Vermillion Valley Equine Center is located between Topeka and Manhattan just off of Highway 24 in the rolling hills of Belvue, KS. Our facility features 2 large arenas with sand footing on a limestone base, a round pen and a 10 acre cross country schooling field. Additionally, the rural setting offers endless fields and quiet gravel roads for conditioning outside the arena.
Our peaceful, friendly setting is one of the most cherished aspects of the VVEC experience. We believe in working hard, riding hard, and playing hard!
Ann and her staff allow riders to excel with their horses through building horsemanship skills and enjoying time in saddle. We offer lessons for children and adults of all levels and abilities, and have several safe school horses and ponies suitable for any equestrian hopeful!
