  • the Virginia horse is very good place and I am only about eight years old and I did a horse show last year and it was great I started doing horse shows when I was 7 but the Virginia horse center in a very good place I do most of the hoofbeats shows and their awesome but I hope that Virginia horse center will live on and get even better but it is pretty awesome already so there's not much to upgrade.

  • Great place for dog agility. Going up and down the steps are killer!
  • I have been going to the Virginia Horse Center for since 1988 or when it almost first opened. They just had the outdoor arena and grandstand then. They have made many improvements since then. I plan on continuing to go there as long as I own and can show horses. I highly recommend anyone to go visit or show there. They keep the grounds up are good at manure removal and keeping the dust under control during dry conditions and they also keep the arenas in great shape with great footing in them. Plus many other things like security for the horses and people day and night. We feel comfortable staying in our trailer there and have always had a nice stay, the showers are kept neat and clean as well. Good clean restrooms and just a very nice place to go for shows. What more can I say a really nice facility!
  • This place is very large and kept well clean and VERY NICE SHOWS
