Nestled in the heart of Virginia’s Piedmont countryside in the village of the Plains, Great Meadow is a 250-acre field events center and steeplechase course operated under stewardship of the Meadow Outdoors Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of open space for community use. Great Meadow has become a valued member of the Virginia charitable and national equestrian sports communities.

Great Meadow, which hosts the Virginia Gold Cup (May) and the International Gold Cup (mid-October), attracts 35,000 spectators to the center each year for six nationally sanctioned horse races, terrier races, a tailgate contest and a Porsche sports car exhibit.
