Knowing about the USEA (United States Eventing Association) coming to Tryon for its annual competition this week (August 31-September 4) is a very big deal. These are Olympic level events bringing the most accomplished equestrians in the United States, their crews, their horses, and their fans to our formerly off the radar tiny little dot in the foothills of the Appalachians. The positive impact on the value of just being in Tryon at this level of recognition is gigantic. Good to know. We’ll do the numbers on this next week.
