TRHC accepting applications for second Charity Jumper Challenge

Published 10:14 am Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Polk County and Landrum area nonprofit organizations are invited to submit applications for the second $5,000 Tryon Riding & Hunt Club Charity Jumper Challenge. The class will take place on Friday, June 8 during the 84th TR&HC Charity Horse Show under the lights in the main ring.
Interested charities should submit an application, available at, along with a copy of their tax-exempt status by Friday, June 1. The random drawing of the charities will take place that Friday evening.
Last year 23 nonprofit organizations applied and eight were randomly chosen to be paired with a team of riders who competed to earn a piece of the purse for their charity. The winning charity earns $1,500, but everyone is a winner because of a sliding scale that awards prize money to each of the selected charities.
For more information, call 828-863-0480.
