By Jan Westmark Tryon, North Carolina, is the “place to be” right now with the opening of the new Tryon International Equestrian Center. It’s a gorgeous facility and the show season is about to kick off. As the Editor of Sidelines/real estate broker, I spend a lot of time in Tryon (and nearby Lake Lure – another gorgeous place!) and last year Libbie Johnson took me on a great historic tour of Tryon and then wrote a story on Tryon for the April 2014 issue of Sidelines

Where’s my hairnet? Visiting with George Morris at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. Photo by Emily Allongo — emilyallongophotography.com By Jan Westmark I lived in South Florida for many years and loved showing at the Winter Equestrian Festival
By Jan Westmark I am excited about being a real estate broker in North Carolina and combining my two careers – Editor of Sidelines Magazine and selling houses and horse farms!! I’m excited because I work and live in one of the most beautiful places in the country — the Western North Carolina Mountains! The coolest part about Lake Lure and Tryon is that they are so close together. You can make it from the ring in Tryon to Lake Lure in under 20 minutes! And Asheville is just a short drive up the mountain.
