Three new barns and four renovated barns at WEF almost completed

WELLINGTON, Fla.--IDA Development is completing one of its most ambitious projects in its five year history, improving the stabling at Wellington International.

barn ar WEFA new barn ar WEFIDA Development is constructing three new permanent barns and also renovating the four existing permanent barns on the grounds.

Work began on the new barns last May 1 and will be completed by early November, according to IDA Development owner Harry Knopp.

The new permanent barns are replacing Tents 1, 2 and C.

The largest barn will include 70 stalls, while the other two barns will have 56 stalls and 49 stalls, respectively.

Each barn will be in rows of seven stalls.

The barns will include high-quality Barnwalkers stalls and seamless, safe and durable Equitan Rubber Flooring in all the stalls and aisles.

“The project is going very well,” said Knopp. “It’s ahead of schedule and under budget. We have met and exceeded the expectations of our client. We were honored to have been selected for this project. Our mission is to help Wellington International continue to be a top horse show facility.”


IDA DEVELOPMENT is also renovating the original four permanent barns on the property.

The existing permanent barns were completely gutted so that IDA Development could install Barnwalkers stalls and Equitan flooring in the aisles.

"IDA Development has done a phenomenal job helping Wellington International take the next step forward as the premier equestrian facility," said Michael Stone, president of Wellington International. "The work they've done on the new barns and the renovations will help us continue to set new standards in the equestrian industry. We couldn't be happier."

What sets IDA Development apart from other licensed contractors is their experience in large farm ownership and the day-to-day tasks of maintaining top show horses. 

Knopp and IDA Development believe in giving back to the community, whether through major sponsorships at WEF, Global Dressage and other shows around the country or donating to local charities.

IDA Development also donated their services to build a ring for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Mounted Police.
