Upcoming Events


FRC puts on many varied events during the year, from shows, to clnics, seminars, clinics, community service, hunter pace and more. On this page we want to showcase all we do!

Educational Seminars


Foothills Riding Club

Besides beautiful views, the trails also have a rich history behind them.  As the story goes, Hogback Mountain, which is west of the pond at Circle Z Farm, was once used as a practice target for artillery troops during WW1.  There were bunkers constructed into the side of the hills on Circle Z Farm, from which soldiers practiced shooting before they left for war.  When the bunkers were filled in after the war, they became riding trails for local fox hunts and hunter paces. 

The FRC is excited to continue this tradition and we look forward to the next Hunter Pace at Circle Z Farm.  A huge shout out and thank-you to our hosts, the Zordans, and our wonderful volunteers who help clear the trails and make this whole event possible!  Foothills Mountain BBQ provids the riders with amazing meals. Many thanks to the Western Carolina Hunter Pace Series for partnering with FRC and helping to promote our Hunter Pace!
