The Pennsylvania National Horse Show is pleased to announce its new partnership with Southern States Cooperative making Southern States the “Official Feed Supplier” for the 2015 Horse Show.  This year’s horse show will take place October 8 – 17 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and will mark the 70th Anniversary of the event.

As the Official Feed Supplier, Southern States will be offering a full range of products from their Legends®, Triple Crown® and Southern States lines of horse feeds.  Riders and trainers may place feed orders in advance for in-stall delivery prior to their arrival at the show.  Orders may be placed through Ryegate by calling (717)867-5643 or by emailing at Feed@Ryegate.com.   Order forms for feed will also be sent with acceptance letters.

“Both the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and Southern States share rich histories and traditions in the horse industry, so it seems natural that we should partner with Southern States on this, our 70th anniversary,” said Liz Shorb, President of the Horse Show.  “We know that Southern States shares our commitment to the well-being of our equine athletes and this partnership further engrains our reputation as the ‘Horseman’s Show’.”

 “I’m thrilled that Southern States has been given the opportunity to be involved with the Pennsylvania National Horse Show. We truly offer a ‘Feed For Every Need.’ It’s exciting to be able to showcase our premium horse feeds to the best of the best at this prestigious horse show,” commented Jessica Lohman, Commercial Livestock and Equine Marketing Manager for Southern States.
