About The Fork at TIEC

Fifteen years ago, Jim and Bernadette Cogdell created The Fork Horse Trials at their facility in Norwood, North Carolina. It has since grown into one of the most prestigious Eventing competitions on the North American calendar. While remaining in its home state, The Fork Horse Trials will be relocating to Mill Spring in April 2017. The move will not only secure the event’s future, but elevate the level of competition and enhance the fan experience by taking advantage of the spectator-friendly Tryon International Equestrian Center.

The sixteen hundred acre Tryon Resort integrates the state-of-the-art Equestrian Center with vast recreational splendor and resort amenities. The venue has eight all-weather rings and six grass arenas that utilize the latest in turf technology. The 6,000-seat lighted main arena features top level international Dressage and Show Jumping competitions. A world-class cross country course, the current home of the American Eventing Championships, is capable of supporting a four-star cross country event and traverses scenic streams and the undulating landscape of a converted 18-hole golf course.

CIC 3* and Advanced competitors coming to The Fork at Tryon event in April will be the first to experience the extended turf course designed by Captain Mark Phillips and Tremaine Cooper.

The Tryon International Equestrian Center has twelve-hundred permanent stalls, open work areas for horses, elevated viewing decks for spectators, climate-controlled shade pavilions, and permanent restrooms conveniently located throughout. Multiple restaurants, including flagship Roger’s Diner, provide guests with a variety of dining experiences including Campagna Italian Cuisine, Legends Grille, and Blue Ginger Sushi. Retail boutiques located throughout the property offer a wide range products for an enjoyable shopping experience.

Onsite accommodation choices include 2,600 square foot, three- and five-bedroom log cabins, luxurious multi-bedroom homes, one bedroom cottages, a 50-room motel, and an RV park with a lodge that includes a recreation room, fitness center, laundry and showers.
