“Peoples’ expectations are one of the things that drives horse shows,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said. “It’s through our sponsors that we’re able to provide appropriate awards for those that excel in the ring. We want to give them the best awards possible. And these sponsors help us do that. Our sponsors understand the horse industry. When people get those awards, they’re meaningful because the exhibitors know the companies and how those companies are supporting the industry.”
