Est. 2013

 

Simmons Sport Horses, established in 2013, provides equine boarding, lessons, and a training facility for all disciplines.

 

Simmons Sport Horses is located in Mount Solon, VA. Exercise your horse with ample pastures to trail ride or challenge your horse with jumps in the 125' x 250' arena while enjoying the scenic views. After a full day of exercise or taking leisurely pasture rides, board your horse in one of our roomy full-care stalls or pastures with run-in shelters. Various options are available for all boarders; however, our staff is flexible and willing to work with specific needs and requests.

 

Approximately 9 miles from the campus of Bridgewater College and 15 miles from James Madison University, we are a perfect location for college students to board and ride throughout the year. Because of its warm and friendly atmosphere, Simmons Sport Horses has quickly become a favorite boarding facility for not only college students, but for locals as well.

 

Thank you for visiting Simmons Sport Horses. We look forward to riding with you soon!
