Downunder Horsemanship, home of clinician Clinton Anderson, is proud to add SmartPak to its team of sponsors. At the beginning of the year, SmartPak will take a presence at Clinton Anderson Walkabout Tours and Clinton will join the company’s “Team SmartPak” of outstanding trainers and competitors.

“We’re very excited to be partnering with a world renowned trainer and clinician like Clinton Anderson who puts so much emphasis on good horsemanship and horse care, the core values that we as a company try to align ourselves with. SmartPak powers healthy horses and happy riders and that’s a great compliment to Clinton’s mission of helping people have better relationships with their horses. He has really revolutionized horse training with his Downunder Horsemanship Method; giving horse owners around the country unprecedented access to the training tools they need to be successful with their horses,” explains Rebecca Goss, VP of Western Marketing at SmartPak.

Clinton adds, “Needless to say, we’re very excited to join forces with SmartPak in our effort to continue to help horse owners develop the best partnership with their horses. We’re a natural fit together, given our shared focus on excellence in all aspects of horsemanship and horse care. And beyond that, I just love their product – I’ve been using SmartPaks for my personal horses, and it’s unbelievable how they’ve organized and simplified the feeding process.”
