Hit the Trail

When is the last time you took your horse on a trail ride? The Carolinas are home to an astonishing variety of terrain, ranging from winding mountain tracks to sandy gallops through the surf. There are many miles of glorious riding paths to enjoy, and riding out has benefits far beyond taking in the scenery. Trail riding can sharpen your skills, build partnership with your mount and improve both your own and your horse’s mental and physical health.

Here is a quick survey of some of the best places in the Carolinas for horseback riders to visit.
