Abstract:
The horse industry is good for North Carolina's economy, producing annual revenues of over $750 million and creating more than 10,000 jobs. Activities range from rustic trail rides in the Appalachians to elegant events. North Carolina's four steeplechases are the most elegant of all. They are Stoneybrook (Raeford); Block House Races (Tryon); Queens Cup (Mineral Springs); and Brookhill (Clayton). Racing is a small part of the industry. Horseshows are very popular, with state equestrian centers sponsoring them across the state every weekend.
