Charlottesville Virginia horse farms are located in Albemarle County horse country which has some of the most beautiful countryside in the United States. The county is home to many horse farms ranging in size from several acres to several hundred acres. There are several areas in the county which are known for their horse properties, and each has it's own character.
The Farmington Hunt Country lies to the west of Charlottesville and has a large selection of Charlottesville horse farms. It centers around Garth Road and also the Free Union area. The country is has gently rolling fields which are mostly cleared with a scattering of woods. These farms are set against views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. This side of town has farms of varying sizes. Often there are several farms adjoining each other offering plenty of land to ride across, with landowner's permission of course. One of the factors that help make these Albemarle horse farms so special is the land stewardship and pasture management, contributing to the vistas of green fields.
The Farmington Hunt Club has kennels and a club house which are located in Free Union. Farmington is a registered pack and hounds go out three days a week from October - March.
The Garth Road area is home to The Barracks, a large boarding stable which hosts a series of A horse shows in the winter. In addition, several other farms in this area host outdoor horseshows in the spring and summer, or you can easily drive to horseshows all over the state almost every week of the year. There are also several other barns to choose from if you wish to either board your horse or take lessons.
