ABOUT THE HUNTSMAN

Adrian Smith

Adrian Smith joined us in May of 2010.  Adrian entered professional hunt service as a career in England while still in his teens.  He was a huntsman in Virginia for 10 years prior to moving to Metamora.  His job is to breed, train, care for and, most importantly, direct our hounds while they are hunting.  These tasks are done in consultation with the Masters.

ABOUT THE HOUNDS:

The Metamora Hunt hounds are primarily crossbreds — a particular variety of the foxhound breed.  Friendly by nature, they come in a variety of colors and coats, both smooth and “broken;” but have been carefully bred for qualities that we value.  Each has a name and personality.  Their health, happiness and well being are our highest priorities.
