About South Carolina



Admittedly, the Palmetto state’s “street cred” in the equestrian community seems underwhelming on the surface: The state ranks a modest No. 37 nationwide in number of horses with 94,773.

Yet just like a brushing a stallion brings out a beautiful shine, a closer inspection of the Palmetto state’s “horse power” shows it’s got a rather significant pedigree. Top jockeys, trainers and owners have originated from here. The Aiken area is known for its thoroughbred pastures. And South Carolina is one 10 states with an official horse, the Carolina Marsh Tacky.

The Lowcountry, too, has a long history with riding, breeding and racing. And while hardly center ring today, it remains on the periphery of the horse world.

South Carolina equestrian properties are regaining interest after being affected by the housing downturn in the past few years. Deals are available. 

In many cases, the horse farms aren’t that far from cities and suburbs.

South Carolina is located in southeast United States. Three geographic regions cover the state. The Atlantic Coastal Plain (or the South Carolina Low Country) extends west from the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Coastal Plains are swampy, flat and marked by rivers near the coast. The Coastal Plains are forested and lined with sandy hills as you move inland. The higher elevations and rolling hills of the Piedmont are located northwest of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. The more low lying Blue Ridge Mountains cross northwest South Carolina with elevations reaching 3,000 ft.


South Carolina's economy is historically based on agriculture. Tobacco, poultry, cattle, dairy, soybeans and hogs are important agricultural products. Growth of the textile industry met an ill fate in the 1920s with the appearance of the boll weevil--sending many African Americans north in search of work. Textile and clothing industries are based in Piedmont and continue to be an important industry to the state, along with chemical products, paper products, machinery and tourism.

Renovated Historic Equestrian Estate with Panoramic Views

Blythewood, Richland County, South Carolina

This is a stunning, completely renovated, historic home that is situated prominently on 23+/- acres with panoramic views overlooking the valley and surrounding horse farms. This incredible property has undergone over $2M in thoughtful renovations and upgrades that preserve and respect the historic integrity of the home yet add functionality to the property. The main house is c.1788 by a Buckner Hagood and was a four-room, two-story typical ''up-country farmhouse''. In c.1908 the home and dairy farm was acquired by Lee Muller of Calhoun County before it passed to his son George Frederick Muller. The current owners purchased the home in c.1998. While son ''Fred'' and his wife Catherine (Muller) occupied the home, it experienced the most substantial renovation until the current owners took over. Catherine, who was an interior designer, added a dining room and a kitchen wing which included a screened-in porch to take full advantage of the incredible views. Fred and Catherine also added a master bedroom suite. When the current owners took over, they added a study, pool, outdoor kitchen and they converted the screened-in porch to a sunroom. In 2015, they completely renovated the kitchen and pantry area with high-end finishes. They brought in hardwood floors from a 120 yr old church, Meile® appliances from Germany, a French farmhouse sink, milk-glass subway tile backsplash from China, gorgeous soapstone countertops and custom cabinets. During their renovations, the current owners have preserved the heart-pine floors in many of the rooms and stairs in the house. Your private outdoor oasis will provide you with year-round entertaining for years to come. The heated inground saltwater pool and spa show off the space with a cascading waterfall feature and lovely brick surround. The full outdoor chef's kitchen adds a perfect balance to accommodate all of your guests with the Lynx® gas (LP) grill, pot boiler, warming drawer, refrigerator and ice machine. A stainless steel sink and bar height eating area complete this one-of-a-kind outdoor kitchen. Finally, when the weather changes, time to open the gas (LP) fire pit and watch picture-perfect sunsets on the horizon.
