MILL SPRING—The Special Olympics North Carolina Equestrian Tournament will be held at Tryon International Equestrian Center from September 22 through September 24, and organizers are asking for volunteers to help with the event. 

Some volunteer roles may require knowledge of horses. However, general volunteers are also needed for things like awards presentations and meal services. 

Each fall, Special Olympics North Carolina athletes compete in showmanship, dressage, western riding, gymkhana races, equitation and working trails at the tournament.
