Tryon Internation Equestrian Center (TIEC) has a grass complex that is receiving new reviews about outstanding turf from riders across the country. The Grass Complex at Tryon International Equestrian Center offers the latest in turf technology. TIEC has a hybrid Bermuda grass called TifTuf Turf, which requires 38% less water irrigation, provides longer growing sustainability and season, as well as an ability to “repair” itself more quickly than traditional grasses. The entirety of the field also has been grown using a proprietary organic material from Mirimichi Green. Mirimichi Green’s products contribute to the thickness and longevity of the turf, but most importantly, the reduction of compaction in the soil. The TifTuf Turf used across the field is developed with ESI international footing surface of specialized sands, organic materials, and synthetic fiber installed on top of a six-inch high drainage system.
Spanning more than 12-acres, the Grass Complex has hosted both international and national show jumping classes, as well as international and national hunter derby competitions, and even portions of the cross-country phase of eventing during the 2016 USEA American Eventing Championships.
