February 8, 2009 -- The Purina HOW® Horse Owner's Workshop, which will be held at more than 1,000 Purina dealers across the country this year, is the largest grassroots educational workshop in the industry that provides horse owners with up-to-date information on equine nutrition, veterinary issues, health and maintenance care, training techniques, the latest gear and more.
"Across the nation, horse owners will have the opportunity to ask questions of leading equine experts, attend a workshop, learn the latest in equine care and nutrition and meet other horse enthusiasts at their local Purina dealer," said Brant Gilbert, marketing manager for Purina Horse Business Group.
HOW attendees also will be the first to learn about Purina's newly enhanced horse feeds and to sign-up for "The Purina Difference," an exclusive horse feeding trial.
Along with local dealership prizes, coupons, rebates and special offers, horse enthusiasts can sign up for the HOW Horse Owner's Workshop Sweepstakes. One lucky grand prize winner will receive a custom-built trailer provided by Twister Trailer; a $1,000 Wrangler Jeans gift certificate; a $1,000 Carhartt gift certificate; one ton of Purina Premium Horse Feed; and a generous assortment of horse products from other industry leading companies. Two regional prize winners will get to choose between a John Deere Riding Lawn Mower X749 Ultimate Tractor or a John Deere Compact Utility Tractor 3032E and will receive an additional assortment of prizes from other leading vendors.
The HOW Horse Owner's Workshop program is sponsored in part by EQUUS magazine. For more information, or to find the HOW Horse Owner's Workshop nearest you, visit www.purinadifference.com.
