Hello everyone, I am planning a move to the upstate area from Florida in early July and am trying to familiarize myself as best I can without actually being there. I've had horses my entire life and plan to keep it that way. I was curious about the equestrian community in the area. Is it thriving? Are the parks equestrian friendly? How about feed and hay costs? Boarding costs? I'd be much more interested in renting a pasture as opposed to a stall, are those fairly common? I personally do endurance racing but am open to all disciplines if anyone ever needs a riding buddy, and would be willing to show a newcomer the ropes!

There is an international equestrian center in Tryon, NC. That would be in the mountains and only one hour away from Greenville, SC.

The area north of highway 11, between I-26 and US 221 is full of horses, more concentrated towards SC9.

Of course the further east you go along 11, the further away from the mountains you get.

Thank you all for your insight! I suppose I'll just have to get out there and experience it for myself. That's the best way, right?

Thank you! What part of FL are you from? How do you like it in SC in comparison to FL? I'm 28 and I've lived here my entire life! The sun and salt is all I know but I am VERY excited (and a little nervous) to make the plunge up there. I've never experienced the change of seasons so I'm really looking forward to that, especially the fall!

I moved from the Orlando area. I like it up here but miss FL at times. They are both different, of course. I like each for other reasons. The seasons are nice. I like the change. I could pass on winter but it doesn't last that long. This year wasn't bad at all. Come up and take a look Btw, if you fly, Allegiantair has cheap flights here.

Thank you for the tip I'll most likely be driving as I have two big dogs and a parrot. The only thing I know I'm going to miss about Florida is the coast, and I know I'll be able to take trips to sc coast but it's a little different when you are used to living on the water! Either way I consider it an adventure of sorts and I can't wait
