The Virginia Horse Trials will host three Starter Horse Trials and Cross-Country Schooling Days throughout the course of the year. On Saturday, the cross-country course will be open for schooling, and on Sunday the Virginia Horse Trials will host a Starter Horse Trials, with levels ranging from Green to Preliminary. This year we are also excited to offer the opportunity to work with clinician Mark Combs during the cross-country schooling on Saturday.
Presenting sponsor Blue Ridge Equine Clinic is giving embroidered quilted saddle pads to the winners of each horse trials division and providing a hospitality tent with beverages and snacks. Blue Ridge Equine Clinic has been a longtime supporter of the Virginia Horse Trials, and we are grateful for their support of both the USEA Horse Trials and unrecognized Starter Trials.
“Blue Ridge Equine Clinic is proud of its long history of collaboration with the Virginia Horse Center and the Virginia Horse Trials. We are always excited to participate in the horse trials each year,” said Dr. Donovan Dagner, BREC President. “This year we are looking forward to an increasing role in the expansion of the Virginia Starter Trials and their new ties to the War Horse Event Series at the Carolina Horse Park. The War Horse Event Series is a great community event in support of noble and worthy causes.”
All three 2017 VHT Starter Trials will be considered qualifiers for the $20,000 War Horse Event Series Championship taking place at the Carolina Horse Park November 11-12, 2017. Please click here for more information on how to qualify.
