Explore our equestrian side

If horses are your love, they are always your love. In Loudoun County, they’ve been our love for a long time. In fact, there are more horses here than in any other county in Virginia, which is why many Olympic riders live and train here.  So while you’re here visiting, get adventurous with a horseback ride through some of the best trails in the Washington DC area. Learn how to play polo (no experience required) at one of the most scenic facilities in the Washington DC area. Or, sit back and watch equestrian events like Steeplechase races and the oldest horse show in the country – The Upperville Colt and Horse Show.
