Tryon International Equestrian Center has a history of striking out when it comes to weather for its eventing jogs. Remember those gale force winds at the 2018 WEG Tryon Test Event? And then, for WEG proper, the aftermath of an actual hurricane blew through in time for the final horse inspection — I’ll never forget Leslie Threlkeld valliantly captaining her trusty truck-turned-sea-vessel through flooded backroads to get us to the venue for that. Cut TIEC a break already, weather gods!

This week’s Tryon International 3-Day Event got off to a soggy start but things are looking up from here, with unseasonably warm temps in the mid-60s through upper 70s from Friday through the weekend. First, though, let’s take a look back through dressage day’s rainy prelude:

Update: The heavy rain has prompted the organizing team at Tryon to push all cross country scheduled for Friday to Saturday. Under the new scheduling, cross country will begin at 8:00 a.m. ET with the CCI2*L. The Buckeye Nutrition CCI4*L will start cross country at 10:10 a.m.. There is some additional rain on the forecast for tonight, but tomorrow is forecasted to be clearer which should, with any luck, dry out the cross country course a little in time for Saturday.
