegfried Sassoon)
Your favorite virtue?
I don't have one.
What quality do you most appreciate in your friends?
Where would you like to live?
Right where I'm at.
Your favorite movie star?
Anthony Hopkins
Your favorite hunting memory?
When Kate, Michaela, and I got lost on area 9 and ended up at
a dead end. We had a lovely aernoon making up our own hunt
trying to nd the rest of the hunt.
Your favorite mount?
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
At the end of the day having a glass of wine beside my re pit,
watching my horses graze in their pastures.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I'd like to be 30 years younger.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Raising my kids.
If you were to die and come back as a person, animal, or a thing,
what would it be?
As a dog, they're always so happy.
It’s your way of life
It’s our business to protect it!

e View From the Driveway
Humans are peculiar creatures—they have
very strong opinions on all the places one
should not li one's leg. e rules of the
human pack can be a bit mystifying. ey
frequently look at me, sigh, and say, “Jupiter,
you're not supposed to be in the house.” I'm
not sure what those words mean, so I ignore
them. On the whole, I think I've distilled
the rules down to a few simple guidelines:
• Don't get on the furniture, except when
no one's looking.
• Short people bring snacks, short dogs
bring trouble.
•Only pee in places where you can still see
the sky.
•Make sure you're not the only dog who can
reach the table top during human meals;
ey think if they walk away from a dish of
food it should stay exactly as they le it, so
you don't want to be the only one liable for
doing the responsible thing and nishing
that food.
All in all, it's not hard to be a barn dog.
e humans are very fond of standing in
the middle of the arena and telling other
people what to do—they even nd strangers
to come do it! e last stranger, Wendy
Murdoch, thought I was delightful (she's
not wrong) and I helped her with two days
of standing in the arena. (e plate leavings
were exceptional.)
Beyond that, we're nally back to fun—Jenn
got the scent bottle out this morning! I
found her alchemical laboratory soon aer I
moved in (can't keep a good nose o the job).
e humans call it the “wash rack,” but it's
where she hangs the lures and mixes potions
of scent. Everyone else kept on tacking
horses—as if magic weren't happening
before our very noses. With a few pours
and swirls she conjured a red fox and then
sealed it up in a little bag for Simon to carry.
'Twasn't proper lines we ran, but little nds
so the pups could work their noses. Aer the
rst, she let us work through the bracken
and brambles. ose pups found Simon and
the hound truck, but they worked true and
didn't babble. I think they'll learn the game
just ne. e days are nally shortening,
and might even cool o, so real hunting
will be next. It's a good thing I've gotten
the humans and their house all gured out,
they've added a new one to the pack. ey
call him William. So far he's just noisy, but
I imagine he'll grow up like the rest of the
human pups and start dropping treats.
