      Montpelier Hunt Races

      Experience the thrill of steeplechase horse racing at the 84th running of the Montpelier Hunt Races on the historic grounds of James Madison’s Montpelier. Montpelier Hunt Races  hosts seven horse races. Six Races are over fences and the premier race is the seventh race  run over Montpelier’s signature natural brush fences. Most races are over two miles and the horses make over two turns around the course. Viewing is available right at the rail and is exhilarating beyond belief. Watching the horses being saddled and walked in the paddock is also popular with spectators. A traditional presentation is made in the Winner’s Circle below the Race Tower for the winning horse, jockey, and trainer. Additional retail vendors kick off the holiday shopping season. Jack Russell Terrier races start the fun in the morning followed by Stick Horse races for children and a Hat Contest and Tailgating galore!
