Each October, Tryon Riding & Hunt Club sponsors its Fall “Morris the Horse” Trials for eventers at the Foothills Equestrian and Nature Center (FENCE) in Tryon. This event typically attracts riders from as many as 13 states in western North Carolina and the Southeast.  In recent years, a College Cup Challenge has been held for college teams with 6-8 teams usually competing.

Divisions range from Starter to Preliminary and are open to professional and amateur riders. The XC course design is by Greg Schlappi and stadium jumping course design is by Robert Williamson. This event also requires the Club’s largest number of volunteers for any event all year.

NEW features for 2021! 

  • For the first time, we will be offering a PT level (Prelim Dressage/SJ, Training XC)
  • Two new awards will be offered courtesy of The Farm House – Master Amateur Award and Junior Low Score Award
  • A new Adult Team Challenge will be added
  • Free tack stall will be offered to the trainer bringing the most students
