Dabora, Inc. has substantially increased their annual sponsorship commitment to the Walking Horse Owners Association. WHOA officials approached World Champion Horse Equipment and Walking Horse Report in early May seeking additional financial support for WHOA and the many great programs the organization provides. Dabora agreed to increase their financial commitment to a total value of $35,500 per year based on their belief that WHOA’s survival is critical to the future of the Walking Horse industry and the development of future horse shows.
The WHOA Board of Directors voted unanimously on May 27 to endorse the sponsorship. “WHOA is grateful to Dabora, Inc., for increasing their financial commitment to WHOA by becoming a Premier Sponsor,” said WHOA Sales & Marketing Director Mark Taylor.
The Walking Horse Report will now be the exclusive publication for all WHOA events including the International Grand Championship. “The Walking Horse Report believes strongly in WHOA’s mission of providing horse show development for our industry, and we appreciate the opportunity to expand our partnership to a new level. We have enjoyed being the official publication of the International and we are proud to now be the official publication of all WHOA events,” said Publisher Jeffrey Howard.
World Champion Horse Equipment, the official horse equipment supplier of the International, will now be the official horse equipment supplier of all WHOA events as well. “World Champion has been a proud sponsor of WHOA for many years and I am thrilled to be able to give additional support allowing WHOA to continue their great work,” said owner Christy Howard Parsons.
