The Casanova Hunt 2017 Fall Fun Hunter Pace Event was held at Winfall on Sunday, October 8th, with great success. The Fall Hunter Pace events are designed to be relaxed, fun rides over well marked courses judged on optimum time. This year we ran 19 teams for a total of 53 adult and junior riders from neighboring hunts.

Casanova is one of eight host hunts who participate in the Virginia Fall Hunter Pace Series. Other participating hunts are, Deep Run Hunt, Bull Run Hunt, Keswick Hunt, Warrenton Hunt, Old Dominion Hunt, Rappahannock Hunt and Farmington Hunt.

The occasional shower and mist hung around most of the morning but did not dampen the spirits of our participants. Observers couldn’t help but notice that regardless of the showers, every single rider was smiling, if not laughing, and enjoying the ride. There were many complements on how wonderful the course was. We appreciate all of the riders who came to enjoy a great day with Casanova Hunt.

After horses were put away, the competitors gathered in the tent area with friends, members and volunteers to enjoy a little Casanova Hunt hospitality.
