The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (USPC) is thrilled to announce a new partnership agreement with Zoetis Inc. (Zoetis) as the Official Equine Health & Wellness Partner.
“The Zoetis Equine team is proud to support the Pony Club mission, which teaches the next generation the horsemanship, leadership and responsibility to enjoy a lifetime of horse ownership, riding, and other activities with horses,” said Jen Grant, Head of Marketing, U.S. Equine for Zoetis. “From the barn to the veterinary clinic to a Pony Club rally, we’re committed to being by the side of horses and their caregivers.”
As a long-time innovator in the animal health field, Zoetis offers leading equine health products, including Quest® Gel and Quest® Plus Gel dewormers, Dormosedan® Gel (detomidine hydrochloride) oral sedative, Pro-Stride® APS, a regenerative medicine device, the Core EQ Innovator® vaccine, and much more. For over 70 years, Zoetis and its legacy companies have been committed to helping horses live healthier, happier lives.
“Zoetis and Pony Club share a commitment to providing horses with the best possible care, so this partnership is a natural fit,” said USPC Executive Director Teresa Woods. “Through their trusted products, education and resources, we value all that Zoetis has to offer Pony Club members and their horses and ponies. We look forward to working side by side with the team at Zoetis to improve horse care knowledge at all levels and celebrate the special connection that comes from caring for a horse.”
USPC members can look forward to receiving exciting educational content from Zoetis across the USPC platforms, including Discover USPC, Pony Club’s membership publication; and the bimonthly Pony Club E-News digital newsletter, which is available for anyone to subscribe to. Members will also have opportunities to engage with Zoetis experts at the USPC Convention to be held in January.
“I couldn’t be more excited that Zoetis is now an official sponsor of the United States Pony Clubs,” said Ken Bunn, Executive Account Manager at Zoetis and proud 7-year Pony Club volunteer. “Through volunteering with my local Pony Club, I’ve seen firsthand how much horses add to the lives of young people by teaching them responsibility, instilling leadership qualities, and building self-confidence. Both Zoetis and Pony Club have long been dedicated to providing horses with the best possible care, so it makes sense to bring these two organizations together to further support the next generation of equestrians and the horses that teach them so much.”
