Horseback Riding

Saddle Up in the High Country!

 

The Boone Area is nothing less than one of the best equestrian travel destinations in the South-with diverse area stables, riding programs, and miles of nationally significant bridle trails on the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway, the nation's most visited unit of the National Park System.

For 100 years, the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show has attracted horse enthusiasts from around the United States and the world. With hunter/jumper and saddlebred divisions, and events from June into early August, this classic annual destination event revels in the cool summer climate of the Boone Area. It also reflects the more than century-long tradition of upscale summer travel to the High Country. Part of the appeal is the Broyhill Equestrian Preserve, a full service facility for visiting riders and their mounts.

Whether you visit and board your horse for a week, a season, or trailer in for the day, mile-after-mile of scenic carriage and equestrian trails wander through the the Blue Ridge Parkway's Moses Cone Park, one of the East's top recreational riding experiences. These gradual trails wind through the whispering cool of towering forests to quiet lakes and distant vistas from lofty meadows.

For the most casual or vacation riders, there are also a number of stables in the area that provide rental mounts and offer guided rides. Check out the options below and get ready to ride...
