Although families are invited to come to the rodeo both nights, Friday night is branded as “Family Night.” Food and drinks will be available for purchase on both nights of the rodeo.

FENCE encourages the community to come out to the rodeo as all proceeds will go to support FENCE’s programs and events such as the Therapeutic Riding of Tryon program (TROT), youth and adult educational programs, summer camps, free family events and much more. 

Additionally, the funds raised will also help to support the upkeep and maintenance of 384 acres of land and five miles of trails which are open to the public 365 days a year at no cost. 

For more information about this event, contact FENCE at 828-859-9021, info@fence.org or visit fence.org. FENCE is located at 3381 Hunting Country Road in Tryon.
