It is hard to imagine that when C.V. Tarter started building wooden gates by hand in 1945 that he could have envisioned the company it would become. In 2010, his Kentucky-based company will be participating in one of the world's largest and most prestigious equine events. Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment has been selected as the exclusive provider of equine equipment for the 2010 World Equestrian Games, to be held in the U.S. for the first time ever.
Today, the company C.V. Tarter created is the largest manufacturer of farm gates and animal management equipment in North America. It's still in the hands of his descendants, as his grandchildren carry on the work he began more than a half-century ago. As the exclusive provider of equine equipment, Tarter will provide horse stalls, gates, corral panels, and watering and feeding equipment for the games.
"With the World Equestrian Games being literally at our back door for 2010, we are excited to get involved in a big way by providing sponsorship and equipment to the games and the Kentucky Horse Park," said Josh Tarter, vice president of manufacturing for Tarter.
With a 64-year history, Tarter is well known for its high-quality gates. However, its product lines have expanded into a broad spectrum of farm and ranch equipment, including an equine line.
"Our participation in the World Equestrian Games will show our customers that our equine products are top-notch and meet the expectations of the best riders and eventers in the world," Tarter said. "It speaks highly of our product, our engineering and our dedicated employees."
