Palm Equestrian Academy’s Winning Ways with Western Dressage Welcomes Sponsors to 2023 Events

The future of Winning Ways with Western Dressage is bright. With just two introductory events in 2022, the 2023 roster has grown to 5 events in the US and 1 event in Italy. With the talents of long-time team Lynn Palm and Marie-Frances Davis, the weekend of competition and education is one of showing and growing. It is so fitting that companies who strive for the same are supporting as sponsors this year.

Quality and education run deep for returning sponsor Purina. Having been in Palm’s career since the beginning, Purina strives to educate horse owners and pleasure and competitive riders alike by offering complimentary consultations by their network of feed specialists. Purina will award more than 4 tons of feed throughout the 2023 series.

Smartpak has been supporting Palm Equestrian Academy for nearly two decades. By honoring the horse and rider and putting their care and comfort first, the partnership with Winning Ways with Western Dressage is seamless. Smartpak is kindly awarding gift certificates to the High Score Open, Amateur and Youth riders at each of the events this year.

Florida based Funky Unicorn Treats with a Purpose is new to Winning Ways. Founded by horsewomen, the electrolyte horse treats help promote recovery and hydration for our equine partners. This unique treat is much like a sugar cube and is easy to give but with the benefits of electrolytes. Each class winner will receive a sampling of these treats.
