The Middleburg Horse Trials announced it will change venues to run at the Great Meadow Field Events Center in The Plains, Virginia, for 2018. The Middleburg Horse Trials is organized by Middleburg Orange County Pony Club as a fundraiser for its club.
The Middleburg Horse Trials will be held June 9- 10. Previously the event was held at Glenwood Park.
“We are so excited to be moving the Middleburg Horse Trials to Great Meadow,” said MOCPC organizer Max Corcoran. “With the purchase of new land by The Great Meadow Foundation, it has opened up the opportunity to have another horse trial in addition to Great Meadow International. It is a top-notch facility that is very historic and special to the equestrian community.”
Course designer David O’Connor and MOCPC course builder John Wells will build courses on the Fleming Farm parcel of the Great Meadow property. Middleburg Horse Trials will run beginner novice, novice, training and preliminary.
Show Jumping will take place in the arena with adjacent warm-up arena. Dressage will run on established turf.
