The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center or FENCE offers 384 acres of hardwood forest, meadow,
and wetland for hikers, birdwatchers, gardeners, astronomers. Our entire property is protected
by a conservation easement, so it will always be available for future generations. During the school year,
some eight thousand elementary and junior high school students join our Project FENCE natural history curriculum.



Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) has quickly become an international hub for many
 of the world’s top equestrian athletes. We welcomes guests 365 days a year to watch, dine, shop,
 and experience one of the premier riding facilities in the world built for the love of horses and our sport.
