MAY 2024 5 MARCH


May has arrived in the foothills, bringing along its beautiful flowers on account of all those April showers. This is an awe-inspiring time of year here in our little slice of paradise; spring is one of my personal favorite times of the year! The wildflowers are in bloom, the weather is perfect and there are friendly folks out and about in every community.

In this issue, we’ll visit several locations that are not to be missed in our area this spring—or any time of year!

First, we meet with kind souls at Foothills Equestrian Nature Center, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. This facility has been serving the community as a resource for the preservation of green space and for educational and recreational opportunities since 1984, and now is the perfect time to visit and learn more about their programs and what FENCE offers.


Next, we’ll visit with the folks at The Sanctuary at Red Bell Run in the Green Creek area. More than just a haven for equines in need, Red Bell Run is a unique creation of Mary Adams. It offers tours of the grounds and boasts some of the most gorgeous views in the foothills. We’ll also learn more about Tryon Painters and Sculptors, founded by a group of local artists in 1968 to collaborate, support one another and promote art in the community.

And of course, we’ll catch up with our resident spokespony, Pebbles, and learn about the trails and labyrinth at Adawehi in Columbus!

You’ll find all of this and more in our May issue! We hope you enjoy what we’ve put together for you this month, and as I do each month, I encourage readers to reach out and help us share your story. Email me at with any thoughts or ideas for upcoming issues. As always, thanks for reading!

Each month you’ll be introduced to something in our area that’s worth some exploration. Some of these will be familiar, but perhaps you’ve never been or haven’t been in years. And others might be things you have never heard of or thought to visit. All of these will be family-friendly and either free or inexpensive. Get out there!


Adawehi has been part of the Polk County scene for over 25 years, but few folks know that visitors are invited to come visit including exploring their hiking trails and spending some quiet reflective time walking the Adawehi Labyrinth.

There are two trails that can be combined to make for a longer hike. The Loop Trail is relatively flat and starts from the Community Building parking lot. The Loop Trail passes the labyrinth and eventually follows White Oak Creek, past a bamboo forest, and back to the beginning point. It is a little less than a mile for the total loop. The Hill Trail, as the name implies, involves a bit more physical exertion and adds a little more distance. You can start the Hill Trail at the Adawehi Healing Center parking area off Smith Dairy Road, or take the Loop Trail to get to the Hill Trail intersection. Both trails are suitable for families.


Even though Adawehi will celebrate World Labyrinth Day with thousands of others on May 4, there’s a good chance you missed out this year. It’s held on the first Saturday of each May. Visitors are welcome to walk the Adawehi Labyrinth any day of the year, even if you don’t want to hike the trail.

If you’re unfamiliar with a labyrinth, it’s a single winding path that starts around the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. They can help quiet the mind, calm anxieties, recover balance in life, and reduce stress as just some of the benefits.

All labyrinths are meant to be walked quietly and without talking. Visitors to the labyrinth at Adawehi are asked to walk quietly and respectfully. Dogs, even on leashes, aren’t permitted on the labyrinth. You can leave them at home on the day you wish to walk the labyrinth or leash them to any of hundreds of nearby trees. Friendly and leashed dogs are welcome on the hiking trails.

The Adawehi Loop Trail follows White Oak Creek for part of the distance with some nice mountain views.

Parking for the trails is below the Community Building which also houses the shops.


You can also check out the small shops in the Community Building which includes Adawehi Gift Shop, Unique Boutique, and Book Nook. Most of the items are handmade and some are crafted out of recycled items. Across from the Community Building is Beneficial Foods Organic Grocery, an inviting healthy foods store that has been rated one of the best in the state. The shops and Beneficial Foods are open every day except Sundays. You won’t need a trail map, but they are available in Beneficial Foods.


Adawehi is located at 93 Adawehi Lane, Columbus, NC.

The trails are open year-round during daylight hours. There are no restrooms along the trail, so go before you arrive. Adawehi is a private property open to the public to enjoy. There aren’t many private places as welcoming as this one. Please treat the property with respect. Of course, children need to be supervised and stay with their parents.

