We are a community. Join us!
Investment in the Virginia Horse Center Foundation enriches the experience for every participant and visitor. The Foundation is a dynamic organization that supports the thrill of competition, the special partnership between horse and rider, and a vibrant community. Our competitions and educational programs promote the responsibility and leadership that shapes lives.
“Having shown all over the country, we find the Virginia Horse Center to be the most accommodating and professional facility in the United States. It’s a terrific place to come. It was built by horsemen, for horsemen. The footing is very good, the stalls are the safest you will find anywhere, and the staff is professional. It’s a great place for horse lovers.”
—Steve Meadows of Meadows Quarter Horses, Staunton, Virginia.
Help inspire new generations of horse enthusiasts, and help the VHC continue to foster safe, fair, and spirited equestrian competitions.
Events hosted by the Horse Center generate millions of dollars for our local and state economies including agribusiness. They contribute to the physical agility and mental health of participants. Our educational programs teach adults and children the value of good animal husbandry, reducing the incidence of animal abuse and abandonment. The 600 acres we maintain are important in sustaining Virginia’s rural character and historical heritage.
Throughout the year, visitors enjoy the equine sport, motocross racing, dog agility, strolling the county fair, listening to music, or walking our nature trails. Not just wood, metal, and concrete, the Horse Center is a dynamic organization of people and animals that provide a place to stage the reality of passions—whether it be a passion for animals or the land we love or the existence of a vibrant economy.
Thanks to you, the Virginia Horse Center can actively continue this proud tradition. All of us on staff value your continued support and look forward to seeing you in the ring, in the stands, on grounds or in town.
It's really quite simple.
If you come to the Virginia Horse Center in any capacity, we need your support and every dollar helps!
We are very unique.
There are competition sites that are underwritten by their state, there are others owned by very wealthy individuals and other competition venues that are for profit.
Then there is the Virginia Horse Center—operated by a nonprofit foundation that heavily relies on donations to operate and thrive.
Give today to ensure we continue to help inspire new generations of horse enthusiasts and continue to foster safe, fair, and spirited equestrian competitions.
The Virginia Horse Center Belongs to You!
Gifts made to the Annual Fund make an impact every day in every area. How do they do that? Because they are used to bridge the financial gap for annual operating and program expenses as well as facility improvements.
In fact, if you have visited the Virginia Horse Center recently you may have noticed the most recent property improvements include grading and surfacing roadways, painting and refurbishing barns, buildings and warm up areas, improved footing in several rings, upgraded environmental impact procedures for waste water and manure and refreshed landscaping at the entrance. All of these projects were made possible this year by individual donors and supporters just like you.
Our sincere thanks to those generous supporters who give regularly to the Annual Fund and if you have not made a gift, please consider making one today and help to maintain a top notch facility for recreation, education, and preservation.
Should you have any questions about the Annual Fund or how to make a gift, please call us at 540-464-2953. Or email our Donor & Project Engagement Officer.
