OVH Saturday November 14th, 2015 Closing Hunt
On a typical day prior to a traditional fox hunt, Hunt members gather on horseback for a stirrup cup. A "parting cup” (usually port or sherry) presented to a rider on horseback — while their feet are in the stirrups of the saddle. Stirrup cups range from shot glass size to large, fist-sized cups.

Looking back, 2015 was a great year. I love the Ottawa Valley Hunt! I love being in the moment, listening to the hounds and watching them follow the scent laid by our drag layers. I love watching horses gallop across fields and enjoy the beautiful countryside thanks to wonderful landowners! I have met some amazing riders and made new friends at the OVH--Thank you!
