Equine Canada proudly announces that the 2011 recipient of the Equine Canada Sponsor of the Year is Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc.
A Canadian owned company established in 1992, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. has been a longtime supporter of Canada’s equestrian athletes through individual sponsorships and a partnership with the Canadian Eventing Team.
Early in 2011, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. expanded partnership with Equine Canada and extended its financial and supply sponsorship support to include the disciplines of dressage and show jumping. Each month, horses from these three disciplines are considered for the ‘Omega Alpha Horse of the Month’ award, which recognizes a performance of exceptional merit, and provides the selected horse/rider combination with Omega Alpha product of their choice, up to a value of $1,000.
Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. continued to be the “Official Supplement Supplier to the Canadian Eventing Team,” but also became the official supplement supplier of Equine Canada and to the Canadian Equestrian Team. Equine Canada is very pleased to have Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals’ generous support of the horse recognition program and thrilled to have an expanded partnership with Omega Alpha.
“Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals is proud to be recognized as the sponsor of the Year by Equine Canada,” said Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. president, Dr. Gordon Chang. “We are proud to have played a part in the successes both at home and internationally of the Canadian Equestrian Athletes, both the riders and their equine partners. We look forward in the coming years to be a part of all future successes.”
At the Equine Canada Annual Awards Gala, on Friday, February 3, 2012, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Tina Bodfield, national sales director for Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc., accepted the Equine Canada Sponsor of the Year Award.
