The Middleburg Hunt has been part of the community for more than a century. Since it was established in 1906, the Middleburg Hunt has helped define the region as the “Nation’s Horse and Hunt Capital.” On March 18th, the huntsmen gathered for their annual gala to celebrate their proud history and to honor the retirement of longtime Master of the Middleburg Hunt Hugh Robards. The event was held at the Salamander Resort & Spa and Middleburg Life was on hand to capture of few of the moments. ML
