Horse Press Release
April 7, 2004 - Longtime American Quarter Horse Association Corporate Partner Sooner Trailer announced today that it will renew its partnership with AQHA. The Official Trailer of AQHA since 1988, Sooner Trailer co-sponsors the AQHA World Championship Show and presents the Sooner Trailer Superhorse and Sooner Trailer All-Around Amateur awards.
Sooner Trailer is also a co-sponsor of the AQHYA World Championship Show held each August in Fort Worth, Texas, and co-sponsors at the Bayer Select World Championship Show held in September in Amarillo, Texas, presenting the Sooner Trailer All-Around Select Amateur award.
"We have always cherished our partnership with Sooner Trailer," said AQHA Executive Vice President Bill Brewer. "Many of our programs for our membership are made possible by the dedication of our corporate partners, and we are truly honored to work with such a fine company."
In addition to its support of AQHA's World Shows, Sooner Trailer is the presenting sponsor of the Year-End All-Around Amateur, Reserve All-Around Amateur, All-Around Junior, All-Around Senior, the Open Division Leading Contender, and World Champion Racing American Quarter Horse, presenting a three-horse gooseneck custom award trailer to each award winner.
