2019 Summit Sponsors

Last year’s Summit was incredible for its range of attendees. Vets, competitive riders, recreational riders, and trainers came from Canada, Europe and two dozens states to soak up our academic and arena presentations.

Equally impressive is Summit sponsor support. We’re thrilled to have the following sponsors back in force and welcome several new sponsors:

Patagonia returns as title sponsor
