Welcome to HMC Equestrian!
We are an equestrian facility conveniently located in Centreville, VA, specializing in hunter, jumper, and equitation lessons, as well as boarding, leasing and sales. Whether you are a first timer, a casual rider or a serious competitor on the show circuit, we have a place for you! Our mission is to promote a welcoming positive environment in which true horsemanship can grow. We believe in offering top-notch care to our equine partners as well as a high-quality education to our riders.
Neither rain nor shine will keep us from riding horses! To help our students and parents prepare for fall and winter lessons, we’ve compiled a list of helpful hints and links that will hopefully keep you comfy and safe during your lesson:
- Dressing in layers is key
- Zip-up hoodies, jackets and vests that can be removed easily keep the flow of lessons going
- Gloves with a grip are a good idea year-round
- Boot and hand warmers keep fingers and toes warm but remember to wiggle them to promote circulation (especially before dismounting)
- Insulated riding pants are very helpful
- Parents not waiting in cars will find it helpful to bring blankets or sleeping bags to stay warm
- Visit some of our favorite local stores (Dover Saddlery, Saddlery Liquidators, Middleburg Tack Exchange, and Another Turn Tack) or online stores (Smartpak, Riding Warehouse, and Stateline Tack)
