The Tryon Horse and Hound Show brings back to Tryon one of the Club’s oldest historical events. The oldest program in our records is for a show in 1935! There is a reference to a first show in 1928 but we have not been able to find any actual records.
In recent times, the Club desired to re-establish the old tradition and so a Horse show was held in 2018 (and then again in 2019) and was the first club-sponsored horse show at Harmon Field since the 1980’s. In 2020, plans to add a hound show to the horse show were cancelled due to the pandemic. However, in June of 2020, a few fox hunting clubs decided to get together and hold a small, informal puppy show with full Covid precautions as a test event and this was concluded successfully.
On April 24, 2021, for the first time in many years, we are planning a full Horse and Hound Show at FENCE. The Hound Show will take place in the morning and a Hunter Derby with two ability level classes will be held in the afternoon.
