2021 is our 60th Anniversary!!
Welcome to the MOC Beagles Inc. – created to connect children and their families to the rural landscape in Virginia’s northern Piedmont through the stewardship and enjoyment of hounds, horses and habitat.
MOC Beagles supports the only beagle pack in the world that is followed on horseback and chases foxes! We are located near beautiful, historic Middleburg, Virginia - the heart of horse country – with terrain comprised of rolling meadows, woods and streams, and some stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our programs encourage children and their families to take an active part in our region’s long tradition of field sports and to support volunteer projects in land and wildlife conservation.
The MOC Beagles were started in the 1961 by famed horsewoman and conservationist Eve Fout as a means to teach junior riders about foxhunting and the rural landscape. A half-century later, MOC Beagles continues to teach youngsters all about the joys of horses and hounds and about stewardship of the countryside.
Run entirely by volunteers, we are incorporated as a non-profit organization in the Commonwealth of Virginia and are a 501(c)3 tax status as a charitable group.