The Legacy of a Tryon Staple

Story and photography by Emily Williams

Forty years ago, five residents of Polk County set their community on a course to fall in love with nature. In 1984, Paul Culberson, Jim Flack, Gus Hoffman, Dave Kirby and Tom Moore started the nonprofit known as the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center, or FENCE. Since the organization’s

conception, FENCE has grown from its 117 acres donated by the Mahler family to 384 acres of conservation land that boasts beautiful hiking trails, hosts educational programs and events, and houses a renowned equestrian center. To celebrate FENCE’s 40th anniversary, Executive Director Tracie Hanson and some original

FENCE members share about the organization’s growth and its impact on the surrounding community.

Since its beginning, the mission of the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center has been “to serve as a community resource for the preservation of green space and for educational and recreational

opportunities linking nature, animals, and people.” Nancy Mahler has been involved in seeing this mission fulfilled since her mother-in-law, Carol Mahler, donated the original acreage and equestrian site to the five founding fathers. According to Nancy, Mrs. Carol Mahler only had one condition if these men were to inherit her land: they must always keep the property available and usable for their local community. Since that day, Nancy and her husband, Pete, have ensured that FENCE continues to uphold its promise to Mrs. Mahler.

For the past twenty years, Tracie Hanson has also seen the organization live out its original vision firsthand. Starting as a teacher for their educational program, Project FENCE, in the early 2000s and transitioning to the role of Executive Director in 2013, Tracie has been heavily involved in each program

that makes FENCE valuable to the Foothills.

Just as Mrs. Mahler would have wanted, FENCE boasts programs for everyone, be they equestrian lovers or nature fanatics. For students, the organization hosts six day camps each summer to teach children about horses, nature or art. During the school year, the nonprofit runs Project FENCE, a program where their teacher goes to five counties in the Foothills and Upstate to teach kids about nature. Thanks to the Kirby Fund and the Polk County Community Foundation, FENCE also offers free hiking trails, concerts and educational talks.

John Vining, who served on the FENCE Nature Committee from 1984 to 1987 and the FENCE Board from 2018 to 2022, especially enjoys the organization’s special events like Go Fly a Kite Day and Celebrate

Nature Day, annual events that often attract four- to five-hundred community members.

“These are the types of events that make FENCE a special place for the Polk County community at large. Anyone can attend, and those who do are expected to participate,” says Vining.

First an equestrian center, FENCE still provides space for equestrian-related events such as open horse shows, rodeos and steeplechases, which are either hosted by the nonprofit or anyone who rents the venue. The proceeds from these affordable events go directly to financing the free programs offered at FENCE.

FENCE itself is not the only one celebrating an anniversary this year–so is one of its most beloved programs. Twenty years ago, Therapeutic Riding of Tryon (TROT) was started at FENCE by Norm TROT student going for a ride

Powers to empower those with certain physical and mental challenges through riding horses. As of today, the program has grown to forty students and seventy volunteers for their Spring and Fall sessions, which is a testament to the positive expansion of FENCE as a whole.

Each program, though,

would not be possible without the devoted sponsors and volunteers associated with the organization. “We don’t receive any government funding,” shares Tracie. “Our supporters, donors, and volunteers really are the nuts and bolts that make FENCE go ‘round.”

Jean Wright, who became a board member when she

moved here in the early nineties, saw firsthand how members of the Tryon community “gave their talents and some degree of their treasure to help FENCE become sustainable,” often remaining in the background without any desire for acknowledgment or accolade. Without these people who sacrifice their time, talents,

and finances, nonprofits like FENCE could not be successful. FENCE certainly has become successful, which is why it is such a staple of the Tryon area. “I think we have been a huge asset to the community, especially during the infamous COVID years,” says Tracie. “We were a safe haven for people to

MAY 2024 19
Go Fly a Kite Day at FENCE

come and get outside, breathe fresh air, and not be with crowds of people or stuck indoors.” John Vining agrees that the “usage of the grounds increased during the COVID pandemic and was a huge respite for many citizens.”

Tracie believes FENCE’s commitment to providing a safe space during the pandemic confirms, “We’re here for the community, and we’re about the community.”

