A New Era for the
Greater Charlotte Area
Charlotte has long been the center of a horse-rich area, but these days the region's horse business and topography are changing fast. Old riding trails and farms are being paved over to make room for outer belt roads and subdivisions. This means that trailering out to equestrian facilities and parks with bridle trails is becoming a regular part of our lives. This, in turn, means that we all need to know what facilities and parks are available, what events are planned for them, and what we can do to make sure such places continue to be open to us in the future.
To help Charlotte area horse owners stay informed of the events, opportunities, and issues important to them, we are happy to introduce EQ, the Central Carolina Equestrian Quarterly. EQ will be bringing you news and information specifically tailored for the rapidly developing Central Carolina area, as well as useful articles on horsemanship and husbandry.
It's an exciting time to be in this area. National and international news is being made by horse-related organizations based right here. Large scale equestrian facility construction is being planned nearby. And now EQ is here to help you keep up with all of it.
