James River Horse Foundation's Stag Creek Derby
August 28, 2022
On August 28, ponies will race down Stag Creek in Ashland to raise much needed funds for the James River Horse Foundation.
This fun event is a great way to get involved with this important foundation. All proceeds go to support the care of our herd of retired racehorses and the educational program for the incarcerated women who care for them.
A $15 donation enters your “pony” in the Derby. Entries close at 10am the day of the race.
You've missed these events already, but keep an eye out for upcoming events! Many of these are annual occurrences!
