Hunt Cup Day!

The Hunt Cup is such a long and enduring part of the history of Maryland, and of course, of our Green Spring and Worthington Valleys. First run in 1894, when the members of the Elkridge Fox Hunting Club challenged the members of the Green Spring Valley Hounds to a timber race, the race is one of the most difficult in the world.imageThe Maryland Hunt Cup is four miles long, with twenty two timber fences, a feature unique to America. imagePlease stop by the shop on your way north on Greenspring Avenue and say hi! We’d love to see you!
