Today is December 29. The middle of winter in most parts of the country. In Charlottesville we were treated to sunshine and highs in the mid 50's. This follows two days of highs in the 60's. Perfect riding weather! And the perfect reason to own a farm in Charlottesville and Central Virginia.
I am not saying that this is the norm for winter weather in Virginia, but we do get some of everything. We can get several weeks at a time of cold wintery weather with snow and ice. However, we will also often get a little break with weather in the 50's as well. You can usually keep horses in work outside throughout the winter with only a few days missed due to weather conditions that make it impossible to ride. When people first come to Virginia to shop for a farm, one of the first things that they remark on is the fact that very few of the farms have indoor arenas. While an indoor is definately a plus it is by no means a necessity if you want to keep riding throughout the winter.
Visit Charlottesville, Virginia and Albemarle County to see some of the most beautiful horse farms on the east coast and enjoy the moderate climate with four distinct seasons… but don't tell that sometimes we get little glimpses of spring in the winter time.