Jean Wright concurs that FENCE is a place that welcomes its community with open arms through both seasons of difficulty and seasons of flourishing. “I am grateful that FENCE has weathered major challenges, maintaining its core values and purpose while evolving and adapting,” she shares.

Forty years is only the beginning for this aspirational nonprofit; they know there are always ways to grow to better serve the community,

20 LIFE IN OUR FOOTHILLS 54 McFarland Drive Hwy. 108 Tryon, NC 28782 (828) 859-9341
FENCE’s TROT facility

and their endowments from the Kirby Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation are making their dreams for growth a reality.

“Our strategic plan is forever growing,” Tracie says. “We’re always into taking on new ideas and new programming.” One new program is EASE, or Equine Assisted Senior Engagement. This program will aid those struggling with dementia, Parkinson’s and other cognitive diseases by connecting them to the therapeutic power provided by horses.

As this beloved Tryon institution continues to grow and change, the things that make it special never will.

“I love watching the smiles and pride of TROT students, families, volunteers and even the horses,” states Jean. “I love seeing the smiles and enthusiasm at the Open shows . . . I love seeing the school

kids and campers running down a nature trail marveling at the birds, the caterpillars, and passing horses. I love walking across the pond boardwalk watching the turtles and the dragonflies. I love seeing dogs and their owners walking the hills.”

Without a doubt, there is so much to love about FENCE. Dave Kirby, one of FENCE’s founding fathers, was often quoted saying, “If you love nature, love it at FENCE.” FENCE is a truly special place for people to visit and experience the beauty of nature to its fullest. For forty years, it has been a refuge for anyone who is looking for a space to distance himself or herself from the hectic realities of life and bask in a moment of tranquility. The future of FENCE is promising as the organization continues to meet the needs of its community by being caring,

generous and loving to this little slice of earth.

FENCE is taking the entire year to celebrate their momentous anniversary. On April 28, the venue hosted its 40th Year Anniversary Bash, a free event for the whole community to enjoy food, games, live music, touch-a-truck experiences, and more. On September 7, the organization will reintroduce its Moon

Howl concert featuring the Dirty South Band, with opening performances by Kayla McKinney and the Twisted Trail Band. Finally, on October 12, FENCE is hosting a formal ticketed event under their covered arena.

Red Bell Run

A Haven and Home to Equines in Need

Aride through the Sanctuary at Red Bell Run quickly becomes a roller coaster of emotion for ardent animal lovers and fans of equines in all shapes and sizes. The first emotion to hit is admiration for owner Mary Adams and her team of devoted employees and volunteers. It’s obvious the equines are not the only ones with big hearts roaming the grounds at 385 Blackwood Rd. in Columbus.

The Sanctuary, a unique creation of Mary Adams, stands out from other 501(c)3

charitable organizations with its mission to provide a haven and care for equines. This one-of-a-kind Sanctuary, a rarity in the country where only a few others exist, offers individualized care to over 150 equines, giving them a home that caters to their breeds and personalities. Animals arrive through animal control seizures or occasionally at the recommendation of a veterinarian.

The second emotion to hit is awe at the land’s beauty and infrastructure, constructed and meticulously maintained for such a noble purpose. The Sanctuary is built upon a 200acre property with a 40-acre working vineyard, housing, and pastures for the rescued equines from all across the country and beyond.

Adams and her crew collaborate with several rescues across the United States to provide a home for

equines often considered unadoptable or needing end-of-life care. Among the equines residing at Red Bell Run are ponies, donkeys, hinnies and even a Somali wild ass, along with a plethora of horses ranging from draft mules to mammoth donkeys. Each resident is taken care of medically and socially in a manner solely for the animal’s needs, every step being taken to ensure they live comfortable, happy lives by the staff, whom the equines often adore as much as their caretakers adore them.

The memories of the Sanctuary are also available to take home with the Red Bell Run Calendar and other items available in their gift shop.

“We have every different personality you can think of,” Adams says. “I have some wild ones, some calm ones, sweet and loving ones, and some that don’t want to just stand in their presence.”

