Tryon Horse and Hound Show

Apr 24, 2021 ALL DAY

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.
