  • Eventing barns near Summerville/Charleston SC

    My best friend is moving to the Summerville, SC area and we are having little luck finding eventing barns in the area. Looking for leads on boarding barns with ADULT boarders, quality care and good sized turnout, riding space or ring preferred, ride out a huge plus. Her mare needs to be on field board with shelter as she cannot tolerate a stall for more than feed time. She will NOT have access to a trailer to haul out for lessons, shows, etc unless she finds a riding buddy who has one, so if the barn is within hacking distance to other activities or has adequate riding facilities, that would be great!
    Any suggestions on boarding facilities within a 45 minute drive of Summerville with an ADULT community of dressage, jumper, or eventers? Prefer low key as well without a requirement to train or lesson with on-site trainer. Or Who are some fantastic eventing/dressage trainers in the area? TIA!

    Also, what horsey things are there to do in the immediate area, besides traveling to the Aiken area. Are there schooling venues for XC, trail riding etc.? This is going to be a big change from leaving Northern Virginia/Maryland part of Area 2, so any input is greatly appreciated. She moves in 2 weeks!

    The eventing community is pretty small in Charleston though there are handful of people competing regularly in the area. You're best bet is to check out Middleton Place since that is where most of the eventers are. They have a few trainers there as well as dressage and jump rings and XC fences throughout the property. Also places to trail ride too.. I am not sure if they offer field board though.. a little down the road from there is Mateeba Oaks Stables. Its a smaller than Middleton but has a jump ring, dressage and trails. Two Tales in Ridgeville also has boarding and she just put in a brand new ring.
    There are no schooling venues in Charleston for XC the dressage circuit is pretty active however and there are hunter/jumper shows a few times a year at Mullet Hall.

      I sent you a PM. Definitely look into Katie Poag for dressage lessons. And not much horsey stuff in the immediate area, but Gibbes Farm is some excellent XC schooling and it's a little over an hour from Summerville area.
