What is your connection to fox hunting?
Stoke is an original fixture of the Orange County Hunt and continues to host the hunt each season. We believe fox hunting is a critical component of preserving Virginia's remaining open space and uniting the country community. Eleanor and Dulany are active members of both the Orange County Hunt and the Piedmont Hunt. The Piedmont Hunt was also founded by Dulany's great-great-great-grandfather, Colonel Richard Henry Dulany in 1840.
Can boarders bring their dogs?
Dogs are allowed on a case by case basis. The dog must be cat friendly to be considered
