Purina Canada Launches Partnership with CQHA

Purina Canada Connects with the Canadian Quarter Horse Association – A new partnership Brings Equine Nutritional Education and Benefits to CQHA Members

Joint Communiqué

Woodstock, Ontario – February 25, 2021 – Being close to our customers has always been our top priority. We are pleased to announce our partnership with the Canadian Quarter Horse Association (CQHA). Together we look forward to bringing all CQHA members online support, nutrition education and exclusive offers on our equine products.

For any horse owner, whether they are competing and want the best for their athlete or simply enjoy the company of their equine companion, finding the right product can often be a challenge. They regularly look for products that meet their horses’ requirements. Purina Canada’s offering of feeds and supplements, made in our specialized, drug-free facility in Strathroy, Ontario can meet that demand.

One of the benefits of this national agreement between CQHA and Purina will begin rolling out special offers to members across Canada.

The promotions for 2021 will be offered to provinces at different times between March and June (included). The promotions between provinces may vary dependent on the different distribution abilities, as well as the Purina Equine Nutrition Consultants availability.

The first promotion will be offered in March to CQHA members in Alberta; and will also be offered to members of the Quarter Horse Association of Alberta.

Purina’s product offering provides all horses, no matter where they are in Canada, the premium nutrition they need to stay healthy and bring their best to each trail ride, riding lesson or to the show ring.

Purina Canada s'associe à la Canadian Quarter Horse Association - Une nouvelle collaboration apporte des bénéfices aux membres ainsi que de l’éducation sur la nutrition du cheval aux membres de l'ACQH

Communiqué conjoint

Saint-Hubert, Québec – 26 février 2021 –

Être proche de nos clients a toujours été notre priorité absolue. Nous sommes heureux d’annoncer notre partenariat avec l’Association Canadienne du Quarter Horse (ACQH/CQHA).

Ensemble, nous sommes impatients de proposer à tous les membres de l’ACQH un soutien en ligne, de l’éducation sur la nutrition du cheval ainsi que des offres exclusives sur nos produits équins.

Pour tout propriétaire de cheval, qu’il soit en compétition et qu’il veuille le meilleur pour son athlète ou bien qu’il apprécie simplement la compagnie de son compagnon équin, trouver le bon produit peut souvent être un défi. La recherche régulière de produits répondant aux exigences de leurs chevaux est constante. L’offre d’aliments et de suppléments de Purina Canada, fabriqués dans notre établissement spécialisé et sans médicaments à Strathroy, en Ontario, peut répondre à cette demande.

L’un des avantages de cette entente nationale entre l’ACQH et Purina est le déploiement des offres spéciales aux membres, partout au Canada.

Les promotions pour 2021 seront offertes aux provinces à des moments différents entre Mars et Juin inclusivement. Les promotions entre les provinces peuvent varier en fonction des différentes capacités de distribution, ainsi que de la disponibilité des consultants en nutrition équine de Purina.

La première promotion sera offerte en Mars aux membres de l’ACQH en Alberta et sera également offerte aux membres de la Quarter Horse Association of Alberta.

L’offre de produits de Purina fournit à tous les chevaux, peu importe où ils se trouvent au Canada, la nutrition de première qualité dont ils ont besoin pour rester en bonne santé et être à leur meilleur lors de chaque randonnée, cours d’équitation ou sur le terrain de compétition.

William Holliday

In Memoriam

With great sadness, the Board of Directors of the Canadian Quarter Horse Association (CQHA) advises
that friend and board mentor, William (Bill) Holliday age 64, of Goodwater Saskatchewan, passed away
on September 29, 2020. Bill is survived by his wife Jayne Hunter, his daughter Lauren, son Marshall, and
his animal companions: Cooper, P.J. and Buster. Bill was a good and honorable man. He was loving and
devoted to his family. He remained a steadfast friend. He was an accomplished lawyer and fine rancher.


Bill served two terms as a member of the Board of Directors of CQHA. Bill’s contributions to our
organization have been invaluable. He drafted the CQHA’s Constitution and subsequent By-Law
amendments; applied for CQHA’s trademarks; submitted annual not-for-profit returns to Industry
Canada; maintained the official CQHA Minutes Book and Corporate Seal at his office in Weyburn. Bill
was a generous corporate sponsor of the 2008 American Quarter Horse Youth World Cup held in
London, Ontario. Preserving the history of Quarter Horses in Canada and promoting the working ranch
horse sector of the industry were two of Bill’s highest priorities as a director.

A private gathering was held at Bill’s ranch house to honor and remember him. Should family and
friends wish, charitable donations may be made in his memory to the Weyburn and District Hospital
Foundation. Arrangements were entrusted to RD Family Funeral Chapel & Crematorium, Weyburn, SK
1-888-848-0333). Expressions of sympathy to the family may be sent to the website at
www.rdfuneralchapel.com “Honouring Life and Celebrating Memories”

If you are a Canadian who owns or breeds Quarter Horses, there is no better time to join the Canadian Quarter Horse Association (CQHA), now offering free memberships to all Quarter Horse owners and breeders in Canada.

Now, among the many exciting initiatives planned for 2021, and thanks to an exciting new partnership with Canadian Horse Journal (CHJ), CQHA members are eligible for select benefits including reduced subscription rates to Canadian Horse Journal (CHJ), Canada’s award-winning national horse magazine published by Horse Community Journals Inc (HCJ).

Within the Canadian horse community, the CHJ-CQHA partnership represents a growing trend of like-minded horse people working together to strengthen and promote our industry. Every month, more than 100,000 Canadians rely on HCJ’s multimedia platforms to deliver the industry news they need and the content that connects them to their equine interests and passions. This powerful communication vehicle will now include the latest CQHA news, promotions, resources for breeders and owners, programs such as “Q Horse Heroes” — recognizing Canada’s unsung heroes within the community — contests and special offers.

Quarter Horses are one of the world’s most versatile horses, and you will find them at virtually every horse barn and horse event in Canada, no matter the discipline. As of 2019, the tally of Quarter Horses in Canada was 242,516, representing more than one-quarter of the total Canadian herd. With over 13,000 members in Canada, and now by partnering with Canadian Horse Journal, CQHA is making exceptional strides to represent, educate, promote, and grow their association.
