Saturday evening, April 7th, brought the Orange County Hunt members to Greenhill Winery & Vineyard for their annual Barn Dance fundraiser.  Although the focus was on the fun, the work of Orange County Hunt landowners to protect open spaces for generations to come is an important part of our heritage.

A La Carte provided an impressive array of delectable items to eat, and the DJ got people out on the floor to showcase their other moves than those on horseback. ML
