Tryon International Equestrian Center

On November 3, 2016, Federation Equestrian International (FEI) announced the selection of Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in North Carolina as the host of the World Equestrian Games (WEG) 2018. The FEI Bureau unanimously agreed that the world games, held every four years in the middle of the Olympic cycle, should be awarded to TIEC.


TIEC is fully operational, including a third season of 37 weeks of spring, summer, fall events underway, and was a crucial addition to a network of licensed international equestrian competition venues and year-round Olympic caliber events in the U.S. This includes the Wellington Equestrian Center events in Palm Beach County, Florida; the Central Park Horse Show in New York; and the Colorado Horse Park near Denver. Managing Partner Mark Bellissimo and his partners own and operate this nationwide network.

Project has Exemplar Approval from USCIS

This new economic cluster project consists of construction of an architecturally stunning 175-room resort hotel with spa, 90-condos, retail shops, offices, apartments, a sports complex, a restaurant and parking decks in the Tryon Village and Tryon Resort perched above the Tryon International Equestrian Center.


The completion of US Precision Construction by Tryon Equestrian Partners is a key part of the new economic cluster and will manufacture wall, floor, ceiling, and roof precision engineered sections for final assembly at Tryon Village and Tryon Resort.


The world-class Tryon Resort is a 1,400-acre retreat conveniently located between the Charlotte Douglas International, Asheville Regional and Greenville-Spartanburg International airports in the rolling, picturesque foothills of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains.


Professional partners include Tryon Equestrian Managing Partner Mark Bellissimo, HomeSmith architectural firm, Odom Engineering, Salamander Hospitality, Baker Tilly Capital, Immigration Counsel Ronald Klasko, Securities Counsel Ronald Fieldstone and Economist Scott Barnhart.
