Belmead Equestrian Club
“The Dream Of Belmead”
Belmead Equestrian Club is home to over 39 miles of manicured trails on the historic Belmead estate in Powhatan, VA. Our trails run adjacent to the James River, go through diverse forests traversing a plethora of topography changes, and skirt some of the best yielding crop fields in the South. Our trails are always available to our members through each of the four Virginia seasons. Changing topography and breathtaking views are sure to keep you on the edge of your saddle with anticipation of the next spectacular encounter. Belmead is abundant with wildlife of all sorts, agricultural plantings that are native to the region, timber stands that range from key lime trees to Virginia Pines, 180-year-old buildings, and stories of settlements that dates back to 1684. From history to mother nature, a relaxing ride through our 2265-acre sanctuary is sure to revive the body, mind and soul.
At our Outpost you will enjoy the comradery and fun of other like equestrians. Outpost services include a bathhouse and pavilion along with fresh water and electricity. Community life grows at Belmead Equestrian Club for our overnight campers as they enjoy the star filled nights of the Powhatan skies. Campers also enjoy private stalls for the comfort and security of their horses. Slated improvements at the Outpost include additional water supply, full service campsites with electric and water, newly designed and situated stalls, and a new welcome center to enhance the Belmead experience for all.
Equestrians can enjoy overnight stays on other portions of the property. The Sisters’ Houses boast 4 bedrooms each and are perfectly located between the manor house and the Legacy Barns. Your overnight stay is complemented by your horse’s comfortable relaxation of a private stall in one of our Legacy Barns. Stay tuned for the announcement of the opening of the Sisters’ Houses which are currently under renovation.
While on property, our guest can take advantage of our Club’s outdoor activities. Activities will include kayaking, canoeing, hiking, fly fishing, small mouth bass fishing, eco river tours, bird watching and 5 stand skeet shooting. Don’t miss a picnic lunch or dinner on the bank of the historic James River or at the Mill at Deep Creek. Watch our website closely for updates on the availability of these activities.
