Blue ribbons definitely make our visits better, however this facility is enjoyable either way. We visit this venue several times a year. It is well kept, clean, and accommodating. Our family enjoys every horse show Lexington, VA hosts.

Spent three days at the Virginia Horse Center with my horse. Stalls are spacious and barns are kept clean. The arena was well-groomed and had good footing.
