As part of the 83rd Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) Charity Horse Show on Sunday, June 5, TR&HC will be holding a Charity Jumper Class.

Held on the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center show grounds, which has recently undergone major renovations, this event will enable TR&HC to continue its tradition of giving back to the community. All Polk County and Landrum area non-profit organizations are invited to submit applications to participate. Eight charities will be randomly selected and announced during the 1st Tryon Summer Premiere Horse Show at Harmon Field on May 28.

A jumper team consisting of one professional and one amateur rider will be drawn at a later time to represent the selected charities. Everyone is a winner in this event where the charity matched with the winning team will win $1,250 with a sliding scale where even the eighth place finisher will win $350 for its assigned charity.
