Meet BHPS Charter Sponsors

The BestHorsePractices Summit is a Colorado nonprofit with 501 (c)(3) status.

We are proud to have excellent sponsors toeing the line for this inaugural event.

Meet them here:

From Patagonia WorkWear:

Patagonia, the clothing company characteristically associated with surfers and rock climbers, has chosen the Summit as a vehicle for introducing its fall WorkWear line. It’ll be outfitting BHPS presenters with its new Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Barn Coats and colorful Western Snap shirts.

“We wanted to put WorkWear in the hands of people who will test it, challenge it, and appreciate its utility,” said Chris Gaggia, marketing manager. “Riders, ranchers, working cowboys, and clinicians – they are outside, working hard in the elements every day. WorkWear is well-suited to the demands of the Summit presenters and attendees.”

Iron Forge Hemp Canvas is made of 55 percent hemp, 27 percent recycled polyester, and 18 percent organic cotton.  The material is supple but tough. Third-party testing has shown that the fabric is 25 percent more abrasion-resistant than cotton duck canvas like you see in Carhartt jackets.

From Redmond Equine:

At Redmond Equine, we offer products that cultivate a natural balance in horses. We share a passion and understanding for horses’ well being. When we first heard about the inaugural BestHorsePractices Summit, we knew we’d want to be in on the conference’s ground floor. It’s a great fit for us.
More and more, we see science confirming what we suspected all along: that nature and natural settings are often healthiest for horses (and their humans!). That’s what we embrace at Redmond Equine, too.
We’re thrilled to be a part of the BestHorsePractices Summit and its innovative blend of the academic and practical. See you in October!

From Darn Tough:

At Darn Tough, we know a lot about the rigors of the outdoors. If you’re out there, we’re with you. Horse owners are some of the toughest outdoorsmen we know. They are not weekend warriors. They work hard, play hard, and their horses’ well-being comes first. No weather or outdoor predicament is going to get in their way.
Sponsorship of the BestHorsePractices Summit gives us an opportunity to directly connect with some of the most dedicated members of the horse community. As they work to improve their connection with their equine partners, we’re working to improve our connection with them. Darn Tough is a great fit, figuratively and literally, as each registrant will receive a complimentary pair of Darn Tough socks. See you in Durango!

In March, we welcomed two additional enthusiastic sponsors: Lucerne Farm of Maine, a forage company, and EcoLips, maker of organic lip balm, of Iowa.

Session sponsor Lucerne Farm is based in Easton and Fort Fairfield. The company fits our values and mindset to a T: a small firm with a high quality product that’s great for owners and their equines.
