Horse Leasing and Showing in the Richmond Area
Lesson students at Haverhill Equestrian have the opportunity to lease school horses, which can provide riders with the opportunity to have an extra ride each week. Additionally, the responsibilities of leasing allow students to “test” horse ownership, as a rider “owns” the horse for a day and is responsible for preparing the horse and making arrangements for supervision.

Haverhill participates in and hosts various VHSA shows throughout the year. Showing can be a fun and important part of riding as it helps a rider set and achieve personal goals.

Talk to your trainer if you are interested in participating in going to a show.
Horseshowing teaches responsibility, horsemanship, sportsmanship, and gives a rider the opportunity to show what he or she has learned. We always have a great time at horse shows whether they are at our farm or away.
