Tryon Resort’s Hobby Horse Series
July 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until July 27, 2019
Hobby horsing is the “safe, fun and affordable way to ride horses.” Riders participating in competitive hobby horsing – a toy consisting of a stick with a model horse head – perform and mimic the movements and technicality of horseback riding in the disciplines of show jumping and dressage, then translate that to their stick horse, where judges will mark and score their rounds. For participants competing in show jumping, courses are set with tricky combinations and patterns, similar to the show jumping competitions seen at TIEC throughout the year. Individuals must register by noon on event day.
