The Warrenton Horse Show

OUR MISSION:

WHY WE STARTED:
108 years ago, Warrenton, Virginia, was the epicenter of the breeding and show hunter world in North America. In 1899, a small local group of well known horsemen envisioned a culturally important park where the exhibition of the best show bloodstock and finest horse athletes of the day would be enjoyed by spectators coming from near and far.

WHO WE ARE:
Today, the Warrenton Horse Show Association is the oldest continuously operating corporation in the Commonwealth of Virginia, a "for profit" community-based organization that represents the interests of horse show enthusiasts, competitors, horse breeders and the community of Warrenton, Virginia.

WHAT WE DO:
Maintain and uphold the important 108-year-old tradition of the Warrenton Horse Show, a national monument to horse showing and horse breeding and the people who made it famous.

Provide a valuable park-like setting providing a historic open air facility for outdoor events.

Facilitate community interest groups and charitable organizations for "year-round" opportunities in a historic and culturally important setting.

OUR ROLE:
Virginia is home to close to 200,000 horses and is the fifth largest equine state in the United States. Overall, the industry adds more than $1.2 billion to Virginia's economy.

WHAT WE DO FOR BUSINESS:
Facilitate unmatched marketing opportunities in an expanding community with powerful demographics.

Generate revenue streams into the local and state economy annually.
