New book celebrates Foothills equestrian lifestyle

Published 9:23 am Friday, November 28, 2008

Here&squo;s an idea for holiday gift-giving, and one that will benefit Therapeutic Riding of Tryon (TROT), a therapeutic horse riding program for special needs children and adults in Polk, Rutherford, Spartanburg and Greenville counties.

&uot;Tryon Style&dquo; provides a tour in photographs and text of the Foothills&squo; unique bond between horses and humans. It&squo;s full of fascinating stories and anecdotes of Foothills history: how the U.S. Olympic Team came to Tryon, a complete history of the historic Block House Steeplechase, a history of Harmon Field (including who&squo;s buried there).

&uot;Tryon Style&uot; includes photography by Erik Olsen, Elizabeth Sher, Mark Lehner, and others as well as historic photographs that have never before been published.
