Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) is excited to welcome the return of The Fork at TIEC Eventing competition on April 2-5, 2020. However, due to recent storm damage on the course, the Training, Novice and Beginner Novice Divisions for The Fork at TIEC will not be held this year.
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 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 September 12-13, 2020.
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.
Both lodging and stall discounts are available if booked by March 10, with similar offers available for the Tryon Spring Series when booked by April 1. Visit Tryon.com/Compete to learn more.

Did you know that there are over 53,000 wild mustangs in holding facilities across the United States? My mustang journey began in February 2018 after losing my heart horse whom I had just shy of 20 years. I wanted another horse of color, and my friend sent me the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) internet adoption link. I was amazed at all of the horses available on the internet auction, but I quickly fell in love with Woodrow. I learned that he was a popular band stallion in Wyoming and had been followed by photographers for close to three years.
