About Our Equestrian Tradition

Traditions Run Deep in the Equestrian Communities
of Western North Carolina

trad1In the Foothills, where mild temperatures have drawn horse-lovers for decades, the tradition continues. Picturesque towns of Tryon, Columbus NC and nearby Landrum SC offer equestrian communities, properties, and horse farms. Home to many equine professionals, Tryon horses remain among the best in the hunt field and the arena.

The foothills of western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina offer many equestrian disciplines from steeplechasing to dressage, hunter/jumper to carriage driving.  With the addition of the new Tryon International Equestrian Center,  Tryon’s place is solidified as one of the top equestrian destinations in the world.

For a more leisurely experience, our miles of trails include nationally recognized trail associations with more than 100 miles of trails on private land and nearby public trail systems include North and South Carolina state parks.

Although there is land aplenty for those that have dreamed of their own Tryon horse farm property, there is also specially designed equestrian communities in western North Carolina that are springing up for those who want a more neighborhood approach to their horse farm dreams.

The equestrian traditions and lifestyle in the foothills of western North Carolina is charismatic. Bonnie Lingerfelt is an equestrian who appreciates the needs of horsemen and incorporates those needs when searching for horse properties
