SmartPak™ Teams Up

Stacy Westfall presents free seminar
at World Championship.

Visitors to this year’s American Paint Horse Association (APHA) World Championship Show got a special chance to see National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) and American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) Freestyle Reining Champion and winner of the prestigious Road to the Horse Competition, Stacy Westfall, share her secrets to “thinking like a horse” during a free horsemanship seminar on Sat., June 28, presented by SmartPak. Recently featured on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Westfall has become one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry due to her great insight and effective teaching style. In addition to presenting this free event, SmartPak also raffled off a set of Big D Horse Blankets to one lucky attendee.

"We are excited to be teaming up with the APHA World Show to offer the Stacy Westfall seminar,” says founder and senior vice president, Becky Minard. “Our customers are always interested in learning about new ways to work with their horses, and so this free event will be a really great opportunity for them.”
