Welcome to the Princess Anne Hunt (est. 1927)
Foxhunting the Historic James River Plantations
Founded in 1927 and recognized by the Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) in 1937, Princess Anne Hunt (PAH) is located in Charles City County and our Hunt Territory extends from Richmond to Williamsburg and from King William County to Suffolk.
Princess Anne Hunt is privileged to hunt the beautiful farmlands and historic plantations along the James River. We welcome visitors and if you are interested in riding with us or visiting a hunt on foot, please contact one of us.
Princess Anne Hunt meets on Wednesdays and Saturdays (Sundays during the deer hunting season) from October through March. The Hunt maintains approximately 25 “couple” (i.e. pairs) of cross-bred fox hounds with kennels and stables located on the grounds of Sherwood Forest Plantation in the heart of the Hunt’s present day territory.
On this web site, you will find information about the history of our Hunt, the beautiful and historic fixtures that we have the privilege to hunt on and an updated calendar of exciting events. Please look around this site to learn more and to explore membership opportunities.
As responsible stewards of the Hunt, the Board has unanimously voted to increase annual dues in order to make necessary improvements to our kennels, barn and the Huntsman's housing as well to keep pace with the rising cost of living. This is the first increase to dues in over seven years and every effort was made to keep the increases at a nominal level.
New members elected to PAH prior to October 1st will pay at the current dues level. After October 1st, newly elected members will pay at the following rates:
