Piedmont Chapter


It's not about the ribbons or glory......,
                                     it's all about the memories

We schedule mounted lessons, weather permitting, on the second Sunday of each month. Winter sessions are typically held in an indoor arena. Lessons include dressage, ground poles, jumping, obstacles, and more.

We also have a musical ride (like a very, very informal quadrille) on the last Saturday of each month.



Save the Date 2020 

Postponed until Fall.

Dates to be announced.

One of our most popular activities is Summer Camp. Summer Camp, which began in 2006, is held over a three-day weekend at a horsey bed-and-breakfast farm near Staunton.

Scott is located near Fredericksburg and his website is https://www.advantagehorsemanship.com/  We held a very fun clinic with Scott last year. He is willing to work with you and your horse on a variety of issues, from groundwork to under saddle.
