A Loudoun Moment: On The Hunt

Wednesday’s cool fall morning made for the perfect backdrop for The Loudoun Hunt’s weekly outing, at Hume Farm off of Dry Mill Road near Leesburg.

The 121-year-old sporting organization has a distinguished history, with Virginia Gov. Westmoreland Davis serving as its master of foxhounds in the early 1900s to First Lady Jackie Kennedy hunting and showing horses with the group in the 1960s.