It is often said, “A vineyard is a sanctuary where nature and human ingenuity intertwine,” making the Vineyard at Red Bell Run a perfect metaphor for the work being done at the Sanctuary, as the same forces of nature and ingenuity are at work. One

of the largest active vineyards in Polk County, it grows several varieties of grapes, including Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Pinot Grigio. However, it does not make wine. Mountain Brook Vineyards of Tryon makes the wine. The combination of the views from the

vineyard creates feelings of peacefulness and inspiration while also serving as a brilliant spot for a photo opportunity. Above the property sits a louvered cupola showcasing the red bell, the Sanctuary’s namesake. The red bell is a replica of the one from the train

Each equine is well-groomed and well-taken care of. The equines know they are the stars of the show. Time for a snack.

Adams’s father often rode as a young man growing up in Florida. Adams relocated to the Foothills from Florida, having become familiar with the area as a young woman spending summers in Highlands.

She has quickly become an integral part of the community, allowing charities to use her home. She lives on the property and works with other local charities and foundations. They offer free tours to groups and individuals and have a monthly reading program with the rescue program for K-6 graders.

It’s clear Adams and her staff have expertise on the various breeds. The sanctuary is built like a community around each equine’s social and medical needs. Adequate time and thought are put into helping each one adjust when they arrive and thrive once there.

Adams says, “We do a lot to help them settle in. We give them water wherever they want it, food wherever they want it, and let them do what they want to do when they want to do it. This helps them become settled in their environment and build a routine.”

The barns are named to fit their tenants and are filled with strong-willed, well-groomed, and adorable residents, the stars of the Sanctuary. With names like Highway Joe, Millie, Clara and Pinto Bean, all of the equines shine in different ways and have stories that showcase the importance of the Sanctuary’s mission. Stories that thankfully have happy endings, thanks to Mary Adams.

Upon arrival, visitors see the Mini Woods, the home to mini mules, hinnies and one miniature horse, where the wild bunch lives on a

modified “track system.” Mini Heaven is their barn, home to special needs miniature horses. Most of the minis in this village require intensive care, treatment and medications. The Mini Sugar Shack is home to miniature horses, while Silo Barn is home to almost one of each type of equine. Trailside is their original nursery barn. Centerview overlooks the pastures on the north side of the upper farm and is home to their Hackney ponies. Hee Haw Hideaway is home to their miniature donkey herds. Villa Roja is the original special needs barn. Hilltop Barn is home to the larger draft horses and Mountain View to the draft mules. Millie’s Manor, Longears Villas, Roadside Inn and Critters Corner are each specialized for certain breeds ranging from young to old, with some residents over 30 and even 40 years old.

The organization and care for every animal is meticulous.

Of course, there is a touch of sadness when one passes the Memorial Garden, which is filled with the beloved residents who have passed on but are still well remembered.

Mary Adams and her team have created a community that inspires all who visit. The sanctuary is not just a home for animals but a place of hope, where animals in need of care find a home filled with compassion and care.

Red Bell Run Sanctuary radiates positivity and empathy, which Adams and her team share. It is a testament to the power of love and a reminder that we are all in this together. A visit to Red Bell Run Sanctuary is an experience you will never forget.

Contributing to the quality of life in Tryon through art

Story and photography by Clay Johnson

Additional photos courtesy of Tryon Painters and Sculptors

Patti Miles-Cooner began dabbling in art as a child growing up in Atlanta, first drawing and painting and then working with clay.

“I love clay because you get your hands on it and you take just a raw slab, a lump of clay and the next thing you know you’ve made a bird,” she says.

Miles-Conner has lived on a farm near Gowensville, South Carolina for nearly 35 years. During that time she’s ridden horses in hunter-jumper and dressage competitions, hunted with Greenville County Hounds, and entered her Labrador retrievers in American Kennel Club agility and obedience competitions.

“You become a team. It’s more than just owning a dog and feeding a dog, and the horses become a part of your life especially when you have them at your farm,” she says.

That passion for horses and dogs is reflected in Miles-Cooner’s work as an artist, which she continued into adulthood.

