THE ARENAS

Tryon Resort features 12 world-class arenas in the center of the facility. Every detail has been meticulously thought out. The footing in the arenas is specially engineered to be an all-weather surface for equestrian sports, providing shock absorption, stability, and traction for athletes moving across the surface, and superior drainage so that competition can continue even in rainy weather. This makes TIEC arenas, filled with a specialized sand and fiber mixture, great for both horses and humans alike! The surface is designed not to kick up in the horse or rider’s face, is a forgiving surface in impact situations, and provides an elevated player experience for traditional sand sports. TIEC also features stadium lights for nighttime events and plenty of seating. And visitors are never too far away from a bite to eat, a drink, or a bathroom.
