Our horse community is charging forward with great enthusiasm as we prepare to host the 2018 World Equestrian Games at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. Meanwhile, the equestrian world anxiously holds it's breath waiting for tickets to go on sale.
As we have extended our invitation to the world to visit the Carolinas it is easy see why the community is buzzing with excitement. There is an enormous amount of construction going on all around the region for accommodations of all kinds. From Hendersonville N.C. to Spartanburg S.C. and beyond the community leaders are courting restaurant and hotel chains to our area in lieu of so many anticipated visitors. We at Farm House Tack are SUPER EXCITED to have this wonderful event hosted in our back yard! Vendor request applications have been submitted to Tryon International Equestrian Center and we are eagerly awaiting a response so we can begin our own preparations to attend something so huge.
Although we are not very far from the Tryon International Equestrian Center, just a bit over 12 minutes away. We have a great location nestled between Tryon N.C. & Landrum S.C. in the heart of local horse country surrounded by dining and housing opportunities. We would have embraced the opportunity to introduce ourselves internationally by participating as a vendor for the World Equestrian Games. What a unique opportunity!
Representatives from Tryon International Equestrian Center along with the FEI held a press conference this past Friday at the Longines FEI World Cup Finals in Omaha, Nebraska. They unveiled the beautiful new logo unique to the 2018 WEG games as well as the schedule of events. September is a beautiful time of year in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and we are eager to show it to the rest of the world in just a short 18 months. We hope, wherever you may live, that you plan to joins us for the 2018 World Equestrian Games!
