Certified Residency Program

The Virginia Standardbred Certified Residency program is available starting with foals born in 2019. A copy of the program rules and requirements can be found by clicking here.

A registration form for each horse that will participate in the program must be submitted prior to the horse beginning the residency program. This form is found by clicking here.

Several farms have indicated that they have space available for horses participating in the program. The complete list can be found by clicking here. Information will be added to this list as we receive it from the facilities. Horses do not have to be kept at one of these farms to be eligible. You may keep your horse anywhere in Virginia.

At the completion of the six month stay, Farms are required to submit the Residency Verification form which can be found here.

If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Warnick at info@vhha.net or by phone at 443-463-0917.
