Charlottesville Horse Farms Begin The New Year
2012 is under way and Charlottesville horse farms are full of new beginnings. On January one all of the thoroughbreds had a birthday and turned another year older. We are one month into the 2012 horse show season. Many farms have left Virginia for warmer climates to show in Wellington or Ocalla. However many of our Virginia equestrians opt to stay home and comptete in either the Virginia winter A shows or on one of the local circuits. We were at the A show at the Barracks last week and there was no lack of entries. The race horses are conditioning for the spring races; the Virginia Steeplechase season will start in late February. Due to the mild winter, Foxhunting is continuing. And breeding farms are gearing up for the foaling season.
Some of you may be planning to begin your search for a Charlottesville horse farm or equestrian estate this year. Winter may be the right time to start looking at properties. There are a lot of attractive Virginia farms on the market right now and some are at very good prices. Often a seller may be more likely to accept a lower offer in the winter than they will in the spring or summer. They may not have been getting as many showing at this time of year so they could be motivated to try to make your offer work. In the spring market the seller may be more optomistic that they will have more showings and get a better offer. Also if you buy your Charlottesville farm now, you will be able to get settled before you get into the summer months when you would rather be riding.
This property with its acres of gorgeous land could make a stunning horse farm.
