We hold the hard work of preparing horses for their goals in high regard. Our goal is to share as much knowledge and experience possible to provide a safe and rewarding program for both horses and riders.
We have hosted local student riders and adults, as well as riders from Longwood University and Hampden Sydney College since 2002. We compete in home, local, regional, and destination horse shows as well as head-to-head scrimmages to show off our horses and hone our skills. Our experience with college riders has helped us develop a system and schedule to support priorities during the academic year for students, and help reach goals and riding milestones for everyone. For our younger riders, the knowledge of collegiate opportunities helps us share information with both riders and parents to determine the best track and investment in pre-college riding endeavors.
We have been working with friends and referrals to rehabilitate, prepare for competition, and retire riding and show horses since 2003.
Our facility is on 55 acres 10-15 minutes from Farmville and within an hour of Lynchburg to the West and Richmond to the East. We offer full board for working adults who would like to have their horses kept in shape for their rides and/or lessons. We support riders who are committed to outside trainers to keep their horses ready to go.
We look forward to hearing from you to see if we might be a match for your horse and/or rider needs.
WINTERHILLVA has a hands on approach to all programs and takes care to provide the very best for our horses. From retired racehorses to "special needs" horses who need more than a cookie cutter approach to a working horse show life, we use practical horsemanship to accomplish goals.
Our students range from tiny tots, through grade school, high school, college and beyond. We have many horses from out of state who are retired show horses, and some who stay with us for some down time or training time before returning to their owners.
Privately owned horses are supported with professional exercise or training rides built into their program to allow student riders and working adults to accomplish their academic and career goals as well as their riding goals. Horses are kept in shape, in training, and in good condition through rides, lessons, grooming, and grooming maintenance.
We try to offer free or reduced rate after school programs for local horse lovers in February and March.
Riders who meet criteria for our Central Virginia Student Rider Club can join us for fundraising and philanthropy opportunities. Fundraising helps support student rider goals with a priority on safe essential rider equipment and events that offer the opportunity to pursue their development as horsemen and ambassadors for academic minded equestrian athletes.
