The Virginia Horse Council and Partners will host a historical trail ride at Brandy Station Battlefield on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023. The Battlefield, located in Culpeper County, is the site of the largest Civil War Cavalry Battle in the United States. Riders will travel in small groups on marked trails. Several Civil War reenactors and guides will share battle highlights at significant battlefield sites throughout the property. Pre-registration is required. For more information and registration, go to https://virginiahorsecouncil.org or History Ride at Brandy Station Battlefield | Virginia Horse Council More information if needed: Brandy Station Battlefield encompasses over 1,000 acres of preserved land, currently owned and protected by the American Battlefield Trust and slated to become part of Virginia's park system in 2024. The Battle of Brandy Station on June 9, 1863 involved 20,000 mounted Union and Confederate troops. Today, much of the land remains pristine and the same as it was in 1863 – 160 years ago. Given the large acreage, horseback is an ideal way to experience the Battlefield. Seven miles of trails meander through open fields, woodlands, hills and vistas and historic sites. Trail riders will have the option of riding a short, 1-to-2-hour ride, or a longer trail ride throughout the property with reenactors and guides stationed at significant battle highlights. This is not a led trail ride; riders will go in small groups at a slow pace along marked trails through gentle rolling terrain and mostly natural surface trails. Pre-registration is required, and lunch is included. Visit: https://virginiahorsecouncil.org
