Looking for horseback riding, not really riding lessons (I know how to ride a horse) but somewhere that has a guide with trails. It can be a little bit out, but I want to be out in the woods or on a trail, not just riding around a stable with super trained horses.

Latta Plantation has a school and trails. Not sure what their horses are like.
It all looked a bit unkempt when we went to take a look.

There's also Lynnwood Equestrian Farms in Fort Mill if you're looking for something in the south side of town.. I believe they do riding lessons as well.

If you don't mind hoofing it down here to Fort Mill, my favorite place for riding is at the Anne Springs Equestrian Center. Very pretty area--they ride around the trails on the Greenway. I know you don't need lessons, but if someone does, they have adult and child lessons--I did it, even though I know how to ride, and it was fun. And check out the adopt-a-horse program. Very cool. Here's the link:

Since the site states trail rides, I am assuming Western style riding. If so, I will check this place out. I've also been looking for a place to go, and everything I found previously was English style.

Oh yeah, it's definitely western-style, although I think they'd probably let someone do English tack--they have both. I've actually never seen a trail ride place offer English riding. You'll really like the greenway trail rides--very pretty place. And you can talk to the folks there and arrange for a private group ride. Sometimes they put together special day rides, where you pay a little more, but it's a 3-4 hour ride with a box lunch or something. We did that, and it was really fun. They took us all over the place, and we got to let the horses run a little bit here and there--much more interesting than your average trail ride. Have fun!
