Judith Tabler grew up near and has been a member of the Meadow Brook Hunt Club. She is an author, freelance writer and photographer, and has also been a professor of literature and languages at Marymount University. She lives in McLean, Virginia.
Well researched and accurate, this book is a veritable who's who of American foxhunting. Ms.Tabler details the leading characters, sportsmen and women of Long Island society, the good and the bad, but all authentic. The bonus is this book is fun and informative, a good read for anyone interested in New York City and sporting life in general. Many of the Meadow Brook members were accomplished in yachting, horse racing, polo, car racing, golf, etc., all over the world. An enjoyable gallop through one hundred years from 1871 to 1971, the fascinating stories kept me turning the pages.

Foxhunting with Meadow Brook is an important book for all who are interested in the evolution of leisure activities and the important role that fox hunting played in the later part of the 19th Century....[It] provides a detailed history of the Meadow Brook Hounds from our founding in 1881 to the end of the Hunt in 1971.
