THE EQUESTRIAN CENTER
WE HAVE MILES OF TRAILS JUST WAITING TO BE EXPLORED
The Equestrian Center appeals to both members who own horses and those who simply enjoy casual riding. Situated at 4,500 feet, the magnificent 30-stall equestrian center and 40 acres of highland pastures and paddocks are horse heaven! Adjacent are an additional 140 acres of riding preserve and miles of beautiful nature trails for horse and rider to explore.
Within the stable there are 30 stalls, two tack rooms, inside and outside wash racks, and a comfortable member’s lounge for relaxation after a long trail ride. Adjacent to the stable are rings for riders to practice riding and jumping. Members enjoy personalized riding programs overseen by some of the best riding professionals in North Carolina.
“When my husband and I first started to look for a summer residence to escape the Florida heat, we knew that we had two major requirements: great golf and a high-quality equestrian environment. Combine those factors with cool weather, low humidity, and the relative convenience of the Florida commute, Elk River met all the requirements!”