“They all have collided together,” she muses.

Miles-Cooner does large and small clay sculptures of mostly dogs and horses using a plastering technique that she developed on her own. Her paintings reflect mostly the same themes as her sculptures. She’s perfected her painting of dogs to the point that people commission her to do portraits of their dogs.

“I compete with dogs, so I know a lot of dog people,” she says.

Miles-Cooner’s artistic passion took a pivotal turn in December 2011 when she and her husband Bill came to Tryon for the Christmas stroll and walked into Tryon Painters and Sculptors.

“The next thing I knew I was joining and I started in January of 2012 taking classes and going when I could because I worked full time,” says Miles-Cooner, who was a pharmaceutical sales

representative. “Then they talked me into putting things into the gallery, and I did, and I sold, and it just blossomed from there. It’s a very good environment for new artists, and they really help you.”

A group of local artists founded TPS in 1968 to collaborate, support one another and promote art in the community.

“Our mission is to bring an appreciation of the fine arts to the community, and the influence art has on the quality of life in the community,” says Cornelia Scibetta, who became the organization’s president in January. “We do that through providing education so we have a 2-D and 3-D studio downstairs where artists can work and we can also provide classes.”

In addition to classes, TPS provides gallery space where artists can show and sell their work and there’s also a gift shop that takes artists’

“We didn’t get here by standing still. There’s always that importance of looking at what’s on the horizon and where we are today and where we want to be, and we want to continue to be the place where locals can develop their art and perfect it and display it and develop their confidence and hopefully sell a few pieces, but it’s mostly about contributing to the quality of life in Tryon through art.”

work on consignment. Commissions from the sales of art, membership fees, private donations and support from the Polk County Community Foundation keep the non-profit organization afloat. TPS has three paid, part-time positions but the board is all volunteer, and the members volunteer too.

“With every exhibit, we have volunteers who are our hanging team so they curate and hang each show so that’s a two-day process that’s actually kind of fun,” says Scibetta. “We have a good time doing that.”

There are 200 members and seven times a year there’s a new exhibit featuring their work. Scibetta says each member contributes one piece of art to each exhibit with about 75 artists submitting each time.

While their own missions are all a little different, Scibetta says TPS often works in collaboration with the Tryon Fine Arts Center, the Tryon Arts and Crafts School and Upstairs Artspace with the leaders of each organization meeting about once a month to brainstorm ways to help and support each other.

“Tryon is a small place and we all feel like we’re better when we’re working together rather than competing,” says Scibetta.

TPS hit a milestone in 2022 when it paid off the mortgage on the building it occupies at 79 North Trade Street, and it’s hitting another milestone this year by hiring its first executive director.

“We didn’t get here by standing still,” says Scibetta. “There’s always that importance of looking at what’s on the horizon and where we are today and where we want to be, and we want

to continue to be the place where locals can develop their art and perfect it and display it and develop their confidence and hopefully sell a few pieces, but it’s mostly about contributing to the quality of life in Tryon through art.”

Miles-Cooner says TPS’s mission of helping artists develop confidence and connect with each other is important for a group of people who can sometimes be a bit reclusive.

“It’s given me connections. It’s given me new friendships,” says Miles-Cooner about regularly getting together with other TPS artists. “To go someplace and be with other people just makes you more creative. You steal shamelessly from each other and learn from each other and make it your own. It’s just a real growing process and it’s a lot of fun. It inspires you to do more and be better.”

Our Golden Horses

It is said that all that glitters is not gold. Well, that may be true in some instances, but we have had some sparkling palomino equines among us. I am a true chocolate palomino, rarer and more eye-catching than the lighter

version. However, the golden type of my unique coloring can turn some heads.

In our rescue, Helping Equines Regain Dignity (HERD), we do not save a horse by picking a specific color or a breed type. We focus on

those who need our help the most in that instant. The horses at last call. The ones that have no hope of another good path forward out of danger, whether it be an owner surrender, auction interception, or pulling from a kill pen.

