Officials at the Tryon International Equestrian announced the addition of the Blue Ridge Mountain Horse Trials to the venue’s competition calendar on Sept. 14-15. It will include two days of national competition from beginner novice through advanced, including modified. All levels will run cross-country at the White Oak Course onsite, which was the host of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games eventing cross-country and driving marathon competitions. TIEC has hosted competitions such as the American Eventing Championships and The Fork at TIEC CCI 4*-S, and adds the Blue Ridge Mountain Horse Trials as a permanent fixture on the fall calendar to further expand offerings for the eventing community.
“We are pleased to add another eventing competition to our 2019 calendar, continuing our efforts to grow equestrian sport across all disciplines,” said Eric Straus, general manager of equine operations at TIEC. “We strongly believe that giving riders of all levels access to facilities of this caliber is critical to the growth and success of equestrian sport, and we welcome all competitors to compete with us in September.”
