Frequently Asked Questions

Where should I start the tour? 
Trinity Episcopal Church on the John Mosby Hwy in Upperville is the logical place to start, particularly if you have never been on the tour. Since the tour began, church members have talked to the public about best routes, and favorite places to visit. They have short cuts, helpful tips, and places to see. If you come at 9am on Saturday you also get a selfie moment and a cup of coffee with the Piedmont Hounds! But remember. You can start the tour at any stop. Stewards will check you in and help you plan your day! If you are an early bird, don't forget that the Middleburg Training Center opens at 7am so you can watch Thoroughbreds in action!

Can I buy tickets the day of the tour?
Yes. You can purchase tickets at any stop. The only card machine for digital ticket sales however is at Trinity Church. Cash or check is accepted at all stops.

What should I wear?
It is usually a very warm sunny day. Visitors wear hats and shorts and skirt and casual shoes. Our barns are pristine and clean. No mud or boots are in sight!  

Is my ticket good for both days?

Is the ticket for a car load or per person?
It is per person. We will have group rates for 10 or more. Remember, children 10 and under are free.

Who benefits from the money raised by the tour?
All funds raised by the stable tour are given to outreach. Our outreach committee at Trinity uses this money to support missions and the greater good both in local, regional and world causes. 

Can I bring my dog?
No, unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the tour.

Where should I eat lunch?
Our picnic site this year is at Trinity Episcopal Church. Rocklands Real Barbeque will have a food truck and offer adult and children's choices. Picnic tables, church tours, wildlife displays, lemonade, and a visiting sculpture artist will all be a part of the festivities. Our church is in the center of the farms and events, so plan on stopping by for a visit. Our recommendation is to stop by for a real barbeque lunch, take a tour of the church, and enjoy the courtyard activities! Also, on Sunday at lunch the Cathedral Brass will have an outdoor concert free during lunch hour. Enjoy a spectacular Memorial Day concert in beautiful Hunt Country while you dine in celebration of our 60th anniversary!

The Upperville Baptist Church offers a Drive Through Hot Dog Lunch. No need to pre-order! Drive through and have a hot dog picnic at our farms!
