The whippers-in may change from hunt to hunt, but the designated whips are pictured below.
The Sewickley Hunt hounds are primarily American Foxhounds. They are lighter built, deeper and bigger voiced, strong nosed, and a properly independent yet, biddable hound. I have been outcrossing to the PennMarydel hound recently. This is a strain of the American hound. This increases the voice and scenting ability of the pack tremendously, and can slow them down just a bit (that’s a good thing in our steep, rough terrain). We do have a few crossbred hounds, those are hounds that have some of BOTH, English and American foxhound in their pedigree.
