American Paint Horse Association Welcomes LubriSyn to its Corporate Sponsor Lineup
The American Paint Horse Association is excited to announce a partnership with LubriSyn as the Official Joint Supplement of APHA. The new partnership will offer product and expert advice to Paint Horse fans through various print and digital mediums.
Created by Dr. Steve Allday—a renowned equine veterinarian specializing in lameness and sports medicine—LubriSyn is a patented, daily oral supplement of hyaluronic acid (HA) safe for horses, pets and humans. Its unique higher molecular weight formula ensures the integrity of synovial fluid in the joints. Age and exercise degrade joint fluid, but LubriSyn replenishes with natural HA to help keep the equine athlete, backyard companion or beloved pet mobile and healthy.
“LubriSyn is a great story of a product evolving from the experiences of great horse people,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said. “It’s the perfect combination of science and experience. I use the human product and it’s made a big difference in my own joint health.”
“The LubriSyn Family of Products is proud to partner with the American Paint Horse Association, one that works tirelessly to enrich their members experience with their horses,” Dr. Steven Allday, Developer of LubriSyn said. “We take great pride in assisting the APHA in continually working to preserve the history of the American Paint Horse.”
LubriSyn is also the sponsor of Paint Horse Racing’s Vet Clinic column and the free featured article emailed with its bimonthly E-Newsletter. Allday is taking over the reins of the Vet Clinic column. The first column covers how taking notice of small changes in your horse can help prevent big problems down the road.
Allday will also answer Paint Horse fans’ vet-related questions through a monthly Q & A format in the Paint Horse Journal. Questions will be fielded through the Official APHA Facebook page, and all fans whose questions are selected will win a complimentary 30-day supply of LubriSyn.
LubriSyn products will be available for purchase through the APHA General Store by early May. They will also be available at the APHA General Store booth at the AjPHA Youth World Championship Show June 29–July 6 in Fort Worth, Texas.
