 Welcome

Shakerag Hounds, the oldest recognized mounted foxhunt in Georgia, celebrates its 70th season of foxhunting beginning in October 2013 with Opening Meet. It all began in 1943 when a group of horse and hunting enthusiasts at Chastain Park in North Atlanta started what was to become the Shakerag Hounds. Today Shakerag is Seventy Years Strong with nearly 100 member families who continue to support a keen pack of foxhounds and celebrate a club that maintains the rich tradition of foxhunting.

Shakerag’s 70th Opening Meet was a celebratory occasion with a big crowd of members and guests there from the ceremonies of the morning all the way through till the last bite of the wonderful breakfast we all enjoyed.

Over 150 people attended the events of the day with more than 50 riders mounted in all fields, and other guests who rode the Tally Ho wagons and joined in for the hunt breakfast afterward.

Members with 20-plus years of continuous membership in Shakerag were applauded for their support over the last seventy years. Bob Corr, past master who joined the hunt in 1963 was there to be recognized as the member present with the longest tenure with the hunt.

Photographer Ingrid Krampe and her team were out in the field all morning snapping photos of the riders, hounds and the Tally Ho Rendevouz at mid point.
