The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center management, staff and board have decided to cancel the 2012 spring horse trials.
Although it was not an easy choice, the final decision was based on the financial aspects and lack of interest in the event. A press release from FENCE cited looming fuel prices and the number of other events in the region as reasons for the cancellation. Because entries hadn’t opened, FENCE encouraged competitors to take advantage of other opportunities that weekend.
The horse trials were scheduled for March 31-April 1 in Tryon, N.C. FENCE will reorganize the committees and look at next year's calendar, sponsors and volunteer base before making a decision about the 2013 horse trials.
