One fun and
adventurous way to enjoy the mountains is
to go horseback riding. There are many area stables
in the High Country that offer guided trail rides,
as well as many trails in general that equestrian
enthusiasts of all kind will enjoy.
For people seeking a more private and intimate trail
ride, Valle Crucis Farm has trails that are all privately
located on the family homestead in Valle Crucis.
There are a variety of different trails that
riders of all levels will certainly enjoy. Valle
Crucis Farm also offers horse drawn carriage rides,
hayrides in the fall, and horse drawn sleigh rides
in the winter. This place is truly one of a kind!

The Blowing Rock Equestrian Preserve is home to
America’s oldest continuous running horse show held
in July and August of each year. The preserve is
adjacent to the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, and has
access to over 26 miles of fun trails. The preserve

The Equestrian Center at Yonahlossee is known as the
finest horse boarding and riding instruction in the
High Country. The Saddle Club accommodates both

When in the mountains, horseback riding is a great
way to enjoy the fresh air of the mountains and see
beautiful sights that might not be accessible by a
car. We are sure you will enjoy your experience.
