Knut Torpe, the founder of Ocoee Horseride, came to the U.S. from Norway in 2015. In his home country he ran a family owned horseback riding business his whole adult life. Knut’s father, Eirik Torpe, founded the rancho in 1965 welcoming visitors from all over Europe to come and horseback ride in the majestic mountains of Norway every summer. This has been Knut’s childhood growing up.
So, why Tennessee? After visiting TN Knut has quickly realized that the region has a large potential for this kind of business compared to colder climates of Norway. The Cleveland, Tennessee and Ocoee Region attract a large number of outdoor lovers coming here for whitewater rafting, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, hunting and now horseback riding.
