Engineer Tricia Barr Wins A Regional World Championship

Tricia Barr and Rodney Bross’s Big Girls Don’t Cry.

Simmons & White has been providing comprehensive civil engineering and land development services for premier equestrian properties in Wellington since the 1970s. Senior Project Manager Tricia Barr has been living and competing in equestrian events in Wellington for more than two decades. This year, she defended two consecutive titles as champion in World Championship Hunter Rider Southeast Region, which required her to compete against elite adult amateur riders from the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington to as far north as North Carolina.

At the 95th annual Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show, a United States Equestrian Federation Heritage-designated competition, Barr rode Rodney Bross’s Big Girls Don’t Cry to the championship in the Adult Amateur Hunter Division (ages 36-49). Barr earned a third Regional World Championship title and a chance to compete in the World Championship Adult Amateur Challenge at the Capital Challenge Horse Show in Maryland later this year.

Simmons & White is proud to have proven equestrians like Barr on staff. In addition to her equestrian endeavors, she is a professional engineer with more than 20 years of transportation design experience, managing notable projects such as the Tequesta Drive bridge replacement and several miles of the Hallandale Beach Blvd. resurfacing and restoration for the FDOT. Barr’s winning attitude has made her the leader in traffic signal design in Palm Beach County, with more than 200 signal designs to her credit, and she has managed the Palm Beach County traffic signal annual contract for more than a decade.
