Southwest Ford announces Sponsorship of National Cutting Horse Association

Weatherford Dealership Sees Win-Win in Supporting Locally-Based National Organization

Weatherford, TX – March 5, 2009 – Ford trucks and cutting horses go hand in hand, so SouthWest Ford in Weatherford created a win-win situation by sponsoring the Fort Worth-based National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA). The local dealership’s sponsorship dollars will help support and promote cutting horse competition enjoyed by thousands of NCHA members and horse enthusiasts nationwide.

With the sponsorship, SouthWest Ford becomes “The Official Automotive Dealership of the NCHA Triple Crown Events” which includes the Super Stakes in April, the Summer Cutting Spectacular in July/August and the World Championship Futurity in November/December. Collectively, the NCHA Triple Crown events consist of 67 days of activity with over $10 million in total prize money awarded to contestants.

“At Southwest Ford, we look for sensible ways to support our community and give back to loyal customers,” said owner Charlie Gilchrist. “Our dealership is in the heart of cutting horse country, and it is both a smart business decision and a meaningful philanthropy for us to support an organization comprised of one of our most valued customer groups – pickup drivers.”

The Fort Worth-based NCHA boasts more than 21,000 members, over 70 percent of whom own at least one truck or SUV. The organization is pleased to add SouthWest Ford, the official automotive sponsor, to its roster of corporate partners.

“NCHA’s relationship with SouthWest Ford is beneficial for both the dealership and our organization,” said NCHA Executive Director Jeff Hooper. “Cutting horse enthusiasts need quality vehicles and SouthWest Ford can ably provide them for our membership.”
