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:
  • The registration form and signed waiver, printed and completed. Participating juniors should have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian or their authorized agent.

    Forms will be available around September 1. Please check back here to download the forms.
    When we receive your paperwork, we will process it but 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. Regular hunting members of the affiliated hunt clubs (Bedford County Hunt, Bull Run Hunt, Caroline Hunt, Casanova Hunt, Commonwealth Foxhounds, Deep Run Hunt, Farmington Hunt, Glenmore Hunt, Keswick Hunt, Middlebrook Hounds, Oak Ridge Fox Hunt, Old Dominion Hounds, Rappahannock Hunt, Rockbridge Hunt, Stonewall Hounds) may participate for a fee of three hundred dollars ($300) per person. Other foxhunters will pay a fee of four hundred dollars ($400) per person.
    There are reduced fees for juniors and citizens of the UK.
    A penalty for late registration will be assessed. Anyone whose registration information is postmarked after midnight on September 30 will be charged an additional fifty dollars ($50).
