The Potomac Hunt Club hosted its annual Opening Meet on Oct. 31 — the formal start of the fox hunting season. The event included a Stirrup Cup — passing of refreshments — as well as a blessing of the hounds, horses, foxes and riders. Horses and riders were turned out in formal hunt attire including top hats and tails (in some instances) and braided manes.
