In the Hunt Country
Activities Among the Horse-Lovers of
Virginia and Maryland.
BY NINA CARTER TABB.
HE annual horse show at Fox
croft today will draw a crowd
of prominent sportsmen. This
show, which is run by the girls
of the school, assisted by Miss Char
lotte Noland, is one of the best days
of sport we have in Virginia. The
neighborhood is filled with parents
from all parts of the country who
have come to see their daughters ride.
Alumnae come back each year to
watch the progress of the younger
girls and many of them take part
in the program. The Davis Challenge
Cup, in which only the alumnae can
compete, is always an interesting
class. Those riding for It this after
noon will be Mrs. William Beverley
Mason, jr., formerly Miss Dorothy
Willing Randolph, one of the most
noted Virginia riders in the show ring
and the hunting field: Mrs. Barney
Balding, formerly Miss “Dot” Davis of
New York, who won the cup last year;
Miss Helen Bedford, who has been a
sensation in the show ring for the
last three days at the National Cap
ital Horse Show, where she has taken
ribbon after ribbon with her string of
five show horses, among the most
noted being Woodfellow Grayarno and
Musketeer.
Others riding for the Davis Cup will
be Miss Mary Hotchkiss, Miss Teresa
Shook, Miss Frances Frick, Miss Ruth
Bedford. Miss Sheila Potter. Miss
Genevieve Brady, Miss Mary Richard
son, Miss June Hanes. Miss Sally Mc
Adoo, Miss Laura Sprague, and as
there will be post entries undoubtedly
a good many more will come in to
make this a very interesting class.
Many of America’s prominent young
matrons and girls attended this
school and come back annually to
ride in the horse show.
* * * *
Foxrroft is among the leading
schools for young ladies in America
and its student body includes many
socially prominent members from all
parts of the country.
The "Wop" Club class ridden over
the Italian course is another inter
esting class, the girls ride with the
forward seat, which was taught to
Miss Macubbin and Miss Sprague,
teachers of riding at the school, by
Capt. Pietro S&ntlni. formerly in the
Italian cavalry.
In the pony classes for children
little Miss Ann Clay Bayly showed the
Foxcroft ponies at the National Show
on Saturday, as well as her own with
such marked success, will have her
string and many more of Virginia’s
good riders will be showing.
Although most of the classes are
for the girls at the school, there are
several classes for outsiders.
A large tent has been put up on
the lawn near the show grounds. Two
horsemen are coming from Baltimore
to judge the show. Two old Foxcroft
girls from Washington who will at
tend are Mrs. Sam Beach, who was
Miss Elizabeth Kemp of Middleburg,
and Miss Kathrine Snyder. The lat
ter’s marriage to Mr. Richard Shands
of Washington will take place in
Washington on Thursday.
Their wedding is of great interest
in this part of Virginia, where Miss
Snyder and Mr. Shands have visited
for years. Many of their friends
from here will go to Washington for
the wedding.

The National Capital horse show
was very successful, well managed and
enjoyed by all those who attended it.
One of the judges said last night that
•‘the old horse, Red Tape, never
looked better or was in better shape
for showing than he la now. This eon
of Light Brigade-Peraian Maid was
the outstanding winner of the three
day show. But the young horse—
Woodfellow, by Playfellow-Rappa
dowa—is going to be unbeatable in a
couple of years If he goes on as he
has started. I would rather have him
than any horse in the show."
Red Tape Is owned by Mrs. Robert
Guggenheim and Woodfellow by Miss
Helen Bedford of Connecticut. Still
another good horseman says “the
chestnut 4-year-old gelding—Report,
by Repulse-Prim Rose—owned by
Roger Bayly, was the best-looking and
outstanding horse of the Washington
Horse Show.”
- Others say that they like best Sand
Man and Sandden, owned by Mrs.
Augustus and ridden by Mrs. Cary
Jackson.
