Welcome to Whitewater Equestrian Center
Don't just see Western North Carolina. Experience it!
Whitewater Equestrian Center is the home of beautiful Western North Carolina guided trail rides and gem mining.
Located in a natural North American rain forest, one of only two; the other being in Seattle, Washington. We go out into the wilderness, on a guided informative trail ride. You will learn of the deep-rooted local Native American history, plants they used for medicines, such as headaches, poisonous venom bites/stings, as well as stomach ailments.
During the trail ride, you will experience reaching the peaks of 3 mountains, which offers stunning 360-degree views. Some of your scenery will include 3 majestic natural lakes. Part of your journey will include traversing some of the same trails and paths that natives used in their travels. Located just 1.5 miles from the beautiful Whitewater Falls; a stunning waterfall with an elevation of 414 ft.; the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains!
The trail ride is approximately 4 miles. Our horses, mild-mannered and gentle, were previously owned by the children's camp, and will offer a smooth and comfortable ride. It is an experience you will not want to miss, and will be sure to create lasting memories!
We don't have age requirements or weight restrictions and is safe for all levels of riders!
