Montpelier Hunt Races

It was an overcast, dreary day for this year’s Montpelier Hunt Races held at the home of James and Dolley Madison in Montpelier Station, Va, but the racing was good. The horses race past the mansion and some try to jump the mulch covered road.Montpelier_Mansion_Races

They held the dirt race for the first time in a few years. Pride of the Fleet won.
