Sandron Farm and Olympic Gold Medalist Joe Fargis Win World Development Group Tack Room Award During First Week of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival

RELEASE: January 18, 2012

Wellington, FL – Joe Fargis may be best known for winning the 1984 Olympic individual gold medal on Touch of Class, but the veteran jumper rider who has had tremendous success over the past five decades is also the proud owner of Sandron Farm, in Middleburg, Virginia. Thanks to a beautiful tack room setup at their home-away-from- home barn on the show grounds of the Winter Equestrian Festival, Fargis and Sandron Farm took home the World Development Group Tack Room Award during the first week of the 2012 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival.

The Tack Room Award is sponsored by World Development Group, a premier developer that is committed to building the equestrian lifestyle. Based in Wellington, Florida, World Development Group is currently in the process of constructing the new show grounds for the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington. World Development Group is kicking off the 2012 season in Florida in grand style as an inaugural sponsor of the Global Dressage Festival and as sponsors of the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival. “We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Tack Room Award and the 1.35m jumper classes at the Winter Equestrian Festival,” said David Zinaman, Director of Real Estate Sales and Marketing, adding that they will also be sponsoring classes at the Wellington Classic Dressage Association, the Gold Coast Dressage Association and the International Horse Sport Palm Beach circuit.

Zinaman congratulated Fargis and Sandron Farm on their tack room setup, which included beautiful black and tan colors, mulched flower beds, hanging plants and a handsome and well thought out seating area for clients and staff. A Sandron Farm representative said the tack room setup was a result of teamwork and that they were all thrilled to win the World Development Group Tack Room Award.

While Fargis is still known for his great seat and excellent release over the jumps, he has always been known for having a stable full of world-class jumpers. Fargis has 12 horses at the Winter Equestrian Festival, and all are staying comfortable in Sandron Farm’s show grounds barn. “Joe grew up in Long Island and every barn there had the name ‘Sand’ in it, so Joe came up with the name Sandron when naming his farm,” said one of the barn managers at Sandron. Fargis has won countless Grand Prix classes during his career and is considered one of the best practical clinicians in the country.

While the name Fargis is linked to great success, World Development Group is hoping their name will soon conjure up the images of their talented team that brings extensive experience in all facets of design, engineering and construction to the table. World Development Group has projects ranging from small residential barns to complete show facilities, from custom homes to high-rise hotels and equestrian themed residential communities.

The World Development Group also offers a fully licensed in-house architectural group, land development division and zoning and engineering team. “We are able to successfully complete projects in all 50 states and around the world. We are focused on developing projects that promote the Equestrian Lifestyle and are dedicated to guiding our clients through every decision of the building process,” Zinaman said. World Development Group uses only the finest products, such as those from MD Barnmaster and Rigid Global Buildings.
