Palm Equestrian Academy’s Winning Ways with Western Dressage Welcomes Sponsors to 2024 Events

The first competitive educational event of its kind is hitting the road for summer events in Italy and 4 different states.  Winning Ways with Western Dressage combines the talents of long-time team Lynn Palm and Marie-Frances Davis for weekends of competition and education based on showing and growing. Companies who strive for excellence in education with a competitive spirit are perfect partners for Winning Ways with Western Dressage.

Education and quality run deep for returning sponsor Purina. Having been in Palm’s career since the beginning, Purina strives to educate horse owners, competitive and pleasure riders alike. Complimentary consultations by their network of feed specialists is a company staple. In 5 events, Purina will award more than $3,000 in premium feed.

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 founded by horsewomen. The electrolyte horse treats help promote recovery and hydration for 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.

Kerrits Equestrian Apparel is a great fit for Winning Ways. The many unique styles of technical riding wear offer variety from showing to schooling. Lynn’s favorite is the Microcord Kneepatch Breech both in and out of the saddle. This year’s riders will have a chance to shop with a discount online for their favorite activewear.
