From The Campaign Trail: Tyron International Equestrian Center
I had the pleasure of visiting the Tyron International Equestrian Center. The campus was beautiful as were the horses. The center is a gem of NC10. There is true community here that reaches out to the entire world. As your congresswoman I would protect the interests of our community and continue to support this shining example of what western North Carolina can be.
From the website:
Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) has quickly become an international hub for many of the world’s top equestrian athletes. We welcomes guests 365 days a year to watch, dine, shop, and experience one of the premier riding facilities in the world built for the love of horses and our sport.
Watch riders and horses from all over the United States compete at TIEC from the comfort of our elevated viewing areas around each ring with ample shade and seating. We designed them with spectators in mind! Admission to all of our horse shows is free and open to the public with complimentary parking. Competitions generally start at 8am and wind down in the late afternoon through 5pm. Click here for our event calendar to find out when the next show is! If you’ve never been to a horse show before, you might also find our FAQ section and Horse Show 101 page helpful.
During non-competition weeks, Tryon hosts other events including festivals and concerts. Come out to the facility, enjoy the views, and grab a bite to eat any day of the year! We encourage you to follow us on Facebook to stay informed on upcoming performances and special events!
“Saturday Night Lights” is a Grand Prix equestrian event featuring food, fun, live music, and the highest level of competitive show jumping on select Saturday evenings throughout the year. Bring the whole family: admission, parking and carousel rides are all free! For more information on our favorite event of the week, click here.
