Steeped in a rich horse history, the Tryon namesake has been at the forefront of the south east equestrian movement for decades. Nestled in the thermal belt along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina, Tryon is long sought-after by people looking to embrace mild temperatures and beautiful landscapes throughout the year.
The Tryon area, often described as “4 towns, 2 states, and one community”, is located along the North and South Carolina borders and is comprised of the towns of Tryon, Columbus, and Saluda, NC, as well as the city of Landrum, SC.
The area is home to an impressive art community, with galleries and a fine arts center, as well as numerous local musicians. There are also a plethora of antique shops. You may ride your horse along the miles of protected equestrian trails, enjoy becoming a member of various hunt clubs, tee up at several local golf courses, indulge at a vineyard, go for a mountain hike, and enjoy spectacular waterfalls, shop, dine and don’t forget to visit the Tryon Fine Arts Center that hosts an annual International Film Festival each year.
