Farnam® Horse Products Joins APHA as Official Partner in Horse Care
The American Paint Horse Association is proud to announce that Farnam® Horse Products has become APHA’s Official Partner in Horse Care.  A global leader in equine care products, Farnam® has joined forces with APHA in a three-year major sponsorship agreement.

Already the title sponsor of the Farnam® Breeders’ Trust 2-Year-Old Western Pleasure Stakes Class and Farnam® Breeders’ Trust Select Sale at the 2012 APHA World Championship Show in Fort Worth, Texas, Farnam’s further dedication to APHA members is warmly received. Farnam’s top-tier sponsorship will extend to future AjPHA Youth World Championship Shows and Open/Amateur World Shows.

As APHA’s Official Partner in Horse Care, Farnam® will bring expansive knowledge and benefits to APHA members with its grooming, fly control, dewormer, wound care and hoof care expertise.

“We’re really thrilled to add Farnam as a major sponsor of the world’s second largest equine association,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said. “It’s always great to earn the confidence of industry leaders and we certainly appreciate their expressing this level of support in the direction we’re taking. We look forward to a very productive partnership and welcome the opportunity to provide active support to one of the most widely recognized names in the animal health care industry.”

Farnam® will also sponsor the VIP parade of owners, breeders and stallion owners prior to the 2012 Farnam® Breeders’ Trust 2-Year-Old Western Pleasure Stakes Class. With a guaranteed payout of $40,000, this class ranks as the APHA World Show’s richest event. Paint Horse owners have an additional reason to attend the 2013 APHA World Show, as Farnam’s contributions will help next year’s 2-Year-Old Pleasure Stakes Class pay out $50,000.

To help APHA members say thank you to Farnam®, APHA’s newest Corporate Partner will receive special recognition at APHA Convention in Fort Worth, Texas, October 4–6. Representatives from Farnam® will also be honored at the inaugural APHA Hall of Fame induction ceremony October 5.

Thanks to Farnam’s commitment to excellence in horse care, APHA members can expect future developments to be announced as this partnership evolves.
