Not only does Leatherwood Mountains offer some of the finest Real Estate in Western North Carolina, but it is also one of the premier equestrian communities in the country. The Blue Ridge Mountains provide the perfect backdrop for NC Horseback Riding, and Leatherwood has a wide variety of deeded, maintained trails that range from easy, wide forest paths to rugged mountain trails. Regardless of experience or skill level, you’re guaranteed to have a great time.
Our equine center also offers full service boarding including 60 stalls, outdoor show-sized riding ring, a generous covered and lighted arena for riding in less than ideal conditions, horseback riding lessons and a training program, guided trail riding services, and events year round. People from all over the southeast come to Leatherwood to ride on some of the most scenic North Carolina horseback riding trails in the mountains.
Leatherwood has been honored to host renowned equine celebrities and clinicians such as Chris Cox, Julie Goodnight, Tom Seay & Steve Edwards. Our Events Calendar holds a myriad of equine related events that provide year round entertainment.

TRAIL UPDATE (2/2021): We are very pleased to announce that our trails have been diligently improved through a massive community volunteer effort in addition to POA trail repairs. While some trails remain closed, MANY problem areas have been made passable and safe for riders and hikers. The current situation & the future of Leatherwood Trails has never looked so good! Hope to see you soon!
