This region, encompassing parts of both North and SC, is known throughout the world for beautiful scenic countryside, rolling hills and mountains, quiet and quaint lifestyles and abundant horse and equestrian activities. Lush settings, ample grazing and running space, suitable terrain and vegetation, high-acreage farm properties, established trail systems, plentiful nearby sources of water and foliage - all of these natural elements combine to provide residents with superb opportunities for trail riding, foxhunting, breeding, carting, training and showing some of the finest equine breeds in the country. Whatever your equine passion is the area is fully equipped to support your needs.
The horse tradition dates back almost 100 years, and continues to be the area’s largest economic provider. Owning and caring for horses is never an easy thing, but the equine support services that are available here make the job much easier and less painful. There are seven large animal veterinarians - one with full operating facilities, others specializing in dentistry, acupuncture, and chiropractic, approximately twenty farriers, three feed and seed stores, tack and clothing shops, and when you want sawdust do you want it kiln dried, wet, 50/50 blend, in bags or augured into your bin.
All breeds can be found here but the predominate disciplines are hunter/ jumper and dressage. There are established training facilities available to meet your needs. Trail riding is a very active pastime, and there are five trail systems . FETA, the largest system, is open to public use with membership to those who live in Polk County and the Landrum area. Only a 50 minute drive away is the DuPont State Park which provides 10,000 acres of scenic trails with mountain views and large streams and waterfalls. The Biltmore House in Asheville, NC also provides a trial system meandering throughout the lovely estate. Great Smoky Mountain National Park has over 800 miles of riding and walking trails.
Fox Hunting is a old tradition in these rolling hills and there are two active clubs - The Tryon Hounds and the Green Creek Hounds.
Shows and exhibitions are held at either FENCE Equine Center or Harmon Field. FENCE has three all weather rings (two are lighted and one covered arena) and two training / warm up rings. The facility also has 300 permanent stalls. Harmon Field has four rings and 140 permanent stalls.
