Held in the heart of Montgomery County's horse country, the Potomac Hunt Races is an annual tradition, celebrating the sport of steeplechase racing. Amidst the thrill of thundering hooves and soaring horses, race day festivities include a car display, mounted police demonstrations, a moon bounce, pony rides, and vendor row. Enjoy the camaraderie of friends and colleagues, the beauty of nature, and the majesty of the equine athletes — all within the pristine rolling fields of the Kiplinger estate in Poolesville, Maryland.

For optimum tailgating, railside passes must be purchased in advance. The Potomac Hunt also offers sponsorship tents for companies wishing to entertain clients and/or employees.

The purchase of a wristband for the Kid Zone allows your child unlimited access to pony rides, airbrush tattoos, and the moon bounce.

Once you're here, sit back, relax, and enjoy the adrenalin rush of the racing horses!
