At the Virginia Foxhound Club's 62nd annual show at Morven Park in Leesburg, there was all-day action in four rings.
In top photo, Howard County-Iron Bridge Hunt member Katie McCoy accepts the winning prize from Casanova Hunt master Joyce Fendley, left, and judges Wendi and Epp Wilson. Epp Wilson is huntsman and master of the Belle Meade Hunt in Midland, Georgia. The Casanova Hunt is kenneled near Warrenton.
Next, a hound from the famed "red ring-necked" pack of the Orange County Hunt in The Plains pounces on a treat as he shows his paces to judges in the American ring.
Former Orange County Hunt huntsman Melvin Poe, center of next photo, regales Jessica Swan of Warrenton, left, and Alex and Jacquie Langer of Reston with tales from his nearly nine decades in the hunt field. Poe, who lives in Hume, currently handles the horn for the private Bath County Hunt in central Virginia.
Current OCH huntsman Reg Spreadborough accepts the winning trophy from Middleburg Hunt master Penny Denegre.

Volunteers and hunt members worked feverishly to rebuild the kennels and hunt stables after the original building was destroyed by fire in the spring. Four hunt horses and nine hounds were killed in the deadly blaze.
