Blessing of the Hounds

 

September 2010 Issue

 

     The 2nd Annual Blessing of the Hounds will be held on October 2, 2010 at J & S Sport Horses arena in Dillon, MT. Sponsored by the Treasure State Hunt, this traditional, old English ceremony will officially open the 2010-11 hunt season.

     The service begins at 10:00 a.m. and the officiating priest will be Father Russell Radoicich of the Holy Trinity Orthodox Christian Church in Butte , MT.

     The Blessing will be followed by a short, two-hour hunt. The feasting will begin at 3:00 p.m. at the St. James’ Episcopal Church Community Hall in Dillon with a fully-catered meal.

     Treasure State Hunt was organized in 2009 by Dr. John Xanthopoulos, who is Huntsman and Master of Hounds. He and his wife Susan own 15 couples of

English Fox Hounds, and operate J & S Sport Horses in Dillon. The hounds are exercised twice per week, and hunts are conducted about every ten days.

     Check RMR’s Calendar of Events for this year’s Hunt schedule. For more information about the Treasure State Hunt, phone 406-660-0558; or visit jssporthorses.com.
