This is how we define recovery.

The pain in Faith Rollins’ knee had made her world painfully small. She couldn’t go to the grocery store, she couldn’t play with her grandchildren and she certainly couldn’t go hiking with her husband anymore. Now Faith’s world looks a lot bigger, thanks to Rutherford Orthopaedics. Within six months of her total knee replacement, Faith reached her first ambitious goal, climbing 400 steps to the top of Chimney Rock to take in a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains she loves so dearly. “I have my confidence back,” Faith says. “I’m a completely new woman.”

EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES, CLUBS, SERVICES With wide-open green pastures surrounded by beautiful rolling mountains, Polk County provides a picturesque backdrop for horse enthusiasts to set their lives and hobbies against. The equine industry is a major factor in the area’s economy and recreation. The temperate climate of the area well supports a flourishing equine community, which is conducive to year-round riding. ‘Tryon Horse Country’ is recognized nationally, as well as internationally. Other small businesses benefit from the equine community as well, by providing goods and services. Among these are truck and trailer sales, real estate, barn buildings, pasture management, feed sales, training and instruction, insurance, veterinary care, equine hauling, tack, clothing, accommodations and equine retirement facilities. The county’s trail systems (Foothills Equestrian Trail Association, Collinsville Equestrian

Trail Association, North Pacolet and other systems), provide approximately 300 miles of trails and are nationally recognized. Polk County and upper Spartanburg County offer a unique package in that most other horse communities do not provide both equestrian competition venues and a trail system. EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES
