Home / About Synergy Stables

Synergy Stables, Inc. was started by the husband and wife team of Ryan & Andre’ Marie Dohrn.  Over the years, Synergy Stables has focused on the equine reproduction side of the industry.  SS, Inc. has stood such stallions as Infamous Fire, Zippy Zevi Dasher, Hesa Gay Dreamer, Chatti Honor Lark, and several others.  Our emphasis has always been on the barrel racing industry.

An interesting fact about the Dohrn Family.  In 1996, they created and started the 1st Web site dedicated solely to barrel racing – Barrelhorses.com. Barrelhorses.com allowed people to buy and sell barrel horses online, to have real time event results, news stories, and much more.  In 2000, the couple sold their Internet company to Morris Communications in Augusta, GA and relocated from Chicago, IL to the SC/GA area to assist in the management of their equine related site.  The Dohrns were also the minds behind the Award Winning Web site HorseCity.com.

Today, Synergy Stables focuses on the development of barrel horse prospects into finished, seasoned and dependable athlete partners.  At no time will Synergy Stables have more than 5 horses they are working with.

While Synergy Stables is asked frequently, it is now a 100% private equine facility focusing only on the horses they own.  Synergy Stables offers no public services.

Synergy Stables spent 3 years located in Oologah, OK.  As of June, 2017, they have relocated to Beech Island, SC. They are in the process of building a show facility on their 11 acres to highlight their equine athletes.


The Synergy Stables’ barn features 4 show stalls, all with dutch doors – and runs, a wash rack, office and more.  Plans are under way to create a large outdoor arena to host barrel racing events. Be sure to check back for those exciting details.

The Dohrn Family consists of Ryan & Andre’ Marie as well as sons Dylan & Ethan.  Dylan completed his Freshman year at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, and has joined the Navy to serve his country.  Ethan is a Senior in High School with future hopes of pursuing an Engineering degree.  Andre’ currently serves as a Barrel Futurities of America (BFA) Board Member.
