Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) and Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) are pleased to announce that they have formed a partnership to manage and produce the 71st running of the Tryon Block House Races, the historic steeplechase of Tryon Riding & Hunt Club.

Under the newly-penned agreement, the Steeplechase will be held on April 15, 2017 – and in the future on the third Saturday in April. This year’s race will have a total purse of $150,000 – the highest in the history of the event – and will move from the race’s most recent venue, the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) where it has taken place since 1988, to a new one-mile track on 115 acres of land managed by TIEC, located at 6881 N.C. Highway 9 in Columbus, N.C.
