Remember the Hunt?

I saw a sign in North Jersey over the weekend advertising the hunt in Far Hills, which took place a few weeks ago. It reminded me of the Monmouth County Hunt that used to be held every October in Middletown. I would have to say, and I bet some others of a certain age would agree, that the Hunt was the single best social event in Monmouth County of the entire year. It was as anticpated to a 18 year old (and older) as Christmas is to a 6 year old. I hope the "hunt" grounds do not get developed, if they haven't already, and the hunt someday returns to Middletown.

I too have fond memories of the hunt. I think the Middletown police put the kabosh on that event.

I was there and still have pics. I have one that shows the Woodstock-like proportions of the mess/garbage left behind. If that's at all behind the reason they quit can't say I blame them.

The property is still undeveloped - if arial recon is any indication...

What hunt do you like, the Far Hills or the Monmouth.

The Monmouth was my favorite because it was close to home. The Far Hills hunt did a pretty good job though the one time I went to it.
