Lowcountry Hunt Week
South CarolinaGallop along the beach and ride the beautiful historic plantations with us for our 4th year down south with Galloping Guru and the Lowcountry Hunt. Enjoy great fellowship, fabulous low country cuisine and festive social events in stunning locations.
Our trip kicks off with a warm welcome and introduction to your horse and their stabling location. Day 2 is a highlight of the trip with a 2 hour morning beach ride along miles of white sand beaches. The day finishes with an evening Oyster Roast on the banks of the Ashepoo River where you will meet the many other guests from across the country while listening to music under a ceiling of moon and stars. Hunting begins on days 3, 4 and 5 at stunning territories with 3 fields for riders and lasting around 1.5 to 2 hours. Each hunt boasts a beautiful stirrup cup with lite bites and socializing before you mount and set off. After each ride you will enjoy an abundant catered breakfast of delicious southern cuisine and adult beverages!
Aside from the hunts, evening social events take place almost everyday and the silent auction is full of equestrian treasures for you to take home! Photographers will be on site to capture all of these beautiful moments. Enjoy this incredible experience with 150+ other riders from across the country.
