Glen Bolton Farm

GOLDCUP WEEKEND found members of the Piedmont Driving Club traveling the quiet gravel roads near, but NOT at, Great Meadow.  Although the Club has presented carriages at the Virginia Gold Cup in years gone by, it was rather nice to be out enjoying the fabulous weather without the noise and confusion that 40-50,000 race enthusiasts can provide!  The drive from Glen Bolton offered gentle hills, spectacular scenery and NO traffic.  Those who wished could remain on the farm, drive the manicured trails around the hay fields and pond, try out their skill on Mary’s cone course and then travel to a neighboring farm where polo is nearly always available to watch.

After the drive, all gathered for a pot luck picnic at the farm.  As always, the food was plentiful and spirits were high….just a great way to spend a beautiful day!
