Click your heels and imagine a magical place of pastoral beauty in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains that celebrates horses in its history and in its future. The Tryon Resort defines a new era of luxury resorts which offers top level equestrian competition exciting for participants and spectators along with a world class Arnold Palmer designed golf course, future resort and spa and a natural vista perfect for hiking, biking, water sports and the refined art of relaxation. Come for a day or stay for a lifetime...
A small town atmosphere where cultural and intellectual life flourish side by side and highlighted by the international equestrian world of show jumping and eventing, dressage, steeplechase, carriage driving, hunting. New, luxurious full equipped stables. Miles of hiking, biking and riding trails in bucolic countryside and in the mountains. Now add in one of the largest and most contemporary equestrian show and training facilities in the country, a signature championship golf course, babbling streams for fly fishing, lakes for boating, duck blinds, and an outdoor recreational mecca of activities. All this and lodging options to accommodate all levels of travelers from luxury RVs, spacious log cabins, a mountainside inn (2016), and a five star level luxury Salamander Resort & Spa (2017). This is the vision for the Tryon Resort and the Tryon International Equestrian Center, a 1400 acre development located in the rolling foothills of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountain range.
Destined to become recognized as one of the premier centers in the equestrian world, this new facility opens in June 2014 with sanctioned shows and initial supporting amenities.
