The 2019 Tryon Block House Races, scheduled for October 5 and hosted by Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in conjunction with the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC), has been canceled due to course-development delays and will return to its traditional spring date on April 11, 2020. TIEC has made a significant investment to create a state-of-the-art steeplechase course at the Green Creek Race Course in Columbus, NC.
