With breathtaking views and pristine grounds, a 4,000-seat coliseum, 8 barns to accommodate 1,200 horses, 18 show rings, 2 large indoor arenas, internationally rated cross-country jumping and combined carriage driving courses, the 600-acre Virginia Horse Center in Lexington is the crown jewel of the Commonwealth’s equine industry. The internationally renowned center serves as a venue for more than 80 events a year including horse shows, rodeos, dog shows, BMX racing and the Rockbridge Regional Fair.
We had a nice time at the Virginia Horse Center, this place is huge. Not much going on today. They gave us a schedule of events. We will go back one evening when they have shows going on. We were impressed with the whole operation.
TC didn't feel like a fancy lunch today, so we went to the Waffle House and had omelets. I had a veggie omelet and TC had a chili cheese omelet. They were pretty good.
