Hound Shows

Hound shows bring foxhounds of all types and all strains to the flags for viewing, comparing, and judging. Whether a master or huntsman is seeking certain bloodlines, or an outcross to introduce hybrid vigor to the gene pool within her kennels, she seeks such hounds at a hound show. Hound shows also give masters and huntsmen the opportunity to socialize and chat about the merits and traits of the canine objects of their desires. While the best matings may continue to be made in Heaven, they are often arranged at a hound show!


2020 Hound Shows

Due to COVID-19 recommended safety precautions, the 2020 Virginia Hound Show and the 2020 New England Hunts Hound Show have both been canceled.

However, Wentworth Hunt entered two hounds in the International Virtual Hound Show. Entered in this virtual show was a diversity of hounds across the thirty rings drawn from seven countries including over 250 hunts. The results of the show are available by clicking here to access the International Virtual Hound Show’s website. You will need to create a user id and password, but all members of the public are welcome to do so.
