The Etowah Riding Club has been an important part of history here in Henderson County and our goal is to continue that legacy.  Please take a few minutes to look at the deep roots of ERC and it's founding members: ERC HISTORY

We encourage participation & support of the many horse events & resources in our area.  As more land is developed, space for equestrian activities becomes more and more scarce.  We would love to post equine horse events in our surrounding community as well as town council meetings, ways to speak up, and get involved!  Email us if there is something you feel needs to be added to this list.
