Thanksgiving Day, November 28th at 10:00 am
2921 North Pacolet Road, Landrum SC
The Blessing of the Hounds, a local Thanksgiving Day tradition for 93 years, marks the beginning of the formal hunt season for The Tryon Hounds. This time-honored tradition is a delight for the whole community - young and old. Spectators will relish in the pageantry of the braided horses and the foxhounds and the riders dressed in formal hunt attire. Men in their scarlet coats and the ladies wearing formal black shadbellies - all with polished boots glistening in the sunlight.
Hot chocolate and spiced, hot cider will be served along with homemade cookies. There will be hunt country calendars for sale. The public is welcome to attend this 30 minute historic ceremony.
