The Lowcountry Equestrian Lifestyle

Lowcountry living is synonymous with the equestrian lifestyle- fabulous weather, a tight knit community filled with outdoor enthusiasts, and a breathtaking environment with its maritime forest to explore with your equine partners.

With the numerous equestrian facilities and communities geared toward horse owners and equine enthusiasts right here in Beaufort County, The Melton Group can assist in finding the best match for both you and your horse(s). Whether you are looking for a home where your horses can reside right in your backyard or a top-notch training facility minutes from your doorstep, the area offers a plethora of options.

Bluffton is becoming one of the premier equestrian places to live on the East Coast. The beautiful weather provides a year-round horse friendly environment. The Lowcountry is very convenient to some of the largest competition venues in the country. Winter circuits, such as WEF (Winter Equestrian Festival) in Wellington, FL and WEC or HITS in Ocala, FL, are well within driving distance. This is also true for acclaimed locations such as Tryon, NC, Camden, SC, home of The Camden Cup steeplechase, and of course, Aiken, SC which is known for its rich history of horses.

The Lowcountry is host to numerous club and equestrian events. From charity Polo events held at Rose Hill and Palmetto Bluff to weekend hunter/jumper shows held at Longfield Stables to exploring historical plantations with the Lowcountry Hunt, there are plenty of opportunities to meet fellow equestrians. There are several therapeutic riding programs that offer equine training for those who qualify as well as volunteer opportunities, such as Heroes on Horseback.

Also, did you know that you can even ride on the beach at Hunting Island State Park and on Daufuskie Island in the winter?

Whether a life long equestrian or an intrigued observer, the Lowcountry offers many options to interact and explore these amazing animals.

The Melton Group specializes in equestrian properties and is looking forward to assisting you and your equine partner in finding the perfect spot to call home. Call us today at 843-290-3640 to Learn More!
