The first locale is a serene former dairy farm that is being transformed into a premier Eventing venue. Alicia Henderson is the genius behind the rebirth of Windridge Farm in Mooresboro, NC. She is developing her family's legacy into a destination for those equestrians that like to " go for the gusto" be it mounted or driving, as they also host combined driving competitions. She is slowly, but deliberately executing the vision; clearing by clearing, obstacle by obstacle. Thanks for all of your hard work- it is BEAUTIFUL!!!
The second venue was Tryon International Equestrian Center www.tryonhorseshows.com. We stopped in on Saturday night on the way home from the Horse Trials to check out the progress of this brand new complex. The dedication ceremony was to take place the next afternoon, and the place was abuzz with all of the last minute preparations. Talk about a "well oiled machine", I have never seen anything quite like it. This place is a true testament to the "git r done" attitude; they broke ground in January and held their first completion in July! The setting is truly breathtaking and the amenities are second-to-none. Bravo!
Have a Smart Day!!
