Hunt Country History
The Trinity Episcopal Hunt Country Tour Memorial Day tradition carries back to the year 1959 as a major part of the Upperville and Middleburg event calendar.
Like the Middleburg Christmas Parade, the Upperville Colt and Horse Show, and the Piedmont Fox Hounds annual Point to Point, the Hunt Country Stable tour offers visitors from around the globe a chance to experience the charm of Hunt Country life, as well as an opportunity to experience the sight and grandeur of some of the finest equestrian facilities known to the world. For over 57 years, the keepers of thousands of acres of horse country property have graciously opened their grounds and stables to curious tourists, equine enthusiasts, and wide eyed children all charmed and enthralled by a country life of grace and beauty to which they aspire.
The tour is widely known and hailed as a weekend not to be missed by all those who experience it.
It is centered in the town of Upperville, around the beautiful campus of Trinity Episcopal Church. The town is a historic landmark in Northern Virginia just outside of Middleburg, and the historic nature of the tour reflects the town’s commitment to preservation of the country life, lands, and traditions that surround the communities of Upperville and Middleburg.
