Virginia anyone?
Hey! Im from central virginia. I havent seen any talk about virginia on here. I was looking for some virginians to share some tips on their favorite places to ride around here, best horse events, or just any info that would be helpful to local riders. Im kind of getting bored with the same old same old :)

Pish, there are plenty of us Virginians around! :wink:

What part of central VA? It's a pretty big state. I'm in south central, near Lynchburg.

Check the Equiery. The Equiery – News & Views

It's our regions horsey magazine. I swear I promote them so much I should be getting commission.

(I'm a Marylander. I can't convince my husband to commute to work and move to Virginia)

DA, you're up near Frederick, aren't you? Used to be quite the lovely, rural area. Not so much now, unfortunately.

I lived in southern Maryland for 17 years, and used to travel the DC-VA-MD corridors quite a bit.

I'm in Frederick but I board in Ijamsville - that's why I always ask for stuff near there. It's not very lovely in the city part but 5-10 minutes driving in any direction will get you to farmland. I live on post so its an odd mix of open green spaces and ugly buildings.

The area around Annapolis is also filled with some beautiful farmland. Just can't afford the prices for any of it!

Dancing, I didn't know you're in Frederick! I have family there.

We're planning on moving to VA within the next few years. It's absolutely gorgeous.
