GET YOUR HORSE FIX: Events happening near Roanoke this weekend (Nov. 1-2)

As we fall back this weekend for daylight savings, the shorter days have many a rider wishing for the return of warmer weather and more sunshine. But it’s not time to hibernate quite yet, there are still equestrian events in and around the Roanoke Valley this weekend.


The horse center is hosting the Virginia Horse Trials this weekend from Friday, October 31 through Sunday, Nov. 2. The Virginia Horse Trials, which is an abbreviated version of a three-day eventing competition, draws several hundred eventing riders from around the country.


The Cross View Farm Open Show will be held Saturday and Sunday at 9 a.m. (See a show flyer.) The show includes English, Western and Gaited classes plus Game classes beginning at 1 p.m.
