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. Because a horse is only happy when it has a job and when it’s doing that job.”
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.
