Jim and Bernadette Cogdell of The Fork International CIC */**/*** & Horse Trials announce the relocation of the event to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, NC, in 2017. One of the most prestigious Eventing competitions on the North American calendar, the Cogdells have made the decision to move locations in order to ensure that the popular event will continue at the same high level.
Jim Cogdell stated, “We have proudly hosted The Fork Horse Trials for 15 years, and it has grown into one of the premier horse trials in the United States. We are very proud of what we have created in North Carolina. It has taken a great deal of time, effort, passion, and funding to create this event, and it is now time for the next chapter in this competition’s history. We believe that moving the location of this event to the TIEC will secure its future and elevate the level of competition while enhancing the fan experience.”
While not straying from its home state of North Carolina, The Fork will take advantage of the spectacular new facility at TIEC in order to maintain a top quality event with top-of-the-line footing, a spectator-friendly venue, a stadium to showcase dressage and jumping, and one of the most hotly anticipated cross-country courses in North America.