Some of our intakes are newborn foals clinging to their protective mothers. Other horses we save are unhandled, overlooked or more mature but discharged as they are no longer in good condition or have an injury that needs addressing by a professional veterinarian. We are compelled to help these lost souls when we have room to house and care for them. It is our mission to rehabilitate these down-ontheir-luck horses to find them a good home.

Over the years, we have rescued only a handful of palominos. The first was a registered quarter horse. He was a young cryptorchid colt, which we named Oro, Spanish for gold, as at the time we did not know his registered name, Bandit Rhomey. Oro has stuck as his permanent barn name as it suits him so well, and he comes flying across the field when he is called.

The second was another registered appaloosa named

Gold Dust Showdown. This young gelding looked like he had been dragged through a war zone as he was so beaten up with bloody sores all over his emaciated body. The third palomino we named Mason. A stout quarter horse, he had been a barrel racer. His new owner renamed him Rush.

Most recently we saved Mister Fred. Our vet watched him move, examined his head and body, and declared that Fred was likely a Missouri Fox Trotter. Possibly a purebred horse, he came with no registration papers to confirm it. He had fallen in a livestock trailer and had been trampled by other horses, nearly to death, sustaining some serious leg wounds.

There are many different breeds of horses that can be palominos. The color varies as well, ranging from a very light, almost white, coat to a very deep chocolate color, like me! Only three breeds of horses do not have the palomino

coloring: the Andalusian, the Lipizzaner, and the Arabian.

A palomino horse in fine form is a beauty to behold. Its snow-white mane and tail contrast with a beautiful golden body, often sporting glorious dapples. This color was made most famous by Roy Rogers who chose a palomino horse, Trigger, for his movie series. Who among you also remembers the handsome talking horse, Mr. Ed, who advised his architect owner, Wilbur?

“A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course.”

That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed. Mister Ed shared his words of wisdom only with Wilbur, his hapless owner.

Our Mister Fred also has a big personality. He moves his lips as if to speak at feed time. “Over here please, bring me that alfalfa hay and grain!” He adores being groomed and enjoys his time out riding and

exploring the scenery. Fred is brave, willing, and a “steady Eddy” for only being age six. He is presently in training to find a new home. His ideal job is easy trail riding as he did sustain some injuries to his legs that will limit his scope of endurance work. His perfect vocations include obstacle challenge courses and exploring the state parks at a nice smooth pace. Missouri Fox Trotters are known for being great trail mounts. They were bred to tackle the terrain of the Ozark mountains in the early 19th century.

Former HERD horse, Rush, found his perfect new career a few years ago. His owner Tracie Williams Parker has conditioned him to become an outstanding endurance mount. She and Rush have competed and placed well over long rides in mountainous terrain. They have developed an amazing partnership. Rush has completed over 300 miles

two North America Trail Ride Conference events, and many miles of hunter-pace rides.

Gold Dust developed into an incredibly talented jumper. He was naturally a lovely mover with long, lowreaching strides. Best of all, Gold Dust was a dependable family mount, safe for any age to ride. Unfortunately, he perished in a freak pasture accident, falling on slick ice during the winter. He crossed over the rainbow bridge quickly, which was heartbreaking for us and the family who adopted him from HERD.

In conclusion, there is the fabulous life of Oro, HERD’s premier palomino. This lucky horse was adopted by Jennifer Demyanovich as a three-yearold once he was back to ride. Jennifer took him home to a lovely dressage-oriented farm in New Hampshire. Oro saw Oro sporting his spring coat.

her through some tough times in her life and kept her focused on her riding and personal interests. This stunning horse has scored well repeatedly in dressage competitions with his dedicated mistress. He is so well-loved and appreciated. It is hard to believe we saved him at the last call from a Texas kill pen that ships horses to Mexico every week for slaughter. Oro has some thoroughbred ancestors in his pedigree which accounts for his size and brilliant movement. His palomino coloring truly sets him apart in the crowd.

It is fitting to say that HERD found a pot of gold multiple times with these palomino horses. It has been very rewarding to witness their transformations. Despite losing sweet Gold Dust, we are blessed to have the remaining golden boys shining brightly representing HERD everywhere they go to perform.
