NCHA announces SmartPak Equine™ as Newest Sponsor

(Fort Worth, TX) – SmartPak Equine™ recently joined the National Cutting Horse Association as its newest corporate sponsor. SmartPak Equine offers supplements and pharmaceuticals in pre-measured, daily dose paks, customized with your horse’s name to ensure fast, accurate feeding every time. Whether keeping a horse on your own property, or away with a trainer, it’s a great way to know your supplements are going to get fed right, and to simplify your busy life.

SmartPak Equine was formed as a solution to managing nutritional supplements and medications for horses. From back yard farms to big show barns, this patented daily dose feeding system has been adopted by thousands of barns and horse owners across the country. In 2008 SmartPak served its 150 millionth supplement in SmartPaks and the number of horses on the SmartPak system continues to climb rapidly as riders of all levels and disciplines discover the affordable convenience of using SmartPaks to put their supplement program on "auto-pilot."

"We are extremely pleased and excited to enter into this partnership with SmartPak," said NCHA Executive Director Jeff Hooper. "Cutting Horses need and deserve the highest quality of care, nutrition, vitamins and supplements to perform at a high level, and SmarkPak offers the ideal combination of quality and convenience that Non Pros, Amateurs and professional trainers look for."

Horse owners can choose from more than 300 competitively-priced supplements and pharmaceuticals for their personalized SmartPak, and SmartPak uses their buying power to offer them at a price that is often less than your local tack or feed store.

“We are excited to be partnering with the NCHA to bring the popular SmartPak™ supplement feeding system and our innovative line of products to NCHA members,” said Rebecca Bennett, Director of Western Marketing at SmartPak. “SmartPak is committed to working with NCHA members and becoming a partner in their horse’s health and well being by providing them with simple, innovative solutions and exceptional service.”

In addition to the SmartPak supplement system, the company offers a broad line of horse health and rider items, dog supplies, and equine and canine pharmacy items sold through their catalog and Web site.
