On Saturday, Nov. 17, Therapeutic Riding of Tryon will host its annual Student Horse Show. 

The purpose of this horse show is to give all 25 students the opportunity to showcase their skills and accomplishments — and to have fun doing it, organizers said.

Barbara DiPalma will judge this year’s competition. Each student will participate in two classes, equitation and trail. Ribbons will be awarded in each class.
