Sponsorship BenefitsDownload Full Sponsor Packet Here
The Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Show respects the fact that potential sponsors – from private individuals to Fortune 500 companies – have unique and specialized marketing objectives when considering their sponsorship options. We will customize a strategic sponsorship to suit the specific marketing and promotional needs unique to each individual sponsor. Our team will work with each sponsor to create a dynamic package which will include some of the benefits listed below:
Many corporate sponsors are entitled to on-site display of 3’x 6’or 3’x 8’ banner (s). Banners are displayed in high-visibility locations around the show grounds such as the Grand Prix field fencing, front entrance fencing, railing of top grandstands, schooling area fencing and walkway fencing (where suitable). Sponsors must supply a banner that is nylon or a synthetic, wind-resistant vinyl product, NO plastic. They must be resistant to high winds and wet weather, and design should be visible from as far away as 400’. These will be neatly stapled on the fencing but could be slightly damaged.

Corporate Jump Sign
Depending on sponsorship level, some corporate sponsors are featured in the Grand Prix field with a logo jump sign. This sign is used during the Saturday and Sunday Grand Prix field classes. The signs are placed at the discretion of the course designer but every effort is made to highlight the key sponsors during their sponsored event. Logos to be featured on the jumps must be received by April 1, 2009. (No exceptions)
