Where do you turn for top-flight horse barns when planning a large new equestrian center geared toward re-imagining an entire portion of the equine industry?
The obvious choice, is MD Barnmaster, the country’s leading provider of modular equestrian barns. MD Barnmaster was tapped to install the stables at the new Tryon International Equestrian Center in Tryon, North Carolina.
Construction of the MD Barnmaster barns at this new equine facility began in early March 2014. MD Barnmaster of the Carolinas, operated by Scott Brookins, is installing the barns at this fantastic new equine development.
The Tryon barns are Raised Center Aisle structures with cross breezeways for easy access. Overall, the four new MD Barnmaster barns at Tryon International Equestrian Center will provide nearly 500 stalls. The largest barn has 160 stalls. All of the stalls have black powder coated stall fronts with tongue-and-groove spruce wood fronts.
Tryon and all of Polk County, North Carolina have long been noted equestrian destinations. However, the new center – part of the $90 million White Oak Plantation master-planned development —targets a new equine industry segment not currently being served in the area.
The new Tryon International Equestrian Center will host a variety of large riding events that will put the area on the equestrian map worldwide.
“Polk County is known for the equine industry here but not at this level,” said Cathy Ruth, Polk County planner, during an interview with WLOS New 13, the local ABC affiliate.
She noted that dressage owners, trainers and competitors are the intended target. Currently, high level dressage riders travel from New York, to Florida, and to Europe. Tryon will provide an exciting new venue.
“We are extremely excited to be part of this spectacular facility. The fact that the principle owner of the Tryon facility reordered MD Barnmaster barns after we installed them in Wellington confirms that our state-of-the-art modular barns are perfectly suited to large, world class equestrian facilities that understand and value our product’s integrity, safety and ease of maintenance,” says MD Barnmaster CEO Bruce Thomas.

The new Tryon International Equestrian Center is part of the 1,000-acre development by Tryon Equestrian Properties at White Oak Plantation. When finished, in addition to the state-of-the-art equestrian center featuring the innovative barns from MD Barnmaster, the development will include homes, a golf course, restaurants, retail stores, spa and wellness center and more.
