Horses arrive in Tryon

Horses arrive in Tryon

Be on the lookout in April for something new downtown and throughout Polk County and Landrum. Our Carolina Foothills presents life sized fiberglass horses, each with a unique design by local artists as a spring/summer draw to our region.


We are pleased that four of the artists chosen for this project live in Tryon. Local talent Christine Mariotti is one of three artists designing multiple horses. Other artists include the team of Joan McIntrye and Sarah Holmberg, Kim Attwooll and Lee Barker.
