    Default NC folks! Stuff to check out next week?

    I will be in the Triangle-area next week, and I'm wondering if there's any interesting horsey stuff to check out. I don't think I'll be there through the weekend, so I won't be able to check out any of the local horse shows, but I'm wondering if there's a good tack shop I shouldn't miss? A particular area with drool-worthy barns to take a meandering drive? I am hopefully going to be relocating to NC within the next year, so I wanted to get a feel for the horse scene, which I know is great I will have a car, so I am not restricted to just the Triangle area.

    Any tips are much appreciated!

    Southern Pines is probably worth the drive, but if you want a great tack shop, head south to South Carolina (couple hours drive though) to the Tack Room in Camden, SC.

    My favorite drives are around Chapel Hill/Hillsborough - the land out there is gorgeous and there's a lot of old dairy farms that have been converted to horse farms.

    If you want to see some nice horse farms, then Southern Pines is your place. We also have a good tack shop right downtown ("downtown" in SP is one road) called Cabin Branch. Lots of cute backeries and bistros for eating lunch, too.

    Southern Pines is definitely worth checking out. Cabin Branch is a great tack shop and the horse farms on Youngs Road are drool worthy. It makes a fun day trip.

    There isn't a hunter show next weekend in Raleigh at the James B Hunt horse complex but you could drive by there just to see it. There are 8 A and AA shows there every year along with a competitive C circuit.

    Macnairs Country Acres is a big farm about ten minutes from the horse complex and it has a nice tack shop called M and M Tack.

    Enjoy and hopefully, our weather should be welcoming.
