Visitors to Aiken, South Carolina and the region of the state known as Thoroughbred Country can expect to see an unusual neighbor in the city limits – horses. Aiken is the center of horse training and sports, a feature brought to the region by the wealthy elite who once claimed the area as their personal playground. With an abundance of gorgeous cottage-style summer retreats that once housed the rich and famous, Aiken is a charming city that mixes the modern and the traditional. Beyond Aiken, Thoroughbred Country consists of small cities with hidden gems like God’s Acre Healing Springs in Blackville (still believed by the locals to have healing powers) or the beautifully constructed Church of the Holy Apostles and quirky vertical sundial in downtown Barnwell. Each town, city and place in the Thoroughbred Country region of South Carolina is proud to share its unique identity with visitors, making the area’s motto – “We’re much more than horses” – ring true.
