Tryon Equestrian Region

Village of Tryon

The quaint Village of Tryon is located on the first rise of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Tryon is known for its wonderful people, outdoor activities, mild climate, small town shops, great restaurants and a rich equestrian history. Typically, quirkiness is regarded as intangible, but in Tryon’s case it is palpable.  Our friendly, offbeat personality is a big part of what makes us who we are. This is a town of unexpected nooks teeming with a cast of characters that even Garrison Keillor would have had trouble imagining.
