Spent two nights there watching the Lone Star Rodeo. Found the staff there to be very friendly. Make sure to grab something to eat prior to going though.. Their food prices are a bit high for what you get

Blue ribbons definitely make our visits better, however this facility is enjoyable either way. We visit this venue several times a year. It is well kept, clean, and accommodating. Our family enjoys every horse show Lexington, VA hosts.

Now that the center is privately owned, I've noticed that it has definitely gone downhill in upkeep. This used to be a beautifully maintained property, with an arena that was air conditioned or well-fanned. It's so hot in there now, and it's just not what...More
