Exploring Virginia...One Trail at a Time

Members ready to head out on the trails at Staunton River State Park in November 2017

Welcome to the Virginia Paint Horse Club Trails page!  We welcome all riding disciplines at our trail rides.  We love to see paint horses, but welcome other breeds as well.  We encourage membership at our trail rides with non-member fees including membership to our club (it's an insurance policy requirement, please understand).  Our goal this year is to have at least 3 club trail rides at different locations across the state.  Read below for our upcoming trail rides.

As part of the spring trail ride, VPHC will take part in a work day at Staunton River State Park on Friday, March 29 at 10am. We may move it to Saturday, March 30 depending on the weather and how many are able to make Friday. Possible a little work both days!!  The park sustained a lot of damage to their trails during flooding in the fall. Most trails should be open by our late March ride dates. We will be assisting with trail cleanup where needed and trimming high limbs.  More info will be posted as it gets closer.
