Drinkwater Equestrian is a family owned and operated facility. It is run by Allison Drinkwater, and her husband, Phillip Drinkwater, who is also a farrier. They purchased the property in the fall of 2013. One of the many benefits of riding/boarding at Drinkwater Equestrian is that it is a completely new and up to date facility from the barn to the fences and the ring etc. Drinkwater is members of the Virginia Horse Show Association (VHSA) and the Middle Peninsula Horse Show Association (MPHSA) and will be hosting several shows for MPHSA this year dates TBA.
Although the farm is new, the owners have a significant amount of equestrian experience. Allison has ridden and shown since the age of seven and has been an instructor for the past seven years as well as running a separate boarding facility. Prior to being a barn manager, Allison obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Christopher Newport University and was also a supervisor for the Budwieser Clydesdales. Phillip has ridden and owned horses the majority of his life as well as being a full time farrier for five years. (Here is a link to his website www.drinkwaterhorseshoeing.com) We are excited to have our new facility up and running. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
Group lessons are an hour long with no more than three riders in each group. We welcome all levels of riders. Beginners start out in private lessons one on one with the instructor where they will learn all the basics of horse care which will enable them to move into a group lesson as they progress. Lesson rates are as follows:
Group on Lesson Horse-$40
Group on own horse-$35
Private on Lesson Horse-$45
Private on own horse-$40
At Drinkwater Equestrian we offer several opportunities for your children to take part in our day camps. Each camp is five days long and ranges in skill level from our entry level beginners camp to intermediate and advanced riders.
Camp – $350
We are members of the Virginia Horse Show Association (VHSA) and the Middle Peninsula Horse Show Association (MPHSA) and we hosted several shows for MPHSA at our farm this year, on July 9th and on September 6th. Dates for the 2015 season to be TBA.
