Every September the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) offers XC schooling at the Foothills Equestrian and Nature Center (FENCE). This is a US Eventing Association (USEA) registered activity. And, we are grateful to FENCE for sharing the course with us to make this happen. Riders particularly enjoy the opportunity to school the water complex as well as train over other jumps on the property. The jumps available are suitable for those up through Training level. The schooling will run from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25, 2022. The last registrations will be accepted at 2 p.m.
