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.

cold inside but roomie with great food. Great agility courses on dirt floor - but all those stairs were a DOWNER.

The Virginia Horse Center was designed by people who understand horse shows. The barns, show rings, parking, campsites, grazing areas and pathways between all the above are comfortable and convenient on foot and on horseback, even when hosting a large national level horse show. The natural beauty of the surroundings and views, especially from the dressage rings up on the... More

On the plus side, VHC has wonderfully sized stalls, bathrooms with showers, several arenas with better than average footing. Though I didn't partake, I was happy to discover a different food vendor with some healthy choices. this is an improvement over the solitary array of fried foods as in the past. However, I couldn't help but notice how much in... More
