Piedmont Chapter


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

Piedmont schedules mounted meetings, 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, ground manners and more.



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.



OPRC 2019 National Rally 

October 19 &  November 17 


Rally report from Sue Knox, Rally Committee Chair

Our 2019 OPRC Rally was a success! We had a fantastic Day 1 on October 19th for our Trail Obstacle classes and Games. All of us got to visit with our friend Barbara Virgo while she was visiting from the UK. I'm so happy she agreed to be the Trail Judge! Even though the weather threw us a curve on Day 2 and we had to cancel, we had a surprising number of hearty souls show up for the Stable Management unmounted lesson and test. Finally, our Jumping, Pleasure and Dressage competition was completed this past weekend. The weather was less than delightful, (geez it was cold and windy) but we still had a great day of competition and fun. The show of Volunteers was incredible! I am so grateful that so many showed up to help run the show. Thank you all!



When:  Sunday, January 12 at 12:00

We'll be electing a Vice President and a Communications officer. Renew your membership for 2020 at the meeting. Professional photographer, Susan Carter (our secretary), will give a talk on equine photography. It'll be a great afternoon.
