May 8, 2011, 10 to 5 pm: Coaching Day at Stratford Hall

“In eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America and England, the only scheduled overland transportation was via public road coach. The Lees would have owned their own coaches and had many guests arrive in coaches in front of the Great House. The advent of the automobile and railroad virtually ended this form of transportation, and so the sport of coaching was born. Today, only a handful of people preserve the unique art of handling a coach drawn by a team of horses. This year’s event will feature traditional 4-in-hand coaches as well as various other types of horse-drawn carriages. Stratford Hall’s coaching event is among the most established in America.”


April 3, 2011, 3 to 5 pm: Opening of the exhibit, “Faces at the Races” at the Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center:

“In celebration of the Virginia tradition of horse racing, the Museum is proud to host Faces at the Races: The Equine Culture of Virginia, on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. Through classical black and white portraiture, the exhibit documents the people and institutions that truly represent Horse Culture in Virginia. Images in this exhibition represent owners, riders, trainers, audience members, and others from events such as the Middleburg Spring Horse Show, The Montpelier Point-to-Point, and The Upperville Colt and Horse Show, which is the oldest horse show in the United States.”
