American Paint Horse Association Partners with USRider
The American Paint Horse Association proudly announces a new partnership with USRider, the national provider of roadside emergency assistance for equestrians. The partnership establishes USRider as the official roadside service provider for APHA and is one of the new benefits and substantial savings offered to members through APHA Xtras.
APHA Executive Director Billy Smith says APHA is excited about adding USRider to its new Xtras program.
“This relationship will give all of our members who haul up and down the highways of the United States a level of security that’s hard to match with other travel services,” Billy said.
“We are proud to be associated with the APHA and we’re excited to be working with them,” said Bill Riss, General Manager of USRider. “APHA is dedicated to providing value and services to American Paint Horse owners. We look forward to the opportunity to offer APHA members the value and peace of mind that comes with USRider membership.”
Now in its 11th year of operation, URRider provides unparalleled emergency roadside assistance to horse owners. Through the Equestrian Motor Plan, USRider provides nationwide roadside assistance and towing services along with other travel-related benefits to its members. The plan includes standard features such as flat-tire repair, battery assistance and lockout services, plus towing up to 100 miles and roadside repairs for tow vehicles and trailers with horses. Plus, USRider maintains a national database that includes emergency stabling, veterinary and farrier referrals.
