Middleburg Horse Trials

June 11-12, 2022

Join us for our annual USEF/USEA Horse Trials at Great Meadow Foundation in The Plains, Virginia.

Volunteer

Help make The Middleburg Horse Trials possible through the generous donation of your time.

You want to be the best rider you can be.

For the horse crazy kid, this means having an early opportunity to learn safe handling, riding, and sportsmanship from equestrian experts.

That's exactly why Pony Club was created!

As equestrians ourselves, we know how important foundational knowledge is to the success of any rider. We also craved an environment where we could practice proper horsemanship, be surrounded by supportive friends, and most importantly, have fun!

So we formed the Middleburg Orange County chapter of Pony Club to give young horse lovers of Northern Virginia like you access to the same tried and true approach that worked for us when we were kids!

What's so awesome about riding with us?

Being a member of MOC gave me the opportunity to try different sports. I became obsessed with Polocrosse. I use Pony Club to have better riding skills to become a better player and learn how to take care of my horse as I ask more from him.
