The Day of the African Equestrian - Concert
A evening of musical entertainment - featuring internationally acclaimed singer and composer Drea d'Nur.

Also scheduled to perform are: The Lemira Percussion Ensemble (of Sumter, SC) and Katrina 'Kat' Williams (an America's Got Talent finalist).

The concert will conclude two days of festivities celebrating the participation of horses, riders, coaches and supporters from Africa in the 2018 Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) World Equestrian Games (WEG) held at North Carolina's Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).  

With the assistance of the Nina Simone Project, the Tryon International Film Festival and the Tryon Downtown Development Association leaderships, a series of targeted activities will take place on Monday, September 17th in Tryon, NC.

A delegation representing the African Confederation of Equestrian Sports (ACES) will be honored guests at the gala  whose focus celebrates the contributions of Continental and Diasporic Africans to equestrian knowledge, history, sport and tradition.

National Federations governing equestrian sport in twenty (20) African nations are currently members of the FEI and ACES. The FEIs oldest African affiliate is the Egyptian Equestrian Federation, which joined in 1946. The most recent African affiliate is Angola's Federação Angolana de Desporto Equestre, which was accepted into membership in 2014.
