“Continuing to add FEI dates has been a major focus at Tryon International Equestrian Center this year. Our goal is to help keep riders competing in the United States, allowing them to gain valuable ranking points without feeling the pressure to travel internationally to stay competitive,” said Mark Bellissimo, managing partner of the Tryon Equestrian Partners. “Expanding the sport in the U.S. is crucial and in order to do that, we must give riders the opportunity to compete at the highest possible levels throughout the year.”
