For the Animal Lover

The arrival of spring brings horses and riders to Morven Park for their 2019 equestrian season debut at Spring Horse Trials! Spectators are encouraged to traverse the cross-country course, picnic on the berm overlooking the state-of-the-art arena complex, and hold their breath as they watch horse and rider navigate the showjumping obstacles. With two days of spectacular equestrian action, Horse Trials are a great way for horses and riders to kick off the competition season in Virginia — and for you to come out and enjoy the breathtaking sport of “eventing” on a beautiful spring day within Morven Park’s picturesque 1,000 acres.
