Horses at Sunrise are trained with the idea that the horse always
comes first. We are systematic and methodical in their exposure
to all the phases of our sport. We like to train horses to be confident,
careful, fun and safe. All horses in training also benefit from
lessons, clinics and exposure at all the schooling shows, xc schooling
sessions and recognized events available to everyone else.
Washington & Lee Eventing Team
Sunrise is very proud to announce that the Washington & Lee
Eventing Team is based here. Located only 4 miles from Washington
& Lee campus, Sunrise offers a convenient and professional facility
to board and ride your horse. We offer lessons on our horses to
those who would like to be a part of the team but do not have a
horse of their own. We also offer regular lessons to all other team
members, and the same opportunities to ride with top dressage and
eventing riders that our regular students have.
