Travel With Horses Series: Wilderness Run Vineyards Equestrian Center

This is the beginning of our Travel with Horses blog posts!

Some folks enjoy traveling to foreign lands by plane, while others prefer cruising along the Mediterranean. As for me, I delight in discovering secret horse havens, filled with lots of magical trail riding – bring your horse or use theirs. I love spending weekends visiting new places accompanied by my equestrian friends.

Today, I want to introduce you to a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the Virginia countryside – Wilderness Run Vineyards Equestrian Center also known as WRV Equestrian Center.

Trail Horses and Swim Horseback

I saw this post by a woman in a Facebook group! It was all about this super cool group that went trail riding, splashed around with the horses in the lake, and then treated themselves to some heavenly wine at the on-site winery. I mean, talk about a dream day out!

Naturally, I was so pumped to check it out that I took a screen shot of the post. Little did I know, my screen shot collection is like a hidden treasure hunt waiting to happen! Fast forward four months later, and I’m still scratching my head trying to locate that darn photo.

But fear not, my friend! This is exactly why I decided to create this website. I mean, I don’t know about you, but my scatterbrained moments are endless, and I needed a way to bookmark all these awesome spots before they slip through my fingers. So now, not only will I have a fabulous resource at my fingertips, ( and so will you) but I’ll also never have to suffer through the agony of losing a hidden gem again!

They are guided trail rides and offer gracious assistance for all levels of riding.
