Leading equestrian sports network Horse & Country and The United States Pony Clubs Inc. (USPC), a nationwide organization dedicated to developing character, leadership, confidence, and a sense of community through teaching riding and proper horse care, have announced the details of a wide-ranging partnership. The rationale behind the new arrangement is underpinned by each organization’s ability to offer benefits to the other’s membership community.
Key features of the partnership include:
- 15% discount on annual membership of H&C’s streaming service H&C+ for USPC members
- Cross promotion of core campaigns to each other’s social communities
- Ad campaigns on each other’s media properties including on H&C+ live streams and in USPC newsletters, publications, and more
H&C Partnership Manager Tattie Singer commented, “Over the last year we’ve significantly increased the number of events we’re streaming on H&C+, and we’re planning even more for 2022. This exciting partnership with USPC will help us connect with a passionate group of next-generation equestrians throughout the United States and share our quality equestrian programming with new audiences.”
USPC Executive Director Teresa Woods added, “We are excited to partner with Horse & Country to offer the Pony Club membership this special opportunity to view some of the most exciting equine events from around the world. In addition, our members will love the Masterclasses and training sessions offered by some of our own Pony Club graduates.”
Beyond H&C’s extensive sports coverage, both live and on demand, H&C+ members also get access to more than 1,800 hours of equestrian programming including content from all disciplines, masterclasses and training series, barn tours, rider profiles, and documentaries.
