I am trying to find places in NC or SC to trail ride with my daughter. We have current coggins but have no ideas where we can go. Where we live we have to ride on the road for a long way before you can get to anything. I have trailer so dont mind to travel some . All of our horses are pretty young and two of the three still green so hate riding on the road even though they all seem ok with it. Anyone know places that we could ride.

I'm from N.C. There are a lot of good places to ride around my area. I really enjoy Uwharrie. I'm posting a link for you here. There are easy trails all the way up to very difficult ones. I recommend that your horse be in good shape physically though, because on almost all the trails there are lots of hills. It's a great trail though, with water crossing, logs, etc. You can even ride around the lake if you want. I'm looking up some info on some others that are fun also.

This one is the Moses Cone park. It is rated easy to moderate, but I think it's all pretty easy. It's got those wide trails, so that if you prefer to ride side by side then it's nice. The Uhwarrie trails are not wide like that (at least none that I have been on).
Moses H. Cone Memorial Park & Flat Top Manor

Also here is Morrow mountain trails, also nice and wide. I don't think they have horse camping though...IDK for sure.

I'm in NC and definitely looking for someone to ride with myself! how old is your daughter if you don't mind me asking. i'm 16. and none of my friends are really interested in riding horses. and usually the people i ride with are the old time cowboys. so if you are willing to travel down to NC near the hickory area me and my mom would gladly trail ride with her. but we don't have a trailer it's kind of hard for us to get anywhere. we have about 30 acres of land to ride on. plus i live out in the country. and then there are around 60 acres out behind the Rodeo that tons of people ride on. send me a pm if you are interested = )

:)rum4 told you about some great places to ride in SC - you should check out the National Forest parks around NC - I LOVE the Sumter National Forest parks here in SC - Woods Ferry is my favorite - another great place is one that rum4 brought up, Brick House (Buncombe Horse Trail). I have wanted to go to Uwharrie forever but have never made it. Good luck with your search!
