The World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida, is the largest equestrian sports complex in the United States. Competitors get up early and stay late to train with their horses and compete in a variety of equestrian events at the facility, which also hosts events ranging from car shows to concerts. The facility needed a proven lighting solution that would eliminate shadows on the competition surface without affecting the high-end development surrounding the facility with spill light or glare. Additional considerations included plans to host the international events and the need to optimize for television and livestream broadcasts.
World Equestrian Center management investigated lighting providers and learned of Musco’s experience providing solutions for special builds and television broadcasts. Research determined that Musco’s Total Light Control – TLC for LED™ system system could provide the high light levels needed on the competition surface while controlling spill light and glare. Because of their commitment to providing guests with a world class experience, leaders installed the technology around the Grand Outdoor Arena as well as three other facilities around the Center. 24/7 proactive Control-Link monitoring monitoring centralizes scheduling of all four systems, and staff can rest easy knowing that every part and all labor is covered through the year 2030 by Musco’s comprehensive warranty.
