Partnerships play an important role in the success of GAIN Equine Nutrition. Along with our on-going relationships with customers and suppliers, we are committed to supporting the equine industry through a number of key partnerships.
We have a long standing relationship with the IHWT and we are delighted to continue our support towards such a worthy charity. The IHWT do incredible work in the rehabilitation and rehoming of both horses and ponies and we are very happy that we can offer them nutritional support to help them enrich the lives of these horses and ponies. The Irish Horse Welfare Trust was established in 1999 to help the plight of horses in Ireland. They rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses that have been abandoned, neglected or ill-treated.
GAIN Equine Nutrition have extended their partnership with The Curragh racecourse to create a three race series known as the ‘Champion Collection’ series. The three part series acts as a stepping-stone for two-year-old horses graduating from listed (First Flier) through to Group 3 (Marble Hill Stakes) up to Group 2, which is our prestigious Railway Stakes race that takes place on Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Day. Many of our customers are deeply involved in both the racing and bloodstock industries and we see this collaboration as a unique opportunity to underpin our commitment to these sectors.
GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to support the eventing sector through our partnership with Camphire International, which is a highly competitive 3 star event that attracts top class international event riders to the beautiful setting along the Blackwater River in West Waterford.
