Sherman P Haight

It is with great sadness and tremendous respect that we report the passing of Sherman P. Haight, Jr, ex- MFH and founding director of the Museum of Hounds and Hunting of North America.

He was Past President of the MFHA, and responsible for the foxhound conformation standard still in use today. He was a founder of the US Pony Club, and was passionate about the sport of foxhunting and sharing it with as many as possible.

Sherman was inducted into the Huntsmen’s Room in 2015 for his remarkable contributions to our sport. He was a true sportsman and Gentleman, in every sense of the word.
