Toronto North York Hunt
IUHH Members Gather at Toronto North York Hunt (TNYH)
The 2017 Annual Meeting of the International Union of Hunting with Hounds (IUHH) took place in Mulmur, Ontario last weekend. Representatives from England, France, New Zealand and the United States met to share their ideas, experiences and challenges around a common thread--hunting with hounds. The Annual meeting held at the Caledon Mountain Trout Club was organized by Laurel Byrne, MFH and Michael Byrne, president of the Toronto & North York Hunt.

"The level, fertile fields above the escarpment provide a prime environment for the cultivation of a variety of crops including vast quantities of potatoes. The escarpment itself consists of steep slopes and river valleys surrounded by extensive forests. Below it, Mulmur descends into gently rolling farmlands and rural areas."**
