Nutrena Provides Generous Sponsorship at the Showplace Spring Spectacular

Wayne, IL - June 10, 2009 - The Showplace Spring Spectacular is a horse show that brings in many generous sponsors from both national as well as local companies that support the equestrian industry. One of those generous sponsors this year is Nutrena, a company that has contributed its support at the Showplace Spring Spectacular for the past five years, including the presenting sponsorship for this year's $10,000 NAL Adult Jumper Grand Prix.

Nutrena is a brand of premium horse feed that is produced by Cargill, Inc., a worldwide producer of agricultural products. Nutrena feeds focus on delivering the right balance of nutrients for a horse's daily needs and peak performance, and are used by some of the top riders in the business.

"We really appreciate the support of Nutrena," said Showplace Productions' President Pat Boyle. "The generous sponsorship of Nutrena and so many other companies is what makes our horse shows what they are, and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support."

Nutrena Consultant Tim Karl explained how the company first became involved with the horse shows, stating, "Pat Boyle has been the catalyst for everything that we have done with the Lamplight horse shows. We started sponsoring here on a smaller level and then built the sponsorship up to what it is today. That show definitely has a national scope; there is no question that there are riders that come in from all over the country, and our Nutrena brand is mainly a domestic brand for the United States. For our Nutrena brand, it is very important to sponsor national or regional shows like this because we build our customer base up regionally."

"I have been to a number of different shows and venues throughout the country, and I think this is one of the top horse shows in the country," Karl continued. "Showplace Productions is one of the top organizations for grand prix level horse shows in the nation. I truly believe that."

Nutrena also sponsors rider Wilhelm Genn, who has already had a very successful year and won both the Welcome Stake and the Grand Prix classes at Lamplight last week. He is currently at the top of the standings for the Showplace Leading Rider Series, which awards $30,000 to the top three open jumper riders through the series. Nutrena has sponsored Genn for two years now, and Genn feeds his grand prix horses their top equine product, calledFarr XTN, which Karl describes as "the pinnacle of equine nutritition."

"Wilhelm has had some absolutely phenomenal accomplishments," Karl stated. "On top of what he won last week, he was just inducted into the elite 'Million Dollar Club' for the USHJA, which I think is an amazing accomplishment. He has an incredible string of horses, and he has a number of young horses that are going to be phenomenal down the road as well. I think his training methods and the way he takes careful care of the nutrition program for his horses is a crucial part of his success."

The 2009 Showplace Spring Spectacular has one week of competition left, continuing through June 14 at the Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL. Tomorrow's competition will feature the $10,000 Welcome Stake, sponsored by Taylor Harris Insurance Services, and Saturday will be the $10,000 NAL Adult Jumper Grand Prix, sponsored by Nutrena, as well as the $50,000 Showplace Productions Grand Prix.
