    In the tradition of the venerable Fiesta of the Spanish Horse, a new springtime event will bring the Los Angeles Equestrian Center to life April 25-28—the inaugural Burbank Showcase Multi Breed Horse Show.

    The Burbank Showcase will honor the tradition originated and then run by Fiesta of the Spanish Horse for more than 20 years, helping the non-profit organization in its quest to find a cure for cancer, the beneficiary cause this year.

    Following the lines of the previous Fiesta Horse Shows, the Burbank Showcase will celebrate a great variety of horse breeds and disciplines, including American Saddlebreds, Andalusian, Friesian, Gypsy, Lusitanos, Mustangs, Open Dressage, Peruvian, Paso Horses, USEF English and Western Pleasure Classes, Western Dressage, and Working Equitation.

    The four-day horse show will have something for everyone, even special open classes for horses not registered in any of the above breeds. This year, the Saturday night Showcase will be free to the public. Food, drink and vendors will be available throughout the weekend.

    By becoming a sponsor of the Burbank Showcase, you, your ranch or company will receive valuable advertising and marketing exposure, including four days of promotion and announcements during the event itself, as well as recognition on the event’s website and social media. All sponsors are invited to present an award for the horse show class of their choice.

    The show will also have an extensive vendor area for those with products or services that would like to reach premier equestrian exhibitors, owners, trainers, and attendees. For more information, call (818) 842-8444 or visit www.CEAShowInfo.com. See ad on page 4.

    SmartPak is under a new owner, Covetrus—the standalone public company that resulted from the spin-off of the Henry Schein Animal Health business and its merger with Vets First Choice. Prior to this transaction, the majority ownership of SmartPak has been held by Henry Schein Animal Health since May of 2014.

    SmartPak’s mission continues to be healthy horses and happy riders. Moreover, the company says being part of this global leader in animal health will allow SmartPak to continue to innovate, educate, and serve its customers’ changing needs.

    “More than ever, we want to provide our customers with the best possible products and service,” said Fraser Cameron, CEO at SmartPak. “Being part of Covetrus enables us to stay true to our values and invest in our business.”

    SmartPak recently welcomed Cameron, formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Velcro Companies, as its CEO. “Since joining SmartPak, I’m amazed at the passion of our people, most of whom are riders themselves,” said Cameron. “I’ve joined this great team to make sure that we are deserving of our customers’ trust and that our commitment to our mission of Healthy Horses and Happy Riders is our number one priority.

    “Over the past few months, I’ve been working closely with the SmartPak team to learn about the business, our customers, and their horses from the inside, out,” Cameron added. “I’m looking forward to using my expertise to build upon SmartPak’s strong foundation and enhancing the exceptional attributes for which we are known and loved, including speedy, reliable shipping and world-class customer service.”

    SmartPak’s mission of Healthy Horses and Happy Riders will continue to be at the core of everything they do. As they double down on their commitment to their customers and their horses, they will strive to make life at the barn even easier with their innovative products, world-class customer service, and speedy, reliable shipping.
