For Immediate Release
Mill Spring, NC – June 1, 2021 – In celebration of the 93rd Tryon Spring 6/Tryon Riding & Hunt Club Charity Horse Show – the nation’s third oldest horse show – Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) is presenting a $500 “Trip of the Day” prize to the highest-scoring Hunter rider each day of the competition. In addition to the prize money, the daily top-scoring rider will also receive a special commemorative ribbon.
TIEC introduced the “Trip of the Day” prizes to the competition week in 2019 when Tryon Riding & Hunt Club’s historic horse show was officially named a “U.S. Equestrian Federation Heritage Show” – one of only 27 shows in the nation to earn such a designation.
This celebratory horse show week is distinguished by the use of traditional, old-style courses with natural style fences woven throughout. The featured class of the week is the $50,000 USHJA International Derby on Friday, June 11, and concludes on Sunday where division winners will be presented with TR&HC historic trophies like the Harry Brown trophy, on which their names will be engraved, plus a keepsake silver bowl to take home.
