Hi, we will be coming out to the Greenville area in a few weeks to look at properties in hopes of relocating there. Out here there are a few places that have neighborhoods planned for equestrians where each of the properties is a couple of acres or more, you can keep a couple horses, they have riding trails so you don't have to trailer out, and maintained arenas.
I was just wondering if there's any communities like this in the upstate, within commuting distance to Greenville area?
If not, is there some nice areas that are fairly rural where we can live and keep our horses but still fairly close to shopping and schools, where we wouldn't be isolated?

Thanks for any info!

Would you consider northwestern Spartanburg County and Polk County, North Carolina? Equestrian communities are popular in this area. For shopping major stores, Spartanburg is less than half an hour east on Interstate 26.

You might also want to consider looking at Aiken, SC too unless your heart is set on the mountains. It is about 2.5 hours south of Greenville.
We just moved from there to Greenville for work (Love it here so far!!!) and are from Aiken. Aiken is a big horse town. There are several master planned equestrian communities with stables, trails, etc.; drags in a HUGE forest in the middle of town, polo most weekends, they have their own Triple Crown - if you've heard of Palice Malice, he is from Aiken. It isn't uncommon to see someone on horseback or riding horse and buggy through the downtown area. Very horse friendly.

There is a community west of Simpsonville - Huntington Estates or Huntington Farms - something like that. Planned around horses with a common area that includes a stable and trails.

Haven't heard of many equestrian communities in this area.
