VIRGINIA IS FOR HORSE LOVERS
Virginia has a long history of horses and horse lovers. The carriage rides, through historical Lexington transport you back to the times of long, flowing gowns and white gloves while the Virginia Horse Center, located only 5 minutes away, satisfies the more competitive folks among us.
With over 600 acres, stabling for hundreds of horses, a cross country course, numerous rings, inside and out and conveniently located next to a saddlery and restaurants, The Virginia Horse Center is truly a gem and one we appreciate fully. Horse shows, barrel racing, rodeos, and huge draft horses straining to pull are just some of the sights you may see in this huge complex.
