The incredibly successful partnership of Quarter Horse News and the Tulsa Reining Classic will continue in 2019. The performance horse industry’s leading publication returns as the title sponsor of the Tulsa Reining Classic Stallion Service Auction, which has become a great source for purchasing discounted breedings to top reining stallions.
Bidding opens August 15, and the auction ends at 7 pm on August 30, closing during the show.
Colleen McQuay, President of Global Reining Sport Group, which produces the Tulsa Reining Classic, stated, “Quarter Horse News has been an important asset for the reining world for many years, and for many reasons. Sponsoring the Stallion Service Auction at the Tulsa Reining Classic is just one example of its support.”
The proceeds from the auction benefit the Tulsa Reining Classic, one of the largest National Reining Horse Association approved events. “The Stallion Auction is so important in contributing to the quality and opportunities of the Tulsa Reining Classic, and it presents the best stallions for the mare owners. We greatly appreciate the support Quarter Horse News gives the sport of reining,” McQuay said.
For the Tulsa Reining Classic, that support helps the Stallion Service Auction offer tangible benefits to stallion owners. Participating stallions are eligible to win one of two valuable $5,000 advertising packages provided by Quarter Horse News.
In addition, stallions’ commercials are run on the Ford Truck Arena Jumbotron and on the webcast. Images of the stallions flashed on both venues remind bidders which stallions are available. Stallions’ photos and bio information, along with breeding details are also featured in eblasts, press releases and on FaceBook plus included in displays at the event.
“We work hard to give stallion owners real value for their participation,” summarized McQuay. She added, “Partnering with Quarter Horse News lets us do even more.”
Keeping the reining community up-to-date on stallion statistics, bloodline cross successes and show results are some of Quarter Horse News ‘ major focuses. For information visit quarterhorsenews.com.
