Scarlets in Virginia

It's now the season of braided hunt horses, spotless turn-out, tally ho wagons, and outdoor blessings. In other words, it’s time for Opening Meet! Douglas Lees was a very busy photographer in Virginia recently as he attended Opening Meets for Piedmont Fox Hounds, Old Dominion Hunt, and Warrenton Hunt.

But all the hard work to get ready for such a High Holy Day is worth it. The spectacle of the day is a favorite of photographers. The first photographer that we are featuring is Douglas Lees. Mr. Lees attended three different Opening Meets in Virginia recently. 

The Piedmont Fox Hounds' 2022 Opening Meet was held at Oakley Farm near Upperville.
