Benefits of Sponsorship

WTHJA horse shows enjoy a popularity and loyalty among regional equestrians that transfers to our show sponsors through partnership marketing. Our “A” Hunter/Jumper Shows draw top equestrians from a broad South Central and Midwest region of the United States, including: Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. These competitors–including trainers, support staff, riders, and entourage spectators–provide a significant local economic impact on hotels, restaurants, local shops, and other vendors. The benefits of placing your brand and business in front of this dynamic group are tremendous:

  • Associate your brand with wholesome, fun, and exciting activities which appeal to the entire family.
  • Increase brand awareness through sponsor participation in WTHJA marketing programs that span onsite, internet, social media, and regional publications advertising.
  • Support youth leadership and development opportunities.
