The Virginia Reining Horse Association (VRHA) is a nonprofit association dedicated to promoting and encouraging the development of and public interest in the sport of reining. The focus is on developing and maintaining suitable standards of performance and judging and in providing a fun filled, family-oriented atmosphere.
We are very excited to announce the move of this exceptional event to the Virginia Horse Center Located in Lexington, VA! The VRHA board of directors and the show committee have spent a great deal of time working to grow the Mid Atlantic Classic! Couple that with The Virginia Horse Center revitalizing and upgrading their facility and the result is a premiere show complex that we know everyone will enjoy! So make plans to attend one of the largest horse shows on the East Coast with over $100,000 in prize money! Enjoy the beauty of Lexington and take advantage of over 14 hotels, extensive restaurant choices and a 600 acre facility right at your finger tips.
