Good places to go/vacation with a horse in NC/SC?????

Trying to find a fun, safe place to take my horse to get away from the "same old, same old" I would prefer it to be in the NC/SC area. Maybe even the beach?!?!? (don't know any good public horse beach access.) let me know if you know of any good places. THANKS!!!!!!!!

Its not the beach but The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC is a good place to vacation with your horse. You can rent stalls for the weekend and trail ride all over the property, its absolutely beautiful. Check the website, they sometimes have hunter paces and other group horsey activities.

Were you able to bring your horse? Or one that was there?

I personally love Uwharrie National Forest for riding. We stay at Canebrake Horse Camp. There are no beaches, but there is a lake. The trails are all marked with paint and color coded. The trail ranges from easy to extremely hard. Even on the easiest of the trails, though, your horse needs to be trail ready. Even the easy trails are to much for a horse that is only rode in the arena a couple of days a week (not saying that's what you do). So for a summary...

The Bad:
It is physically demanding for you and your horse
You can't ride side by side...the trails are narrow

The Good:
The trails are well marked
It is quiet and peaceful riding
There are places where you can water your horses
You can get in the lake and swim with your horse

Is there anyone else who trail rides anywhere in South Carolina or North Carolina that knows of any places where you can either trail ride for the day or even overnight?

Or even other places where you can go to train. (i know of the arc but that's it.)
