A grand time was had by Gypsy Horses and humans alike at our 2010 Fall Open House. We firmly believe in the Gypsy Vanner Horse breed and the horses performances on Saturday, October 16, 2010 confirmed this!

Preparation for this event started months in advance with reseeding, dragging and fertilizing the pastures, training horses from groundwork up through driving, western riding, jumping, working with the mares and foals, gathering a great team for the event and promoting the open house.

Over 300 visitors came throughout the day enjoying everything from the stallion and offspring parade to some wonderful raffles, demonstrations by trainers, great food, music, vendors, pasture tours and more.

We’ve received gracious comments from many who attended the Open House. Thanks to all who came to the event.

We love sharing this breed with all we meet. Whether you are an avid Gypsy Horse owner, considering getting into the breed or love the chance to visit with beautiful horses at the ranch with your family you’re welcome to schedule a visit at any time or wait for our next Open House! The next Gypsy Horse Open House and Spring Gypsy Horse Production Sale will be scheduled sometime in the spring of 2011. We are planning on another October open house with a fall production sale to follow as well! Watch our website for details in the coming weeks.

RELYANT President Shifts to Chairman Role

Posted on November 2, 2010 with No Comments

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (November 2, 2010) – RELYANT, LLC announced today that CEO and President Eric W. Barton has transitioned to the role of Chairman of the Board. In this role, Barton will be responsible for facilitating the board’s development of long-range strategic planning, governance and oversight.

This transition planning has been underway since 2009. Barton’s day-to-day operating responsibilities will be divided between Daniel J. Smith and Jack H. MacRae. Smith will serve as President and COO, while MacRae will continue in his present role of CFO.

Under Barton’s leadership since the company’s founding in 2006, RELYANT has seen continued growth and expanding opportunities.  The current fiscal year represents over 100% growth from 2009 with revenues expected to top $40 million.

“Eric’s vision has helped RELYANT establish its brand and build a strong position in our core markets,” said Smith. “While we’re going to miss his day-to-day engagement with the company, his guidance on our Board of Directors will be a great fit for Eric’s ability to see opportunities, areas to improve upon, and develop plans.”

“Building RELYANT with Dan and the rest of our team has been an incredibly rewarding experience,” Barton observed. “Now, we’re in a position to continue that growth, and I look forward to guiding the Board as we continue building the strategic foundation that will enable RELYANT’s ongoing success.”

RELYANT is a global provider of solutions to complex projects. The company offers services including construction, life support, demining, logistics/procurement, security, and IT communications.
