Hear the echo of hunting horns and the thunder of horses' hooves as Mount Vernon pays tribute to the greatest horseman of his age, George Washington!

At this exciting event, watch a simulated fox hunt demonstration on the estate of the Father of the American foxhound. No foxes will be hurt during this demonstration. A bag containing animal scent will be taken on a course around the 12-acre field and when a hound picks up the scent, the hunt is on!

Observe a cavalry demonstration on the 12-acre field before meeting the breeds that Washington loved. Learn more about the sport of foxhunting, why Washington was known as the greatest horseman of his age, and meet Nelson, a horse similar to Washington's beloved warhorse.
