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

May 2017

The Farmington Hunt Club held its Annual Meeting on April 19th, with a large group of enthusiastic members in attendance. The President, Treasurer, each of the six Committee Chairpersons and the Masters, all gave detailed reports of the club activities during the preceding twelve months. The Horse Activity, Special Events and Communications Committees all had excellent results, providing the club with great enjoyment, much needed funds and valuable public relations exposure.

The previous slate of officers was re-elected and we welcomed our new Board Members(see “Who’s Who” for FHC staff, executive committee and board members) Congratulations to our deserving award winners: Stephen Bickers…Julian Beckwith Award, Emma Biddle…Jill Summers Award and Jennifer Campbell…Kim Morton “Spirit” Award.

Looking at the upcoming Social and Horse Activity calendar, it is amazing to see how many, high quality, enjoyable events that Farmington Hunt is putting on, just in the next two months alone. For example: The FHC/VHSA Jumper Equitation Show at the Durbin Farm, FHC/Farmington Beagles Puppy Show at the kennels, MFHA Virginia Hound Show at Morven Park, FHC Spring Show at Brookhill Farm, FHC Hunter Pace at Mint Meadows, FHC Jumper Show at Schelford Farm, FHC Fun Show at Millington and FHC Jumper Show at Millington. In addition, the popular Walk and Talk Series begins in mid May. There is truly something for everyone here. Come participate, tell your friends and please consider volunteering at one or more of the events.  Have a great summer, and don’t forget….only 100 days until hunting season begins.

 Check events calendar for up to date scheduling, and see news for all event reports, results and photos.

As we look forward to summer horse and social activities, we wish you the best for 2017!

Mark Thompson, President
