Last day to enter, March 26

The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) horse trials competition set for April 12 thru the April 14 is filling up fast.

Potential participants have until March 26 to get in their entries. The course layout is brand new with no downhill jumping and all the jumps have been refurbished.

“Combine the refreshed cross country course with top quality judges and a great atmosphere and you and your equine partner are guaranteed to have a great time,” said FENCE director Carrie Knox. “Plan to attend the wine and cheese cross country course walk on Friday night and the full dinner on Saturday night. Enjoy lovely hiking trails, bird watching and more during your down time. Experience the hospitality and good weather of the North Carolina foothills and check out the charming towns of Tryon and Landrum.”

Event organizer Pat Salomon says, “For all you intro riders we are offering a special deal! You can compete without paying any big association fees, yet experience the excitement and professionalism of a recognized event.”

Contact show manager Margo Savage at redgate@windstream.net or show secretary KC Betzel at betzelfarm@hotmail.com for more information.

FENCE is located in the rolling hills of western North Carolina near Tryon. For more information about FENCE call 828-859-9021 or click www.fence.org.
