Join photographer Kindra Clineff as she documents the Myopia Hunt Club’s horses, riders and hounds throughout the fall hunt season. The landscape of the North Shore towns where Myopia holds its events proves well suited to the hunt. And, although they no longer pursue live foxes, the thrill of the chase remains.
