Virginia Hunt Week 2018!

Tentative dates are October 13 through 28

Virginia Hunt Week takes place in alternate years.
Please check back in August 2018 for information about the next Virginia Hunt Week.


Please support our long-time sponsor, Horse Country.

The Masters of all participating Hunts have agreed not to allow capping on the day they host Virginia Hunt Week. This helps to support the event as a whole. If you're only able to attend two or three days of hunting, it's still well worth signing up!

What you get:
  • Two weeks of hunting with many different packs in the heart of Virginia!
  • An informal tailgate breakfast will follow each meet.
What you need to bring:
  • Most of the meets are part of cubhunting season and traditional ratcatcher attire is appropriate.
  • State law requires that proof of a negative Coggins test be presented at each meet for each horse present.
  • State law requires that horses transported into Virginia from other states must have a health certificate.
  • State law requires that participants carry a current Virginia hunting license while hunting. It is not the responsibility of each day's host hunt club to verify that participants obey the law by obtaining and carrying a hunting license but license fees support conservation and habitat preservation. Virginia Hunt Week organizers strongly encourage every foxhunter to purchase a license. If you live outside the state of Virginia and wish to purchase a license, you may purchase a license by phone or by mail or online, or at most Walmart stores. (You may read that you're required to pass the state-sanctioned hunter education program. That does not apply to foxhunters.)
Please return by mail:
  • Once VHW has started, no more registrations will be accepted. Sorry!
    Registration forms and waivers will be available around September 1. Please check back here to download the forms.
    Your paperwork will be processed upon receipt. Packets will be mailed to each participant after October 1.
  • Payment (personal check or money order made out to Virginia Hunt Week) should be mailed with the registration form and signed waiver. There is one fee for all Virginia Hunt Week activities.
