Weekend Down South

Escape the cold NYC winter and join us down south with the Galloping Guru horses for this uniquely curated trip offering you all the BEST that The South has to offer! Stay in the small town of Thomson, Georgia, home to the famed Belle Mead Hunt and Foxboro Farm. 

The horses are stabled at Foxboro Farm, spanning 300 acres with maintained trails, cross-country jumping fields, hunter arenas, dressage rings, a round pen and a Grand Prix jumping field. You will start your trip here with a 2 hour hack through this magical Disney Land for Equestrians! Get to know your horse over various obstacles and terrain. 

Friday morning, take a 1 hour drive to the epicenter of Eventing in the US, Aiken South Carolina. Your horse will be trailered down for you and riders will meet at Hitchcock Woods for another bucket list hack through this famous equestrian trail system. Part of the hack will be through Aiken Town itself! You will ride your horse up to the iconic Wilcox Hotel and enjoy a stirrup cup. 

Saturday morning, Belle Meade Hunt invites us to experience the unparalleled sport of foxhunting provided by their expansive hunt country. With 4 flights and a range of speed, jumps and adrenaline this hunt has something for everyone! Get there early to enjoy a fabulous stirrup cup and meet some of the wonderful members of this hunt. Stay after for a hearty and delicious southern breakfast in their kennel house, Boots Hall!

Sunday, your final ride will be back at Foxboro to explore more of this expansive training ground. We encourage you to stop at the grocery on the way and coordinate a tailgate with the other riders in our group. Spend the morning on a leisurely timeline and enjoy the company of your group and horses along with your final unforgettable ride down south!
