Lexington, Va. – Feb. 1, 2017 – This weekend, the Virginia Horse Center will host the second Stonewall Country Horse show of 2017. The hunter/jumper show, running from Feb. 2-5, will also feature USHJA Outreach classes on Thursday, Feb. 2nd, for exhibitors interested in bringing along their young horses to school before the summer show season begins.
The Stonewall Country Horse Show series offers Virginia and Mid-Atlantic residents an opportunity to compete in a National rated horse show environment with two indoor rings and many indoor schooling options.
The National rated Stonewall Series will feature professional and amateur divisions for both hunters and jumpers. Competitors who are trying to earn valuable equitation qualifying points will also have the opportunity to do so in the WIHS, ARIAT, and THIS National Children’s Medal classes. Many of these same classes are also qualifiers for the Amy Ylvisaker Reistrup Equitation Challenge, which is held annually at the Lexington National Horse Show in August.
With the addition of USHJA Outreach classes this year, horses and riders who are not as experienced in the show ring will also be able to compete in classes that are offered at a discount in both class fees and stabling fees.
