FarmVet Signs Three Year Sponsorship with USHJA

March 11, 2009



Lexington, KY – March 11, 2009 – FarmVet, an internet catalog company offering horse and pet care products, has joined the United States Hunter Jumper Association as the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Title Sponsor of the Horse Welfare Resource. Since its founding, the USHJA has made great efforts to keep horse welfare a top priority in the industry. With an active Horse Welfare Committee that has collected informative materials and created a Horse Welfare Guide, the USHJA feels that the addition of FarmVet will help broaden the resources and educational opportunities available to its membership.

“I am very excited about the new sponsorship,” Christian Currey, owner and President of FarmVet, said. “FarmVet prides itself in being a forerunner in equine healthcare, so being the title sponsor for the USHJA Horse Welfare Resource just made sense. We are happy to be giving back to our equine community.”

Over the next three years, FarmVet will partner with the USHJA to provide the hunter jumper industry with general horse care and welfare resources. “We are looking forward to being the knowledge source for horse welfare for the USHJA,” Currey continued. Examples include running a FarmVet Horse Welfare featured column in the bi-weekly USHJA E-News covering topics that encompass all aspects of horse care from safe stable management to grooming tips. Horse care seminars presented at USHJA annual meetings are also in developmental stages.

FarmVet offers a wide selection of products to help horses perform at their best including healthcare, supplements, stable supplies and a full line of pharmaceutical products. For more information about FarmVet or to view its products, visit www.farmvet.com
