Fixture -- Ingleside Plantation
5546 Leedstown Rd., Oak Grove VA 22443
The fixture is located at a winery/nursery operation. The terrain is gently rolling and a combination of open fields with nursery crops and vineyards interspersed with some woods. The fixture's trails are generally very "user-friendly" and easily rideable - Ingleside is not difficult to ride over, but still has enough variety and panels for those who enjoy jumping. ALL jumps are optional, as this is not a livestock operation - there are "go-arounds" at all fences, so non-jumpers who like to ride first flight can ride at the back of the first flight without having to jump. The jumps that we do have at this fixture are approximately 3' and are mostly coops. Our hilltoppers' field is very beginner-friendly, and our hilltoppers' field masters do a great job of keeping even novice foxhunters safe. This is also a great fixture to bring your non-riding spouse. They can sample the fine Virginia wines, tour the winery, and visit the gift shop at the Ingleside Plantation Winery while you hunt! See www.ipwine.com for more information on the winery.
