Aiken, both historically and today, provides an ideal environment for horses and horse people no matter what your discipline. The sublime footing, so prevalent throughout the area, combined with the temperate climate and abundance of equine oriented resources provides the ideal environment in which one can enjoy their horses. The wealth of horse show facilities, from three day event venues, to show venues utilized for hunter/jumper and dressage shows, facilities catering to the various western disciplines from Western Pleasure to Rodeo, multiple practice and tournament quality polo fields with three clubs hosting tournaments from 2-12 goals, along with the presence of multiple fox hunts and glorious trails makes Aiken the ultimate equestrian destination. The historically significant and stunning Hitchcock Woods a 2100+ acre urban forest in which vehicular traffic is prohibited, centrally located in the heart of Aiken, is an unparalleled resource for all equestrians no matter what your pleasure. This long equestrian presence has resulted in a community that offers many types of equestrian properties from small hunt boxes, to equestrian estates, to professional training facilities in a multitude of locations from the horse district in the heart of Aiken to the countryside of Aiken County.
