The Carolinas Show Hunter Hall of Fame had a casual inception. One evening in October of 2016, Gerald Pack of Columbus, NC and Jack Towell of Camden, SC ran into each other while dining at Landrum’s The Hare and Hound. Gerald and Jack began reminiscing about all the great show hunters and horsemen from the Tryon area. Their journey down memory lane became an endless list of famous horses and individuals from the Carolinas.
Soon after, Gerald called me with the idea of putting together a Hall of Fame to honor these notable people and horses. At that time, we were serving as directors on the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club’s (TRHC) board. We were excited to add the Carolinas Show Hunter Hall of Fame to TRHC’s historic and equestrian centered organization.
From a casual conversation in 2016, the Carolinas Show Hunter Hall of Fame quickly became a reality. Show your support! Consider nominating, voting and donating to the Carolinas Show Hunter Hall of Fame. Your generous support will guarantee the recognition these outstanding horses and horsemen so greatly deserve. Thank you!
Please do not hesitate to contact any committee member with questions, ideas, or observations.
With warm regards,
Carolinas Show Hunter Hall of Fame
