Cost

Included in admission

At this exciting event, watch a simulated fox hunt demonstration on the estate of the Father of the American foxhound! Unlike in Washington’s time, no foxes will be hurt during this demonstration. A cast of horses and riders, in full hunting attire, will demonstrate a simulated fox hunt demonstration.

Observe a cavalry demonstration on the 12-acre field before meeting the breeds that Washington loved so much. Learn about the role these animals played in the American Revolution and even meet Nelson, a horse similar to Washington’s beloved warhorse.

Tour the Linda Mars Livestock Facility, included in admission (ticket required, limited availability - enquire at the ticket window or Guest Services desk in the Ford Orientation Center), at 10:30AM, 12:30PM, and 1:30PM.

Horses & Hounds takes place rain or shine. Schedule subject to change.
