Your Guide to the Best Horseback Riding Near Raeford

If you're searching for a fun way to work out, try horseback riding. As you learn how to trot and gallop, you will help improve your coordination and core strength. The best places for horseback riding near our Raeford apartments include:

Fourth Rock Stables

Family-owned and operated, Fourth Rock Stables began featuring horseback riding fun in 1998. The instructors provide Western trail riding lessons. They welcome all abilities and provide the horse and all tack. Additionally, Fourth Rock also features daily trail rides that are packed full of fun. Choose from hourly or half-day options.

White Winds Farm Equestrian Center

At the White Winds Farm Equestrian Center, the Dunlap family helps "develop good horsemanship in riders while keeping the fun in riding." The team offers lessons in dressage, cross-country jumping, and stadium jumping. The sessions last for 50 minutes, and students gain a solid knowledge of horses and riding. You'll find the school horses are full of personality. They're gentle, and the team will pair you with the right one based on your height and weight. If you don't have a helmet, the center will provide one until you purchase your own.

Jerry Kings Training

Located on more than 50 acres, Jerry Kings Training is where Jerry is known across the country for his ability to train horses. He boasts years of experience. Jerry enjoys a challenge and makes the transition to under the saddle as smooth as possible. In addition to breaking horses, Jerry and his team also offer cutting/sorting lessons.
