The Genesee Valley Hunt sponsors a variety of horse-related activities, listed below, many of which are long-standing traditions in the Genesee Valley. Click on the links below for more information on each of these activities.
The GVH Whiskey Race
In the early 1960's, what is now called the Whiskey Race, and was then called the Bacchus Relay, was a hotly contested annual event. Held on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at 11am - Little & Nations Rd - Geneseo, NY , teams of three race in a relay format against other teams over a jumping course carrying a flask which must be emptied through consumption before the last team member crosses the finish line. Held before the start of a regular hunt, tradition has it that the winning team does not receive their trophy unless they are all able to stay out until the hunt is completed.
