The Stables at Camargo

In 2020, we started our restoration of the stables to its former glory. The stables are situated in the heart of Indian Hill, a community founded by individuals with a love of horses. We have 27 acres of wonderful farm land. Our facility has twelve grass pastures, a large outdoor arena, an indoor with the most premier footing, 32 recently renovated stalls, 6 oversized stalls with run in limestone paddocks, and 4 all-purpose turnouts so your horse can get out in enclimenting weather. Connected to property is direct access to the wonderful Indian Hill bridle trails. The trails consist of seventy-five miles of national trails for your enjoyment. This amazing property is ever evolving and improving. We are excited for you and your horse to experience our premier faculty and care!

{The Stables at Camargo is an incredible addition to the equestrian community of Cincinnati.  Patrick Graves is a barn manager who is truly a horse whisperer as well.  He has an intuitive grasp of what horses need as well as what would make life better for their owners.  Brian McNabb, DVM, is a well established veterinarian known both in Cincinnati and in Wellington, Florida.  In truth, after 55 years of riding or owning horses, I would stable my horse with no one else.

Why Tweeds?

Like so many foxhunting traditions, tweed jackets have their roots in practicality, functionality, and of course, high fashion.

The early 1800’s brought the British aristocracy to the heart of the Scottish countryside, where “tweel” fabric had been artfully crafted from wool for generations as the staple warm, weather resistant outerwear. 
The wildly popular trend for wealthy socialites of the time was to rent a Scottish country estate for elaborate events revolving around hunting sports.
In the spirit of high society, each highland estate subsequently created their own distinct pattern- now mistakenly called “tweed” by the new out-of-town tenants.

While the foxhunting itself had not changed much during this time, it was now imperative to be distinguished from your new neighbor during a fast paced run and a signature tweed pattern was just the answer. 

Prince Albert fueled the existing trend with the creation of the Balmoral Tweed after purchasing Balmoral Castle estate of Scotland in 1848. It is said he created the tweed before the foundation for the castle was laid. 

In America of later centuries, it was common for farmers to join the local hunts for the informal season- which was not open to all formal riding members. The farmers would attend in their work jackets, often fashioned from a durable tweed.

The tweed hacking jacket is a foxhunting tradition to this day, being worn during our informal or “cubbing” season. For Camargo Hunt, this begins 9/6, and ends 10/9 ,which marks the first day of formal hunting with the Blessing of the hounds.

Happy Hunting!
