Colonel Richard Henry Dulany (August 10, 1820 - October 31, 1906) was an American equestrian.
Richard Henry Dulany was born on August 10, 1820 in Unison, Loudoun County, Virginia. He was the son of John Peyton Dulany and Mary Ann DeButts. The Dulany family descend from the O'Dulaneys of Queen's County, Ireland, and reached America when Daniel Dulany the Elder arrived in Port Tobacco, Maryland, in 1703.
He Dulany founded the Upperville Colt & Horse Show in 1853. It is the oldest horse show in America. He also founded the Piedmont Hunt in 1840, one of the oldest foxhunting organizations in the country.
He married his cousin Rebecca Anne Dulany and they had five children: Mary, Fanny, Johnnie, Hal and Richard ("Dick"). The Dulanys resided first at Old Welbourne until it burned down in a fire in the nineteenth century. They then moved to the present Welbourne, where the descendants, now in the eighth generation, still live today.
