The latest weather forecast from the National Weather Service, which has an onsite weather station here at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), shows heavy rain starting on Saturday evening through Sunday. As a result, it is planned to move the final jumping phase for eventing to Monday, September 17 (starting time to be confirmed).
Saturday’s cross-country remains unaffected and will start at 11:00 a.m. as planned, but the interval between horses will be reduced from four to three minutes. The cross-country distance is unchanged at 5,700 meters, but there are modifications to two fences (23A and 24B).
Starting times for the eventing horse inspection and eventing jumping will be confirmed as soon as possible.
Ticket holders will be notified by email and social media.
Any further updates will be posted on the Tryon2018 website.
