The American Paint Horse Association (APHA) recently announced a new partnership with Pfizer Animal Health. Naming Pfizer as a 2008 Corporate Sponsor was an important step for the association as Pfizer specifically chose to enter into a relationship with APHA as a result of the association’s member enthusiasm and the special place the American Paint Horse holds in the U.S. horse industry.

APHA’s newest partnership is sure to be a winning combination, with the association’s continued position as one of the largest horse breed associations in the world and Pfizer’s strength in equine health. Pfizer offers Paint Horse enthusiasts an array of products backed by science and designed to support optimum health for all types of horses. As part of Pfizer’s relationship with APHA, the company plans to host an educational seminar on equine health and management for all attendees at APHA’s 38th Annual APHA Convention and Membership Meeting, which will be held October 2-4 in San Diego, California

"APHA is honored to partner with the largest research-based pharmaceutical company in the world," said Executive Director Lex Smurthwaite. "Pfizer is a natural fit for APHA because Paint Horse members truly value the health and well-being of their horses and Pfizer has discovered and developed some of the leading products that can help horses live longer, healthier lives. We plan for this to be a long and mutually-beneficial partnership."
