Tryon Horse Farms Equestrian Resources
An area rich in equestrian traditions
The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club puts on several events every year, best known being the Blockhouse Steeplechase Races in April and the Tryon Horse Show in May. Primary aim of the Club is to promote horsemanship of all kinds in the area, and to that end the TR&HC sponsors many junior events.
The Green Creek Hounds and Tryon Hounds in Polk County, NC have been hunting for years over the miles of rolling, wooded land here, with its post and rail fences and ditches.
Foothills Equestrian and Nature Center, Inc. (FENCE) is the site of the TR&HC Spring Steeplechase and many other equestrian events, and is home to the Carolina Carriage Club. A unique facility, which has miles of wooded hiking and walking trails, FENCE also offers educational programs for area schools as well as adult classes in bird watching, wildflowers and nature subjects.
Currently under construction is the Green Creek Equestrian Park, on almost 100 acres. The eco-friendly equine park will be the future home of the Blockhouse Steeplechase Races and Tryon Riding & Hunt Club's 'A' rated horse shows. This horse facility is expected to attract larger shows to the community.
