Equestrian Communities                    


The Walthour Moss Foundation, established by Virginia and “Pappy” Moss, occupies over 4000 acres of horse country and is a nature preserve.  Many of Southern Pines’ horse farms border this foundation.  This area boosts some of the world’s best riders, trainers, and horse breeders.  The equestrian community offers many social events and equestrian related activities from dressage, hunter/jumper events, carriage riding, racing, and an area steeplechase.  Horse farms are located in numerous areas of Moore County but the majority of farms are located in close proximity to Southern Pines.
