Our next event is a Judged Trail Ride, which will be held at Tea Time Farm on June 6. This is also part of a series with Glenmore, Rockbridge and Bedford Hunts. If you had a good time today, come back and see us!
Due to the constraints imposed by the COVID pandemic, we are only inviting members and landowners to the hunt this year. This is disappointing to all of the Oak Ridge Masters as well as the family at the Estate, but we feel that we must impose this restriction to keep everyone safe in these extraordinary times. We will not be hosting the usual breakfast after the hunt. Everyone is invited to bring their own refreshments to enjoy at a safe distance from others. We will provide water and soft drinks. We know you will all respect our wishes for this year. 2021 will be a renewed chance to celebrate.
Join in on the search for turkey plates while riding the fields and wooded trails along the Rockfish River & behind Wood Ridge Farm. The first 6 riders to find a turkey plate will win a turkey for Thanksgiving. All disciplines are welcome. Bring your own tailgate – no alcohol please, or buy lunch at the Brewery after the ride. Entry fee is $40 for adults, $25 for juniors.
As many of you know, Oak Ridge has had to postpone the Hunt Ball due to the COVID-19 restrictions being observed. The event has been has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 27.
