Situated in Okatie, along the spectacular Colleton River between Beaufort and Bluffton, in the heart of the Lowcountry lies Oldfield Plantation. Boasting one of the finest private sport fishing outfitter centers and naturalist programs in the Southeast, Oldfield’s attention to the outdoor lifestyle detail is also found in their well appointed equestrian center.
With the earliest recorded history of the land being granted to Governor Robert Johnson in 1732, the property exchanged hands only a handful of times until more recently in 1985, the owner used the plantation for a Quarter Horse breeding farm. The impressive network of horse fencing they built still stands as one of Oldfield’s most distinguishing features. Today, Equestrian Director Karah Daly maintains a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, welcoming all riding ages, levels and disciplines. The facility features 20 acres dotted with mature live oaks draped in spanish moss, with 10 irrigated turnout paddocks, a large sand riding arena with jumps, a 60-foot round pen and several miles of groomed riding trails. The red barn is designed and constructed by Morton with 12 stalls, each equipped with rubber mats, automatic waterers, automatic fly control system and individual fans. There are two climate controlled tack rooms, wash racks with hot water, a washer/dryer, comfortable restrooms and office, and the most recently installed fire monitoring system.
Equine enthusiasts and guests alike will appreciate the amenities at Oldfield Equestrian Center, whether it is for attending private lessons, horse shows, clinics and fox hunting, or just hanging out with the friendly barn cats and famous resident pig, Miss Phoebe.
