The Laurel Hill Equestrian Center is a unique public/private funding venture between Fairfax County Parks and local horse groups. It stands in the shadow of the old dairy barn at Lorton Reformatory, but holds nothing but promise for a bright future. The ring and parking are the first phase of a new facility that will serve equestrians (now open!).
The plan to develop the full facility continues, which will eventually include a 60-stall barn for lesson horses. The barn will be attached to a large indoor arena to accommodate lessons and activities year-round. In addition, long-range goals include outdoor arenas, a round pen, turn-out paddocks, fenced fields, and trails.
