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.
We are also proud to announce that famous clinician Chris Cox recently held clinics at Leatherwood. Chris is one of the country’s leading horsemen and clinicians, and tours the entire world teaching his effective and practical training techniques to horse owners lucky enough to attend one of his clinics. Chris Cox was the winner of 2007 Road to the Horse national trainers’ competition.
