The Farmington Hunt kennels and clubhouse are located in northwestern Albemarle County near Free Union. Our territory encompasses the rolling hills and fields at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we have followed hounds since 1929, and 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.


President Message Heading

November 2015 

 The excitement of November and Opening Hunt was subdued this year by the loss of our beloved Master Carol Easter. Carol was not only a wonderful Master and leader but one of the kindest people any of us will ever know. No situation was ever so tense or stressful that her wonderful smile and cool demeanor could not bring everyone to quiet consideration. While her legacy in organized hunting and the Virginia Trail Riders will live on, her greatest legacy is through her wonderful family and their contributions to all. She is greatly missed.
Our hunter pace was again a wonderful day and success for all. The course was beautifully laid out by Matthew and Julie and the whole event was expertly run by Kip Holloway and Carolyn Chapman. Thanks to all.
The Membership Survey results will be reported to our members in monthly installments(in Fox Tracks) starting next month. We go into Thanksgiving with much to be thankful for; our beautiful countryside, an ever improving pack of hounds, good hunting, giving landowners, an excellent staff and Masters and a wonderful membership.

Good hunting.
