Virginia Horse Center Trailer Raffle Winner to Be Drawn Tomorrow!

Written by: Emily Riden
Client: Virginia Horse Center Foundation
Release Date: 2015-12-07

Lexington, VA – Dec. 7, 2015 – Several months ago a group of dedicated horsewomen came together to take on a large task: selling 500 tickets for a raffle to raise funds for the Virginia Horse Center. Now, with all 500 tickets sold, the “VHC Equestriennes” will be drawing the grand prize winner of a brand-new horse trailer or $15,000 cash at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the Virginia Horse Center. 

All who purchased raffle tickets are invited and encouraged to attend the grand prize drawing to be held in the Appomattox Mezzanine overlooking the Horse Center’s Anderson Coliseum. 

The trailer raffle was the brainchild of VHC Equestriennes member Donna Martin of Blue Ridge Trailer Sales. Martin is one of several members of the local Virginia equestrian community who have come together to form the Equestriennes, all with the shared goal of supporting the Virginia Horse Center through fundraisers, outreach and grassroots efforts.  

“This group of women has been unbelievable,” said Ernie Oare, president of the Virginia Horse Center Foundation. “They have all really rallied behind the Horse Center over the past year, and we can’t say thank you enough to each and every one of them for everything that they have been doing. We have to give a special thanks to Donna for her leadership of this big project as well. The fruits of this group’s labor are extremely beneficial for the Horse Center, and it’s with support like this that we are able to continue to move the Horse Center forward into a very bright future.” 

The winner of the raffle will receive a brand-new 2015 Platinum Coach Bumper Pull 2 Horse Trailer provided by Blue Ridge Trailer Sales or $15,000 cash, with all net proceeds from the raffle going directly to the Virginia Horse Center.

The winner of the raffle will also be announced on the Virginia Horse Center website and Facebook page here immediately following the drawing. Learn more about the Virginia Horse Center online at
