The horse industry in the United States contributes $39 billion in direct economic impact to the US economy.  According to The 2005 Economic Impact of the Horse Industry in the U.S., a study commissioned by the American Horse Council Foundation, the industry supports 1.4 million jobs on a full-time basis.  When indirect and induced spending are included, the economic impact reaches $102 billion. The estimated horse population in this country has reached 9.2 million, a fact noticed by corporations which sponsor global events like the Volvo World Cup, the Land Rover/FEI World Three-Day Event, and the Samsung Nations Cup.  This marketing exposure is an extremely cost-effective, unique way for your company to reach a vast, sophisticated, and affluent audience.  Signature Events is now presenting businesses a unique opportunity to reach these consumers while contributing to the youth and equestrian sport.

"I had the amazing opportunity to earn a scholarship at a Signature Show. That was a huge help for my parents, because like many families today, we are struggling. Yet at the same time, my family continues to support my passion in this expensive sport. I have always had to work hard coming from a middle class family, and a family that had no idea what a horse was. I eventually coerced my parents into getting me my first project horse, a thoroughbred from the track. After an accident about a year ago, we weren’t sure if he would be able to jump again. But, like he has done numerous times before he proved everyone wrong. He came out in his first show at Del Mar in March and jumped all the jumps with a huge heart. He continues to drive my passion and I now am determined to make a name for myself in riding. The County horse shows give me an opportunity to prove to myself that hard work and perseverance pays off. Showing gives me a reward and a sense of accomplishment for the many hours spent mucking, brushing, feeding, and of course riding. Coming out of the ring after a great round is the best feeling in the world. This scholarship allows me to get closer to my dreams. Maybe with more of these opportunities I may even be able to make something of my career on the A circuit. Again, thank you for this amazing opportunity, I am forever grateful." Natalie McCright
