DENVER—The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.)  is proud to announce four new sponsors thus far in 2012. Ariat International, Bayer Animal Health, Bimeda-Equimax and Tekna Saddlery have joined the ranks of Purina, Adequan and others through their commitment to inspiring and enriching the human spirit through equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT).

“We are thrilled to have these companies join us as sponsors,” said PATH Intl. CEO Kay Marsh Green. “Each of these sponsors will help the professionals working day in and day out with clients and horses in their own way. Ariat International and Bimeda-Equimax honor veterans and wounded service personnel through their contributions. Tekna Saddles donated more than 100 saddles to PATH Intl. to be used in therapeutic horsemanship. And Bayer Animal Health is helping PATH Intl. to innovate through the sponsorship of our flash drives at the 2012 PATH Intl. Conference.  We could not ask for better companies to work with and hope you will join us by utilizing their superior services.”
