In its 8th decade, the tradition continues with the 82nd running of the Montpelier Hunt Races on the historic grounds of James Madison’s Montpelier. The Montpelier Hunt races feature seven exciting steeplechase horse races, two on the flat, and five over fences.
The event festivities also includes Jack Russell Terrier Races, Stick Horse Races for the kids, Tailgate Contest and Hat Contest. In addition, enjoy a walk in the paddock and watching the horses being saddled. At the end of the races, a traditional presentation is made in the Winner’s Circle below the Race Tower for the winning horse, jockey and trainer.
