GET YOUR HORSE FIX: Equestrian events in the Roanoke area this weekend (Jan. 31-Feb. 1)

Mike Rosser & Besides That.

This weekend the hunters/jumpers are back in Lexington and the sun will be out for at least most of the show. And Green Hill will be hoping the rain/ice in the forecast holds off for the second in their Winter Series. And of course if you don’t do cold, there’s always the events streaming online from warmer climates.


The horse center is holding the Stonewall Country Horse Hunter/Jumper Show through Sunday. The “A” rated show will be judged by Mike Rosser and Peggy Beachy. The show will use the center’s Coliseum and the East Complex. Rosser, of Southern Pines, N.C., was awarded the North Carolina Hunter Jumper Association “Horseman of the Year” in 1998 and again in 2007.  He is now second-vice president of NCHJA. Mike has been an “R” Judge for the USEF (United States Equestrian Federation) for 25 years and is  also a judge for AQHA ( American Quarter Horse Association). He has judged many prestigious horse shows, including Devon, Wellington, Washington International and the AQHA World Show. 


The center in Salem, Va., is holding its Winter Series Fun show on Sunday. It will be judged by Richard Toms. The show will start at 11 a.m. It will begin with model (halter) classes and showmanship and go on to the riding classes, including pleasure and gymkhana (games) events.
