St. Louis, MO (December 16, 2010) – Arenus, a premier provider of innovative health and nutritional products for pets and horses, is pleased to announce they will continue to be a Presenting Sponsor of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) during 2011. Arenus was a Presenting Sponsor for the Breeders Championship for the USDF throughout 2010 as well.

“Arenus is pleased to continue as a Presenting Sponsor of the USDF Breeders Championship,” said Simone Pophal, DVM, PhD, Arenus Business Manager. “We have developed a great partnership with the USDF and look forward to a fantastic 2011.“

Throughout 2010, Arenus served as a Presenting Sponsor for the Breeders Championship Series, including a presentation at Dressage at Devon. “We saw some amazing, beautiful and talented horses and it was our pleasure to take part in the 35th Annual Dressage at Devon,” said Melissa Bennington, Arenus Sales Specialist, North East US.

During Dressage at Devon, horses from Mary Alice Malone’s Iron Spring Farm took home several Breeders Championships, including the USDF Foal Championship won by Florence; the USDF Colt Championship won by El Paso ISF; and the USDF Mare Championship won by the famous Iron Spring Farm mare Rabiola, who also won more than 10 championships while at Dressage at Devon.

“Rabiola is a fantastic mare and she is a joy to watch,” Bennington said, adding that Arenus produces important products for mares and foals. “Arenus produces Steadfast Broodmare, a feed supplement specifically designed to meet the special nutritional needs of broodmares and supports fetal development. We are pleased that so many breeders are using Steadfast Broodmare and look forward to more mare owners learning about the product. Arenus also produces Steadfast Equine Growth, a health product specifically designed to help growing foals develop strong bones and healthy cartilage, tendons, ligaments and soft tissues.”

Arenus also presented the USDF Filly Championship at Dressage at Devon to Duet MF, owned by Maryanna Haymon of Marydell Farms in Columbus, North Carolina. De Feiner Star, owned by Greg Strait and Melinda Brown, won the USDF Stallion Championship.

“Our partnership with the USDF during 2010 also included a great experience at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington. We held a contest at the USDF Member’s Lounge and gave away a Vespucci Bridle, donated by World Equestrian Brands, LLC, and a gift certificate for Arenus products,” Pophal said. “Arenus also took part in the USDF Convention in Jacksonville and we had a wonderful experience. Vicky Esquivel, of Kentucky, and Sue Bender, of South Carolina, both won gift certificates for Arenus products.”
