The most perfect place available to ride at The Greenbrier Sporting Club has to be at the pinnacle of Greenbrier Mountain, just a short distance from our Summit Lodge.
This year Sporting Club horses Lily, Daisy, Bootsie, Sunny and Gus can be found pastured on top of Greenbrier Mountain, providing Sporting Club members with a whole new environment to explore while trail riding. The horses enjoy their own fenced in pasture, complete with shelter and running water. Rides start at Jackson Circle and are in Western saddles, unless English saddles are specifically requested.
Trail rides are available for riders of all skill levels. Beginners can take a relaxing ride through The Summit neighborhoods while more advanced riders can choose a variety of trails, including part of The Summit Trail, which features incredible views of The Snead and The Greenbrier resort. With luck riders may see local fauna including wild turkey and deer.
Several members and their guests have taken our fantastic four-legged beauties out on these fun new trails, and they are looking forward to returning again soon. If you haven’t had a chance to experience for yourself then you still have some time to schedule before the horses go back down the mountain for the winter. Catch a warm day and sneak in a ride before the snow falls.
