Facility Updates


The cross-country course has seen some major improvements thanks to the work of Tyson Rementer.  

Rementer said, “We had a wildly productive visit to the VHC in January. We knocked off several great new upgrades along with course designer Jay Hambly and my building partner Levi Ryckewaert.”

Rementer shared the details about the cross-country improvements: “For starters, the water jumps on both the Oak Hill course and Horse Center courses were modernized with new shapes, liners and footing as well as expanded in size.

“We did lots of clearing on the Horse Center course to access some interesting new areas. We also removed some old aging complexes, filled some rocky areas, and leveled ground to create better flow for all the levels. We updated one of the old bank complexes for the Training and Modified course.

“On the Oak Hill course, in addition to the new water complex, we cleared many old, overgrown areas to develop significant new lines and help the courses utilize less hilly areas. In the clearing we found a neat old bridge and we were able to renovate it for what will be a pretty dramatic new feature to the course. We used some excess fill from the water jump renovation to fill lumpy areas so that the courses of all levels can have improved flow and even better galloping.

We also built a new ditch complex so the upper-level courses could try their hand at a new coffin-style fence. We can’t wait for everyone to check out the new updates!”

Stall Update
