Dear Prospective 2022 Sponsor,
Thank you for your interest in supporting Marion Horse Show as a 2022, 75th Anniversary sponsor!
For area businesses, this horse show and family event provides access to a high-end consumer-oriented market. For individuals, supporting the show is a way to be an important part of a 75 year Marion Horse Show tradition.
Marion Horse show offers access to an upper tier group of consumers with history of supporting sponsor businesses. Sponsor benefits packages can be customized to meet specific marketing plans. Our July 3rd, show we expect up to 500 visitors, weather permitting.
Riders, trainers, and spectators represent a natural market for high-quality products and services. This sector is well-educated with disposable income and time to spend pursuing hobbies. The United States Equestrian Federation’s recent research attests to the buying power and influence of horse enthusiasts, of whom 66% have college degrees, 33% post-graduate education, and 80% make or influence purchasing decisions at work. The majority of equestrians are between 34 and 54 years of age with an average income of $185,000. Over 38% process a net worth of over $500,000.
1000 copies of a four-color, souvenir program are printed and distributed to exhibitors, trainers, and spectators at the show. The programs are read page-by-page and often kept as mementos for years. Banners with sponsor’s business names around the horse park are visible to all who enter the show grounds throughout the the day. Announcements over the loudspeaker are audible throughout the grounds, while our social media posts reach thousands. Lunch & Beverages in the VIP tent are a wonderful way to meet prospective clients and spend time with friends new and old.
All proceeds from the horse show benefit the Marion Horse Show, Inc. a 501C3 non profit. Proceeds also support the Charles R. Washburn Memorial Park who manages the Trust for the Equestrian Park space for use of the community for events and ongoing maintenance of the horse show rings and buildings.
