Cobbler Hunt Diaries, 1932-1935
Patton was an avid lifelong equestrian who finished sixth in the modern pentathlon equestrian events in the 1912 Summer Olympics. While executive officer of the 3d Cavalry Regiment at Fort Meyer, Arlington, Virginia, in the 1930s, Patton and his wife Beatrice joined the Cobbler Hunt in Fauquier County, Virginia. Diaries kept by Patton as the master of foxhounds record the 1932-1935 foxhunting seasons in which military and civilian riders participated.
