The schedule includes individual and squad compulsories on Tuesday, Sept.18, with Nations Cup team freestyle medals, individual and pas de deux freestyle competitions taking place on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Thursday, Sept. 20 features pas de deux freestyle medals competition, squad freestyle competition for non-Nations Cup teams and individual technical competition ahead of Saturday’s individual and squad medals competition to conclude the discipline on Sept. 22.

For equestrians, socialites and outdoor adventurers alike, Tryon Resort offers an exciting and enriching calendar without sacrificing the best that Western North Carolina culture has to offer in beauty and charm, first discovered and enjoyed by equestrians.


“With the regional, national, and international appeal of the exciting Tryon Resort now becoming a reality, we’re excited to partner with Tryon Equestrian Partners offering this world class lifestyle community,” said Reed Jackson, Managing Partner, Christie’s-North Carolina. “The resort’s dynamic location in close proximity to the emerging Asheville, Greenville and Charlotte markets, along with its great climate and spectacular setting, make it an ideal destination for outdoor and equestrian enthusiasts.”

Estimated to be completed April 2019, real estate sales at Tryon Village will include the pre-sale of 55 condos located inside the Tryon Village Hotel, known as The Residences at Tryon Village. Additional properties include nearly 100 luxury farmettes in White Oak at Tryon Resort, as well as The Farms at Tryon Resort, which are just five minutes from the show grounds and feature lots ranging in size from eight to 25 acres.

“We are thrilled to begin our partnership with Christie’s International Real Estate,” said Mark Bellissimo, managing partner of Tryon Equestrian Partners and CEO of Tryon International Equestrian Center. “As we look forward to the robust development of Tryon Resort, we eagerly anticipate a profound interest from all of those individuals who wish to start a vibrant new chapter of their lives and enjoy a lifestyle rooted in the love of horses. As title sponsor of the vaulting discipline at the Games, Christie’s is beginning this journey into Tryon Resort with true equestrian elegance and style.”
