Saddle Up

More than a dozen Virginia estates in Middleburg and Upperville open their doors for the Hunt Country Stable Tour this Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 5. The 50th anniversary of this self-guided tour is a good excuse to escape the city and spend a day driving along beautiful, winding roads, peeking inside the area’s famous country estates. The tour includes horse stables, a winery, a track where thoroughbreds condition and train, and a 1,000-acre working farm.

If you want to extend your visit, here’s a guide to good restaurants  and shops  in charming downtown Middleburg.

For tickets ($25) call 540-592-3711 or visit www.middleburgonline.com.
