Have you always dreamed of waking up to greet your horses in your very own stable? Discover your equestrian dream home among the Central Virginia Horse Farms for sale. From easy riding on the Blue Ridge Railway Trail to equestrian camping at James River State Park to a full array of activities at Twin Lakes State Park, you and your horses will have a plethora of activities from which to choose.
Central Virginia Horse Farms are a special breed of their own, where the culture and climate of the surrounding area is remarkably hospitable and inviting. The region enjoys four full seasons and boasts an extended foliage period, which makes for picture perfect fall riding. Imagine a cool, crisp autumn night with your equine companion as you soak in the glorious colors of the changing leaves.
While many families across the land stumble through their busy morning routine, you’ll enjoy the quiet views of a rolling piedmont hillside and the nearby tranquility of your own horse quarters. For a change of pace, why not take in a steeplechase race at Montpelier Station or Oak Ridge in Arrington? If thoroughbred or harness racing is your passion, nearby Colonial Downs is the place to be. This track carries the distinction of being America’s only one-turn mile harness racetrack. In fact, all horse interests are represented in Central Virginia, including steeplechase racing, thoroughbred racing, harness racing, polo matches, horse shows, rodeos, pony swim events, and of course, horseback riding.
One of the many outstanding qualities of the central Virginia horse farms is the thriving equestrian community, whether you are a budding novice, recreational rider, or a fierce competitor. Breathe in the comforting scent of hay and meet your neighbors at events like the Dinwiddie Heritage and Horse Festival (Petersburg), the Virginia Equine Extravaganza Horse Expo and Trade Show (Richmond), or the Fall and Spring Trail Rides at Fleetwood Community Center (Roseland). It’s all here waiting for you. Of course purchasing specialized property or land requires special knowledge which is why I created a horse property checklist for you.
