Welcome to JHF
Joshua's Heritage Farm is a family oriented and affordable hunt seat and western pleasure equestrian facility located just outside of Williamsburg in Toano, VA. Justin and Joshua train and show American Paint and American Quarter Horses in a range of events from Halter, Showmanship, Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure, Trail, Equitation, Horsemanship, Western Riding, and Hunter Hack. Some of their accomplishments include world champions, reserve world champions, and honor roll leaders (national leaders). We invite you to take a look around the site, and please contact us with any questions you may have.
JHF knows that finding a place to ride, board, and/or train is a team effort between horse, owner, and trainer. This is why we invite you to visit us on the farm, so please make an appointment to meet with us!
Summer Camps and Scholarship
Our summer camps are a great way for your kids to get their feet wet with horses! Our campers ride twice every day (weather permitting) and learn about the various disciplines within the equestrian world. Throughout the day campers are engaged through games to learn about topics ranging from horse safety and care, to equine nutrition, farrier work, and of course riding. Each week we host 10 campers with four counselors, allowing us to provide a near two-to-one ratio for all our campers. This allows us to work closely with all the campers, and ensure they have a fun engaging experience while learning! For more information please visit the Summer Camps page on this site. Or, call us, 757-903-8572, any time to schedule a time to come visit and learn more about our programs!
Each year we offer a scholarship of at least $2,000.00 to our lesson students to help them reach their academic goals!
Why are we doing this? Because experiences like studying abroad, going to a convention, or being able to go to college are opportunities to grow and enrich the lives of our young riders. For some, these opportunities may be out of reach, so we’d like to help! Justin and I feel this is a way we can give back, and help our youth outside of the ring. While we love seeing our students succeed in the show ring, we also want to make it possible for our students to grow and learn in other areas of their lives – their passions. Passions are what make this farm possible, and we are very fortunate to share our passion of horses and showing with all of you! It would be awesome to see our students also be able to live out their life’s passion, whatever they may be. So that one day they too can make differences in the lives around them!
A portion of all students’ lessons will go towards the scholarship fund, and at the end of the year the amount will be awarded to one one of our youth. The scholarship is for all Joshua’s Heritage Farm and Watkins Show Horses students. Students must be in the weekly lesson program (contracted), and later this year complete the scholarship application. The applications will go out in November 2018, and due by January, 1 2019. As of now the scholarships will award $2,000.00 in March 2019! Our goal is to continue growing this program so that the scholarship can make a true difference in the lives of our students.
