Welcome to Montpelier

Montpelier, the home of James and Dolly Madison, has a new attraction for the thousands of tourists who visit each year. A 200-acre portion of the estate is home to a Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation Farm run by Kim Wilkins.

The first TRF horses arrived at Montpelier in the fall of 2003. The equine residents include Correggio, the 1996 Eclipse Award winner as the nation's outstanding jumper.

"For much of the 20th century, under the stewardship of Marion duPont Scott (Montpelier's last private owner), Montpelier was one of the nation's premier equestrian centers," said Michael C. Quinn, former President of the Montpelier Foundation. "In partnership with the TRF, we are proud that Montpelier will continue to be a showcase for America's race horses."
