CANCELLED: 48th Annual “Morris the Horse” Trials

MORRIS THE HORSE TRIALS CANCELLED
Regretfully, Tryon Riding and Hunt Club has cancelled this year’s Morris the Horse Trials. This event was scheduled for October 21 and 22, at the Foothills Equestrian and Nature Center in Tryon.
Road construction is ongoing at the I26 Overpass between the two “sides” of the venue and will continue into November. Cross Country Riders and their horses would need to be able to safely navigate between FENCE’s facilities on both sides of the property – which would mean going through the construction zone.
Tryon Riding and Hunt Club is committed to a safe and welcoming experience for our riders and horses. After considering alternatives and learning about the construction plans, the decision was made to cancel the event. We truly regret having to do this as we know many people will be disappointed. However safety concerns and uncertainty about our ability to deliver an event at the standard we aim for, led us to make this difficult decision.
