Dedicated to the establishment of public riding facilities on Fairfax County parkland.

We work with the Fairfax County Park Authority, the equestrian community, private organizations, and others to establish riding facilities at which residents can take lessons and board horses.

hoovesOur featured speaker at the 2019 Annual Meeting was Matt Evans, a farrier who discussed how to maintain hoof health. Matt, owner of Steelworks Inc., which is located in Lorton, emphasized the importance of keeping hooves clean (he recommends a wire brush and Oxyclean). He said that nutrition is a key component in hoof health, and noted that being overweight puts a strain on a horse’s feet. Matt touched upon many other topics in this enjoyable and informative presentation.
