When Ashleigh Dove entered high school at Foxcroft School in Middleburg, she discovered the upper classmen were going foxhunting and wanted to give it a try. It wasn’t until her sophomore year that she finally got the chance, and the experience set her on the path of a lifelong passion.
“I’m pretty sure I cried when they said they would let me go. I don’t know why. I was just ecstatic,” Ashleigh said.
Her first day in the field with the Middleburg Hunt was rainy and cold. Laurie Feickert, Riding Instructor at Foxcroft, thought Ashleigh might be disappointed. She was wrong.
