Old Gabe Trails



What binds horse people together is not simply a love for all things equine, but an appreciation of what they give to us.  Horses transport us to a time where only soft hoof beats broke the stillness of the woods.  They allow us to race across the land, blood singing in our veins, they let us fly.  Horses are like a secret we keep, unable to explain to the uninitiated what makes riding so special.

Unfortunately, horse lovers also know what it’s like to run out of trails, to hear from an angry neighbor about someone going across their lawn, to find a locked gate across a previously open path.  We know what it’s like to struggle to find new places to ride, and to find other’s who appreciate the precious gifts horses give us.

That is why equine communities, such as Old Gabe Trails, are so unique.  Communities that embrace horse culture, where trails are right in your back yard, give us horse lovers a home surrounded by like minded individuals.  And in Southern Virginia, where property is far less pricey than other popular, horse friendly areas, these individuals are the major land holders.

At Old Gabe Trails, not only is the riding easily accessible from your home, you’ll also discover  myriad of horse activities.  There are countless trail rides within driving distance.  The state parks are also horse friendly, Staunton River Park and Occoneechee State Park having recently redone their equine facilities.  There’s also  the Tobacco Heritage Trail, in the heart of South Boston, which welcomes riders and dog walkers alike.

So come to Southern Virginia, see for yourself how much easier riding can become.
