South Carolina

Horse & Rider - - Horse Life -

The fam­ily-friendly event fea­tures a ven­dor vil­lage with nightly en­ter­tain­ment and a cel­e­bra­tory 20-mile ride on the beau­ti­ful South Carolina beaches, bring­ing to­gether horse-lovers of all types for a great cause.

“Walk­ing around the camp­ground, it’s easy to see why so many peo­ple make the trek back ev­ery year,” shares Julie Good­night, a horse­man­ship clin­i­cian and TV host. “Be­fore I came here, I thought it was all about the horses. But clearly, it’s about much more than that,” says Good­night about the ex­pe­ri­ence that ben­e­fits the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion.

Rid­ers can en­joy the beach by horse­back on a 4-mile stretch dur­ing each of the event’s five days. The Satur­day, 20-mile ride is the cul­mi­na­tion of the event and is the only time of year the city of Myr­tle Beach al­lows horses on the ocean­front. Hun­dreds of tourists and lo­cals line the beach to see the beau­ti­ful horses pa­rade past.
