Due to recent storm damage on the course, officials from the Tryon International Equestrian Center announced Feb. 28 that the training, novice and beginner novice divisions will not be held during The Fork at TIEC eventing competition on April 2-5 this year.
Course designer Captain Mark Phillips visited TIEC this week to review the course conditions and begin the design phase. Phillips’ review confirmed that the course is in great shape to run the modified, preliminary, intermediate, advanced and FEI levels.
Stay tuned to the TIEC website at http://Tryon.com/Eventing and Facebook page for event updates and course pictures in mid-March. TIEC looks forward to hosting all levels on the White Oak Course for the Blue Ridge Mountain Horse Trials on Sept. 12-13.
The Fork at TIEC will occur alongside Tryon Welcome 3 on April 2-5, which has recently been upgraded to A hunters/Level 3 jumpers. This upgraded rating brings all Tryon Welcome Series shows to the A or AA level, offering hunter/jumper competition from March 19 through April 12.
