Equine enthusiasts will feel right at home in the High Country, as the area is a horse lover’s paradise. Filled with backcountry NC horseback riding trails and secluded paths that lead to phenomenal views, you’ll love all of the beautiful scenery that you can ride through. There are several stable companies and farms in the region that offer horse boarding on site, as well as lessons and even private, guided horseback riding tours if you do not currently own your own horse. Many of the spots offering horseback riding in NC are located on private lands near the stables, be sure to contact them to learn more about these places.
Perhaps the best public NC horseback riding in the Blue Ridge Mountains is just on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock at the Moses H. Cone and Julian Price Memorial Park location. This area contains miles and miles of horseback riding trails and carriage trails and takes you through breathtaking scenery and around several beautiful lakes. The Blowing Rock Equestrian Preserve is located nearby and is also a nice source for information on horseback riding in the area, and the host of the longest running charity horse show, the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show.
