The Opening Meet marks the beginning of the formal foxhunting season. Hounds, staff and subscribers traditionally ride up Geneseo’s Main Street at 7:30 AM from the Wadsworth Homestead to the Hartford House at the north end, and off into the countryside from there. The sight of so many riders of all ages and sound of so many hooves on the pavement are stirring. (Valley Horses by Sally Fox, Livingston County News, September 18, 2014)
This is the 142nd season of the Genesee Valley Hunt.

The Genesee Valley Hunt Races is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY. The Hunt Races have been hosted here for over 120 years, and some of the finest steeplechase trainers on the eastern seaboard bring their horses here to compete for over $30,000 in prize money. Trainers, owners, and jockeys agree that the Genesee Valley Hunt Races are one of the most anticipated meets of the entire season.
