Events at the Virginia Horse Center

There is an event for everyone at the Virginia Horse Center Foundation!  As an all-breed, all-discipline facility, every weekend offers a variety of opportunities for competitiors and spectators.  The VHCF is also host to an array of community events, farmers' markets, concerts, training clinics, industry seminars, and the Rockbridge Regional Fair & Farm Show.

  3. You can search for your event in the search window at the top right of the site.
