2014 SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE & ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES


Sponsorship of Reining Alberta Reining Alberta’s Board of Directors would like to thank you for your interest in our Association and the sport of Reining. Reining is the fastest growing equine sport across the globe and has enjoyed very strong growth and interest here in Alberta over the last 20 years. The Association offers many different marketing and advertising opportunities to help you target the right reiners and competitive riders for your business or product. Reining Alberta was established in 1993 as a not-for-profit organization (Non Profit Society #506897065) dedicated to promoting, developing and enhancing the sport of reining in Alberta. Reining Alberta: • Has over 500 members • Will offer 14 Branch shows, 8 clinics and 3 major shows in 2014 • Our three Premier Classic shows (Spring, Summer, and Fall) combined will payout in excess of $95,000, with an average of 250 competitors attending each show, and over 350 spectators per show. Oline viewing reaches an even larger number of family, friends, and reining enthusiasts. • Is the largest NRHA Affiliate in Canada, with more members than many National Affiliates • Spring Classic is an NRHA Top 50 Show attracting competitors from across Western Canada and the Northern United States Through our various levels of shows, clinics and other programs Reining Alberta can provide you with an ongoing opportunity to promote your products and services, through signage, prizes, and booth opportunities. Reining Alberta recognizes the importance of the development of the love of horses and riding, and encourages the grass roots growth of the sport through our Branch Circuit system. Reining Alberta currently has three branch’s in the province; the North, Peace, and South Branch. This allows us to better meet the needs of our members in those particular areas and keep fun and educational shows and events closer to home. It also enables us to target your desired geographical area to better focus your advertising dollars. Many of our members are also active breeders working tirelessly to improve and better the sport by providing healthy and talented offspring that will lead the sport into the future. Reining Alberta helps through the initiation and management of a major breeding program. In 2013, the Reining Alberta Sire Incentive Program had 29 prominent stallions subscribed throughout Alberta. This program is growing and has successfully attracted an increasing number of entries each year. This program presents an opportunity for forward thinking sponsors to attach their name to a promising, growing program. Recognizing that the youth are the future of our Association, Reining Alberta offers many programs geared towards encouraging and involving our youth riders in the sport. All our shows offer youth only classes where they can compete against riders that are of similar age and ability. The Branch shows in particular offer many beginner youth classes to encourage new youth riders to try the sport and all it has to offer. With the support of many of the wonderful coaches and trainers in our province we also offer youth development clinics where they can learn from some of the best coaches in our industry. Our Youth Development Program is another exciting sponsorship opportunity. Youth members receive points by volunteering and participating at Reining Events. For every 100 points earned, the youth earns $100.00 in funding for education. Our sponsorship program is always evolving to offer our sponsors the most we can to meet their goals and expand our offerings. If you are looking for a particular advertising opportunity please feel free to contact us to discuss it. We would be happy to work with you to come up with an advertising strategy that would best meet your goals and needs. Please contact us to discuss how you can participate in this growing program.
