David Ellis began riding in the UK in 2001 and was introduced to foxhunting through Misty Morning Hounds in Florida. In 2008, David joined Chagrin Valley Hunt when he moved to Ohio and currently holds a second hunt subscription with Fort Leavenworth Hunt in Kansas City, Missouri. David is a pilot with Delta Airlines which affords the Ellis’ the unique opportunity to travel and hunt with, to date, 14 different hunts nationwide. The Ellis’ are celebrating their 8th year of marriage this year.
Piper Ellis was born in 2012 and began hunting when she was 3 on her miniature horse, Roman, who was led on foot by David and Solange. Piper now hunts on Pancake and is ponied by Solange. The Ellis’ hope to continue their love of hunting as a family with RFHH and also expand hunting opportunities for their clientele with RFHH.
