Sept. 19, 2013 — What horse doesn’t have a dog or six!? Keeping up with our horses can get them dog tired, and sore. They want to join the ride but the ole bones say nah…not today I’m too sore. Well, no longer is this the case for the dogs of American Competitive Trail Horse Association (ACTHA)!

Paul’s Pet Products has become a sponsor and gives free pain relief products (or other canine products) to all winners of ACTHA events in each division! Top place junior, pleasure and open get to go into Paul’s online store and select any one product of their choice. Those placing second and third…in each division…get to shop at 75% and 50% discounts respectively.

Paul’s has also joined ACTHA’s 15/25 everyday sponsor program where every ACTHA member gets a 15% anytime discount and all ACTHA Buck holders get 25% off any purchase. 

“This just blows us away” stated Robin Tilghmann ACTHA’s Director of Marketing and National Sales. “It is such a difficult thing for ACTHA to get prizes to our hundreds of events. The shipping and logistics are very difficult for us and our sponsors. But this act by Paul’s opens a whole new door. We can see awards for furthest traveled, hard luck, most improved, rescue horse…you name it. If there is a need and a sponsor who can capitalize on that need we can serve them, our members and the unwanted horses and charities we directly contribute to. ACTHA gives about 20% of its gross of every single ride fee from every single event. This adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The more we grow the better it goes for horses in need.”

Debbie Land, ACTHA’s Publicist and Awards Manager, concluded: “Paul’s extreme show of generosity and smart giving is a valuable addition to our awards program and we look forward to serving them and all our sponsors with a fresh creative line ups of awards and prizes for many years to come.

ACTHA is based near Austin Texas and for five years has been following the below mission: To create an enjoyable venue showcasing the wonderful attributes of the great American trail horse and granting them the recognition they so richly deserve. To create a registry open to all breeds and a point designation system which will stay with each horse for its lifetime, thereby adding to their value and distinction. To create and enable humane treatment options and employment for horses in need. Cashless Sponsorship enquiries welcomed at
