Horse Country

We were interested in this area due to its proximity to Asheville, a town known for its artistic community, local cuisine and beautiful location in the foothills of the mountains.  Tryon, is about an hour south and has the more rural qualities we look for in home.  It has a great local community, and the farmers market hosts an abundance of what the area offers.  Not only will you find local beeswax candles along with your honey, but also a various array of heirloom veggies and homemade treats.  Tryon is also known for its equestrian background.  It is where the US Olympic Equestrian team began, and today a huge International Equestrian Facility calls home.  It is definitely an area you’d call horse friendly with trailer parking areas and miles of trail systems for local folks to enjoy. :)  It is known for its mild year round weather, being on an isothermal belt, so it makes for good riding all year long.  However, all bets may be off with global warming.  As the temperatures rise into the 90s, we’re not sure if the weather will get the best of us, but in this moment, we are happy to be here.  We look forward to experiencing and exploring the country here, and simply trying it on.  :)

An American horse won the Grand Prix on the 4th of July, 
it was fitting.
