The historic horse farms and estates of Charlottesville and Central Virginia are at the center of our strong equestrian culture, and horse races in Virginia are exciting to watch. Whether you prefer steeplechase or point to point racing, the race circuits are active in Spring and Fall here. You will see that the culture of horses is at the very heart of Virginia life, providing extra purpose to the majestic estates of Albemarle County and their active equestrian community. Even non-equestrians look forward to the tailgating opportunties in order to spend cherished time at the estates for the races.

Many people know that 3 presidents have historic homes near Charlottesville (Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe). But don’t forget that the great race horse Secretariat was born in Virginia too! Because I have personally spent many years deeply involved in the equestrian business of Virginia, I would love to provide you with much other information as well, so please don’t hesitate to ask?
