Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) has announced today that it is excited to welcome the return of The Fork at TIEC Eventing competition on April 2-5, 2020. However, due to recent storm damage on the course, the Training, Novice and Beginner Novice Divisions for The Fork at TIEC will not be held this year.

Captain Mark Phillips visited TIEC this week to review the course conditions and begin the design phase. Phillips’ review confirmed that the course is in great shape to run the Modified, Preliminary, Intermediate, Advanced and FEI levels (CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S, CCI1*-S). Stay tuned to the TIEC website and Facebook page for event updates and course pictures in mid-March. TIEC looks forward to hosting all levels on the White Oak Course for the Blue Ridge Mountain H.T. on Sept. 12-13, 2020.

The Fork at TIEC will occur alongside Tryon Welcome 3 on April 2-5, which has recently been upgraded to A Hunters/Level 3 Jumpers. This upgraded rating brings all Tryon Welcome Series shows to the A or AA level, offering Hunter/Jumper competition from March 19 through April 12.

Both lodging and stall discounts are available if booked by March 10, with similar offers available for the Tryon Spring Series when booked by April 1. Visit to learn more.

EN Tip: Looking to re-route from The Fork at TIEC to another event in the Tryon area? FENCE H.T. in nearby Landrum, SC, takes place the following week, April 11-12, 2020. WindRidge Farm H.T. in Mooresboro, North NC, is also nearby, and takes place May 9-10.
