IN-PERSON ROTARY: Lt. Col. Larry Byers, Joint-Master of the Aiken Hounds

March 15, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Larry Byers will speak on the economic impact of the equestrian community.

Larry Byers has done everything from showing and eventing to his great passion – hunting. He spent 32 years in California where he was a career Marine, then worked as nance director of a water district. His sporting life as a whipper-in with Santa Fe Hunt in Temecula (CA) included three seasons as huntsman and four years as master. About six years ago Larry and his wife Pat moved to Aiken, SC. At the start of the 2011-12 season, he became joint-master of the Aiken Hounds. He still serves as honorary whipper-in for Aiken and Why Worry Hounds. From September through March, he spends four days a week in the hunt eld: a feat that would exhaust many riders half his age. If doing what you love keeps you young, then Larry has found his own personal fountain of youth.
