The Equestrian Department’s Ride ‘N Wines offer Members a unique experience

The Haig Point Equestrian Center offers lessons and trail rides, along with special events and custom rides throughout the year. One of the most popular and unique ways to experience all that the quickly expanding department has to offer is joining our team on our monthly Ride ‘N Wine! New Members and riders of all experience levels are encouraged to sign up. This is a great way to meet new people, and try something different. We ask that all attendees be at least 21 years old. Closed-toed shoes and long pants are required.

Rides begin from the beautiful Sportsman’s Lodge at the Melrose Stables, where all riders will get checked in and assigned horses. Our growing herd is made up of 12 beginner-friendly trail horses of various breeds. Riders will enjoy a relaxing 45-minute stroll through the maritime forest and alongside the Calibogue Sound, where they will experience the beauty of Daufuskie’s flora and fauna from horseback.

These special tours are led by the Director of Equestrian, Claire Sistek, who has lived on Daufuskie for four years. Originally from Ligonier, Pennsylvania, Claire has been working in the equine industry for many years and attended the Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, where she received a BA in Biology and was a member of the Bloomsburg University Equestrian Team.

After the ride, you will be able to enjoy complimentary charcuterie prepared by Chef Taylor, paired with wine of your choice. The Lodge itself is a warm and welcoming venue, with a lounge, pool table, and gift shop. Guests are welcome to bring their own beverages if they would like something other than the provided wine. Although our horses are all beginner-friendly and new riders are always encouraged to participate, we completely understand that riding just isn’t for everyone. If a member of your party would like to join only for the refreshment portion of the event that’s totally fine, we just ask that it is mentioned at the time of confirmation.
