Just a short drive away is Tryon International Equestrian Center, a premier equestrian lifestyle destination showcasing some of the top riders in the hunter/jumper, dressage, and eventing disciplines. This major regional attraction, with 10 riding arenas, 850 permanent stalls, and an exquisite covered riding facility, is another venue in The Cliffs’ blue-ribbon lifestyle.
The riding trails through Jocassee Gorges Wilderness Area — named one of the “World’s Last Great Places” by National Geographic — start with the cool, shady trails right within Keowee Vineyards.

“We teach children and adults horsemanship, how to be around a horse, how to handle them, care for them and understand them. They learn to ‘read’ a horse by seeing how it interacts with other horses, with its owner, and with other people. They gain an understanding of the horse and what it wants to do.”
Our members are always sharing scenes from memorable rides. In every season, one of a rider’s great joys is watching the gradual changes in the leaves, the mountain air and favorite trails. On your horse, you’re connected to nature here in a very special way. Share your experience on horseback by tagging @CliffsLiving and using #CliffsLiving.
