Sponsors make our Association happen.

Thanks for your interest in sponsoring the Gem State Stock Horse Association.

We offer a range of sponsorship opportunities that all provide excellent advertising opportunities for your business for a full year, generally from May-April to match our show season.

Sponsorship dollars assist in many aspects of our Association, including funding for high-quality shows and Year End awards at our annual banquet.

GSSHA is a 501(c)(3), making your contribution tax-deductible.

Our Participants

The Gem State Stock Horse Association is set up to accommodate all levels of riders.

We welcome newcomers and top professionals alike!

We are constantly adding innovative classes that appeal to a broad scope of horseman, such as our Advanced Boxing classes and Four Event Bridle classes.

Gem State is also focused on growing our Youth program. These events are rapidly expanding and ensure a place for young riders to gain experience in the Cowhorse events.

Our members and club show participants come from across the Northwest, including Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Utah.

We put on four shows and multiple clinics, paid practices, and more, including an NRCHA sanctioned 4 day show in July that will include more than $30,000 in added money! This show features the most affordable Practice Futurity around and draws participants from as far as Arizona and California.

Your Visibility

You deserve recognition for your support of our association.

We make sure to get your name out there in many different ways.

Arena banners. Make your company logo big and bold at all of our events and shows.

Gem State Awards Jackets: in 2016, we began offering embroidered sponsor logos on our awards jackets. These jackets were spotted across the Northwest, as well as at national level NRCHA shows!

Announcer recognition: who doesn’t like hearing their name over the loudspeaker?!

Banner ads on our website: rotating banner ads in many places throughout our site make sure you’re being seen year-round when our participants check in on event schedules, news, and more. Don’t have a web banner? No worries, we’ll make one. These banners are also rotated through our frequent email marketing campaigns

Facebook promotion: we recognize our sponsors on our Facebook page with tags in our posts as well as posts specifically for your business. These posts are staggered throughout the year for maximum impact on our readership.
