The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club Horse Trials is excited to host their first intercollegiate team challenge during the fall event on October 21-22, 2017. The event takes place at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center in Landrum, S.C. in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Teams should consist of three or four riders riding at any level. Coefficients will be applied to each individual score to account for level of difficulty. The best three scores will be added together to determine a team score and the lowest summed score will be the winner. Special prizes will be awarded to all members of the winning collegiate team.
All participating collegiate teams will be stabled together, and there will be a stall decorating contest. Students are invited to bring flags, banners, and more to decorate their stable area with their school colors.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to compete in a traditional long format Three-Day Event? Can you imagine the thrill of three additional phases leading into cross-country? In the early 2000s, eventing began to shift away from long format events and toward modern short-format competitions. Not all is lost though! The United States Eventing Association (USEA) created the USEA Classic Series to give riders a taste of the old school experience. These competitions preserve eventing’s history and allow riders at the Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels to take on the challenge of traditional long format events.
