BMB Tack shows support for multiple APHA programs

FORT WORTH, Texas-Several American Paint Horse Association (APHA) programs will benefit from the continued support from BMB Tack, which has renewed its partnership with the Association.
"The thing I like best about working with APHA is that it is a very progressive equine organization," said Kim Hanna, marketing director for BMB Tack, which has been a longtime sponsor of APHA.
"They are constantly going out of their way to find new ways to reach their members. Because APHA is such a broad organization and serves so many, we can reach the full spectrum of horse owners."
BMB, which specializes in creating one-of-a-kind leads, blankets, halters and other horse gear, has been an APHA sponsor for more than six years. Among the programs and activities that BMB has helped to support include:

" APHA's World Championship Paint Horse Show-BMB provides products to winners in several different categories during the show, year after year.
" Ride America®-BMB helps support APHA's recreational riding program by providing products for top achievers who log significant hours on their Paint Horses.
" Clubs of Distinction-By supporting APHA's outstanding clubs throughout the country, BMB has encouraged people to become more involved in the association through their local clubs.
" Paint Racing-BMB provides awards for outstanding Paint racing competitors through APHA's Paint racing program, including sponsored year-end awards.
" Paint Alternative Competition (PAC)-BMB provides awards for top earners in the PAC program. PAC records the performance of registered American Paint Horses-Regular Registry or Breeding Stock-when they perform in an activity outside of breed-approved shows.

"Through the support of partners like BMB, we can continue to expand many of our programs that enrich our members' experiences with their Paint Horses," said Jim Kelley, APHA executive secretary.
BMB products are hand-made, one at a time, to ensure quality and durability. Offering more colors and styles than any its competitors, BMB continually adds new products to its catalog. BMB products are also now available online at
