Legacy Mustang Preservation in Scottsville VA

Wild horses in Scottsville? Most people aren’t aware of the American Mustang sanctuary in Scottsville, VA, which is a short country drive from Charlottesville.

With a 250-acre sanctuary, Legacy Mustang Preservation is on a mission to provide a nurturing environment for the American Mustang. Their efforts promote the understanding, appreciation, and adoption of the unique American breed and promotes specialized training that focuses on the needs of the wild horse.

Located just over the James river in the scenic Albemarle/Fluvanna countryside, and less than a 10-minute drive from Chester Bed & Breakfast, the preservation can be visited and frequently hosts promotional events at the sanctuary.

Coming up soon in September is their Hoofing it with the Herd 5k Walk & Run. Which will take place on the beautiful 250-acre preservation and is a family friendly event, after the race there will be food, music, and a “meet the mustangs tour”!

They also host a yearly Mustangs Helping Mustangs car show benefit at the sanctuary that promotes the love of both Wheeled and Hooved Mustangs!

Support of the preservation can also be found in donations and volunteering,  and promotional events are frequently held at Scottsville businesses, such as a recent Community Tap Night hosted by the local James River Brewery.

Albemarle county is known for its love of horses and the sanctuary embodies this love of riding and caring for our equine friends. During your next stay at Chester Bed & Breakfast don’t miss a visit to this hidden gem of Albemarle, or many of the other local businesses in beautiful Scottsville!
