The Myopia Hunt welcomes all enthusiasts to participate as Subscribers, Patrons, and Cappers, and to enjoy the sport by following the hunt. We thank our many generous Landowners for making the hunt possible.
We are very pleased to have Huntsman Brian Kiely with us again this year, performing his magic with the Myopia hounds and working closely with the area landowners to preserve the country and scout out new hunting territory.
We are very excited about the 2014 season and look forward to having you with us.
Kim Cutler and Ted Mehm
Andy Rides On
In honor of our dear friend, Andrea Little Eaton, a long-time Hunt subscriber and treasured member of our community, we ask you to support a tribute created by Andy’s daughters, Bella and Tapley Eaton:
Bella and Tapley planted a dogwood tree in the Myopia Schooling Field recently, in honor of their mother. The tree looks out over the pond and the fences that Andy frequently jumped. Dogwoods were a favorite of Andy’s and we hope that you will join us in remembering her each time you pass through this beautiful spot.
In addition to the tree, Bella and Tapley have created a special team - team “Andy Rides On” - to honor their mother in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Andy was an incredible woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, rider and fox hunter. Please join us in either walking or donating to the “Andy Rides On” team in her memory by following this link to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer website.
Our deep apprecation goes out to Julie Lake, for helping Bella and Tapley bring their message to the hunt community who was so blessed to count Andy among them.
Join us for an early start to the Spring Roading season. Casual attire. See FIXTURES page for meeting days and times.

Friends and Partners of Myopia Hunt
The Myopia Hunt continues to enjoy a close relationship with the MFHA and our local land conservation organizations. As in the past, we ask that every subscriber show their support by becoming a member of the MFHA, Essex County Trail Association, and the Trustees of Reservations at Appleton Farms. This year we are adding the Essex County Greenbelt to the list because we hunt through Greenbelt land as well.
