Virtual Britsburgh Live presents....
Hartwood, Horse and Hound
For many years in October, Hartwood Acres Park has played host to The Sewickley Hunt. Drag hunting, or draghunting, is a form of equestrian sport, where mounted riders hunt the trail of an artificially laid scent with hounds. The Sewickley Hunt have been drag hunting since 1922 and the Hunt is one of the oldest in the US.
In this Virtual Britsburgh Live event we will explore the English and equestrian origins of Hartwood Acres, look briefly at the origins and history of fox and drag hunting in the local area as well as in the UK. We will be joined by several speakers from the Sewickley Hunt (the only remaining drag hunt in the Pittsburgh area). Pictures and video will be shown throughout.
Hartwood, Horse and Hound will be moderated by Bonny Diver, who has over thirty years' experience in radio, including iHeart Radio, KDKA and more; she is also a longtime member of the Sewickley Hunt; and Director of Hair Peace Charities.
Note: The Sewickly Hunt is a drag hunt in which no animals are harmed.
