Mill Spring, NC – May 3, 2016 – Tryon Tack, the official tack store and retailer of Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), has initiated a key sponsor partnership with American equestrian tack retailer, Beval Saddlery and Italian name brand, Cavalleria Toscana, to carry products and apparel from both companies throughout the 2016 season.

Beval Saddlery will join Tryon Tack as one of the most reputable and historic American-based saddle distributors in the world, offering quality English tack products to equestrians for nearly 50 years. With stores in Gladstone, NJ, Saugerties, NY, and New Caanan, CT, Beval Saddlery’s presence in Tryon Tack will offer a welcomed opportunity for the company to reach a new market, while cementing their presence at the rapidly expanding facility in Western North Carolina.

“Beval Saddlery is thrilled to be partnering with Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) and their official tack store, Tryon Tack. TIEC will continue to grow into one of the leading equestrian destinations in the world,” said Shannon Shaffer, Director of Advertising and Marketing for Beval Saddlery. “Beval, an American company offering the best in saddles and equestrian equipment since 1955, is proud to be a part of that growth, offering the very best quality products for both horse and rider at the facility.”

Alongside the introduction of Beval products, Italian clothing manufacturer Cavalleria Toscana will also join Tryon Tack as a major retailer of clothing and attire available for purchase this season. A popular brand, proudly worn by some of the world’s top equestrian athletes, Cavalleria Toscana presents quality and fashionable apparel, focused on performance needs, for wear both in and out of the competition arena.

“Cavalleria Toscana is proud to have been one of the first vendors at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) last season,” said Michael Davis, owner of Cavalleria Toscana’s U.S. distribution branch PanaCavallo. “As part of our growing partnership with the TIEC, we will now be located in Tryon Tack, which will give our brand a larger presence and representation throughout the venue.”

Tryon Tack will present Beval’s full line of leather equipment and tack, while Butch Zubrod, one of the only remaining Master Leather Craftsman and a cherished member of the Beval team, will be on-site at TIEC and Tryon Tack several days each month to schedule and perform leather and tack repairs.
