The Spring Series is in full swing at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). The ever popular Saturday Night Lights is also in full swing. It is quite something to behold, so if you have not done so, do make a visit sooner rather than later. There truly is something for everyone there to enjoy!
The presence of such a facility in Polk County is nearly unfathomable to many long-term residents. The comments out in the community about the facility are impressive, especially those coming from those who are not involved or engrossed in the sport itself. It truly has that international flair, one resident stated. It is simply amazing said that same resident after a second visit, considering the number of restaurants that have opened and now the General Store.
According to the TIEC’s News of 05/24/2015, David Blake “piloted” Baron, earning another Grand Prix victory at the $25K Odom Engineering, PLLC Grand Prix at the Tryon Spring 5. Kelley Farmer and Baltimore took top honors in the $10K USHJA International Hunter Derby, while Trapp O’Neal and Quilona Z were victorious in the $25K Suncast Welcome Stake.
Competitors such as Farmer voice high praise for TIEC. Farmer recently was quoted, saying: “I cannot say enough good things about this horse show. The ring is fantastic, the footing is beautiful. I thought the jumps looked spectacular” (News, 5/24/2016). She loves showing at this venue and looks forward to her return in a few weeks.
Hope to see you there!
