We went here Valentine's morning hoping we might catch a horse show but wound up seeing dog competitions of all sizes on an obstacle course. We had a wonderful time.

I don't have much background in show horse events so it is interesting to stop by the Virginia Horse Center to experience something new and different. I have enjoyed stopping by here on my visits to Lexington to enjoy a different activity. The seating is extensive, so it's easy to just stop by for a quick visit.

Great place for a horse show! The only negative I can share is the only food venue is the concession stand - they were out of items all weekend and there prices were on the edge of robbery --- too high!

Subsequent to my last year's review of VHC, I'm glad to learn of all the positive changes that have occurred. Look forward to competing there in the coming months and hopefully, for years to come. What I particularly like is that it's a safer show environment for the horse than I've experienced elsewhere. Good going VHC Foundation!

I took my family to the horse center for the Rockbridge Regional Fair and Farm Show. What a waste of time. Nothing like what they advertised on their web site. Apparently the locals know that because it was like a ghost town, and you had to search around and find a single soul to ask where anything is. Finally we... More

First visit to the Virginia Horse Center. Very impressive facility. It's at a point where it is starting to show needs of maintenance. The management team must maintain the infrastructure and grounds but right now it is still really a nice facility. This equine center needs to be supported now while it is still nice.
