Stonewall Country Horse Show celebrates 25 years at Virginia Horse Center

HM009
The Stonewall Country Horse Show is a USEF A-rated hunter jumper competition.

The Stonewall Country Horse Show will kick off its 25th year  this weekend at the Virginia Horse Center. The event offers two hunter/jumper shows that benefit the Virginia Horse Center Foundation Jan. 19-22 and Feb. 3-5. This year, the Stonewall Country series will also feature USHJA Outreach classes for exhibitors interested in bringing along their young horses to school before the summer show season begins.

The Stonewall Country Horse Show series offers Virginia and Mid-Atlantic residents an opportunity to compete in a National rated horse show environment with two indoor rings and many indoor schooling options. A complete schedule and list of classes is available here.

The Stonewall Series will feature professional and amateur divisions for both hunters and jumpers. Competitors who are trying to earn valuable equitation qualifying points will also have the opportunity to do so in the WIHS, ARIAT, and THIS National Children’s Medal classes. Many of these same classes are also qualifiers for the Amy Ylvisaker Reistrup Equitation Challenge, which is held annually at the Lexington National Horse Show in August.

With the addition of USHJA Outreach classes this year, horses and riders who are not as experienced in the show ring will also be able to compete in classes that are offered at a discount in both class fees and stabling fees.
