Virginia Sport Horses (VSH) specializes in selecting and training sport horses. We offer the widest selection of sport horse prospects, at the most reasonable prices, available on the East Coast.
We breed, raise, personally select and professionally train our horses. Our horses are safe, sane, and sound. Our horses range from 1-3 in temperament, have no vices, medical problems or training issues. Our horses and business has been featured in such publications as Practical Horseman, Hunter and Sport Horse and Covertside.
Since most of today's equestrians are amateur riders, VSH has tried to take some of the guess work out of selecting your next equine partner. Our horses are bred and selected for good conformation and good minds. They're athletic, easygoing,easily trainable and have a lot of personality.
We are known for our "Signature Crosses". These American Warmblood Eligible crossbreds compare favorably to Sport Horse Quality European Warmbloods and many of our broodmares are Hanoverian, Holsteiner, Dutch Warmblood and Selle Francais.
These are highly trainable, well coupled, healthy, athletic and durable horses well suited to jumping, dressage and eventing. They make excellent choices for todays Fox Hunter who also wants to work at dressage, event, or show on the off season..
VSH also breeds and maintains a wide selection of both traditional Bay with Chrome and Black with Chrome as well as Black and White Tobiano Shire and Clydesdale Sporthorses. Each fall we also import a select group of Hanoverianx Reg Canadian Sport Horses and 3/4 TBx hunter/event/fox hunting prospects.
We ride and hunt our own horses. Over the years we have matched over a thousand riders with their horses. We have worked hard to build our reputation and our horses speak for themselves. VSH alumnae can now be found at most recognized hunts across the US, as well as competing in the hunters and eventing. We offer special programs to assist our customers to ensure that their VSH horse will hunt with the most aggressive of hunts and large fields.

Begininng August 1, we have been preg checking our mares who were previously started under saddle. Those that are not in foal and a few that are in the first trimester will be put back in training for a limited period of time and listed at attractive pricing to serious purchasers. Contact Liz for a list or monitor progress on a daily basis by following Virginia Sport Horses on facebook.
9/8/14 update: 8/27-9/1/14 We pulled the following broodmares in and restarted them. They are offered for sale through 9/15/14 at the generous pricing on the website. Those that met our standards will be returned to the rotation at our normal pricing (in general our horses under saddle start at $5,500 and up for sales appt pricing). In a nutshell here are the results: Heart of Gold, Island Breeze, Classy, Maire, and An Elegant Affaire rode nicely and will return to the program. Evesham rode in the round pen, but is in need of professional ground work. Showboat was started under saddle and took to it like a fish to water...will make a nice mare. Lila tolerates a rider and walks around the round pen, is quiet and could be easily started.
