Platinum Performance becomes title sponsor of The Cowgirl Gathering Barrel Race

The second annual Cowgirl Gathering, coming up November 11-14, 2021, in Fort Worth, Texas, announces its newest partnership with Platinum Performance, title sponsor of The Cowgirl Gathering Barrel Race.

In its inaugural year, the $20,000 Cowgirl Gathering Barrel Race exceeded expectations with over 1,200 entries in just 24 hours.

“The Cowgirl Gathering has become a highlight event in the Stockyards,” APHA Director of Business Development Kurt Crawford said. “The barrel race was a key component of the overall event success last year. We are excited to have the support from leading supplement company Platinum Performance, who manufactures advanced nutritional support formulas for horses as well as companion animals and people. Their mission and the people involved align perfectly with The Cowgirl Gathering.”

The Cowgirl Gathering Barrel Race is believed to be one of the largest one-day barrel races across the country, boasting incredible prizes including cash payouts.

“We are excited to enter this new partnership with The Cowgirl Gathering as the title sponsor of the barrel race,” Platinum Performance Equine Marketing Manager Lauren Thompson said. “We are passionate about supporting the industry with new opportunities for riders as well as providing nutritional solutions for equine athletes to meet the demands of their sport.”
