  • This is an amazing facility and such a surprise for folks who don't know what to expect of it. It is quite out of the way and so the size and sophistication of the center is amazing. Every time we vis...  more »
  • Horse shows are awesome. Food and other amenities are way over the locals budget! It's a little in the middle of no where, so eat before or after you go, or expect to pay through the nose!  more »
  • All we heard while we were hitting the wineries for wine tastings was how good the sushi was at Ya Chin at the Equestrian Center. It is okay...not great....not bad. My wife and I tried the Seaweed sal...  more »

  • This was the first time my mom and I have ever been to the Tryon Equestrian Center! I was a competition jumper back in the day and my mom just loves horses! It was so much fun for us both, we had a blast walking around exploring before the competition. They have indoor and out door activities and a variety of food and beverage choices for all ages. Great place for family and children. The longer we stayed, we could tell we were in for a treat. Capturing this amazing sunset before the night was over!
  • Beautiful place.. would like to go back when all the action is going on!! This place is HUGE! and something for everyone! You don't miss this experience if horses are your thing like they are mine! : ) (ps~ this photo is only a small fraction of this beautiful facility)
  • Tryon is a beautiful, one of a kind equestrian facility and is honestly one of my favorite places to be on a Saturday night in the summer. The whole facility is simply breathtaking, from the view of the mountains to the beautiful log cabin design. The only thing truly negative I have to say about Tryon is during the world games they needed more shuttle buses running. We waited over 40 minutes for a shuttle bus to take us to our car. I would have walked to my car but Tryon had everyone coming to the world games to park about 20 minutes from the venue in the middle of nowhere and then shuttle us to TIEC.
  • If you love horses, you will love this place. They have events most of the year. Check out Saturday night lights and gladiator polo. All the info is on their website. Also, tons of great food!!!
  • Beautiful area and the Equestrian Center is tops! Our room above the office was very comfortable and clean. It had a small kitchen big enough to make our breakfast. I would defiantly recommend!
