President's Corner - October / November 2019
It’s been a busy month at TRHC with the 44
Annual Horse Trials consuming most of my time. This is the third straight year I’ve managed the show for the Club. There are a lot of moving parts to pull it off every year but we had another very successful event with 112 entries. The only excitement was the one loose horse who didn’t want to be caught following a XC fall by the very first rider on course. We finally corralled him about a half mile down Hunting Country Rd. Fortunately, rider and horse were just fine!
Other upcoming events include the Any and All Dog Show next up on November 10 and we’re starting to plan a busy December. TRHC will once again hang the traditional Christmas wreath on Morris to kick off the Tryon Christmas Stroll on Friday, December 6 and some of our Board members have been invited to lead Parade Morris during the Tryon Christmas Parade on Wednesday, December 11. Our mini-horse mascot Hermione, dressed in her Christmas "greens", will be present at both events. The Annual Meeting for Members Only will be Tuesday, December 10. Details on all these events later in the newsletter.
Finally, in a Steeplechase update, the grass continues to grow well on the course and we have observed almost daily watering from the new irrigation system during those dry months of August and September. The exclusive ticket sale for TRHC Members will begin December 1. Watch for it.
