The Farmington Hunt kennels and clubhouse are located in northwestern Albemarle County near Free Union. Our territory encompasses not only the rolling hills and fields at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we have followed hounds since 1929, but also reaches into historic southern Albemarle along the Hardware and James rivers. Our country’s diverse terrain presents constant opportunity for great sport with a wide variety of riding experiences.
Newly elected Board members are Jennifer Cofield, Carol Ham, and Martha Drum: all active foxhunters. These horsewomen bring great interest and talent to the board serving on the social activities committee with Shelly Thompson, the finance committee and Martha has agreed to head up the membership committee, a very big job. She is taking over that job from Debbie Wright and putting together an active committee. We welcome all of these new members and look forward to their contributions.
Connie Laudenschlager has stepped into the Secretary's job, taking over from Pattie Boden. Connie will be responsible for keeping all of us organized and communicating, and we are very glad to have her in this position.
We welcomed the Cooks with a special party May 11th and look forward to upcoming summer activities including horse shows, "Walk and Talk" trail rides, early morning hound walking at the kennels, the Virginia Hound Show at Morven Park on May 26th, and the hunter pace in June; there is something for everybody at FHC. Come out and enjoy. (See Events).
