Young Stockdale Secures International Headline Sponsor
21-year-old, International showjumper, Joe Stockdale has clinched a headline sponsorship deal with Equine America. Equine America will prefix the names of Joe’s top string of horses and he will ride in their logo and colours. This forward-thinking partnership is a great boost in the current climate of COVID-19. Equine America have confirmed their commitment to underpin the young talented rider, Joe Stockdale as he grows on the worldwide stage.
Joe said “I am excited to work with Equine America as their products are formulated by a world leading equine nutritionist. I’m thrilled that they have the confidence to support me in the early stages of my career.”
Lee Middleton, MD of Equine America added “The world is a different place now and most of the brand awareness is online. Supporting Joe with his talent and large online following puts Equine America in touch with the worldwide younger generation of equestrians. Joe has a very strong string of horses and I will be proud to hear Equine America, announced in front of the horse’s name, every time he is jumping in the ring, watched online or at shows” Joe jumped on his first Senior Nations Cup Team a few months ago in Spain, only two years after taking up showjumping professionally. It is clear that this is only the start of his exciting career, however future pursuits will now be undertaken with the backing of Equine America. The company will have their logo in a prime position on Joe’s lorries and the Team clothing and keep his horses in top condition with their products.
Team Stockdale started documenting their journey on social media and with YouTube vlogs in 2018 and managed to combine a new generation of followers with some of the long-standing supporters – a winning combination, and one that Equine American are now part of.
Joe explains: “As a team we aim to combine innovation with hard work and dedication. Owners and Sponsors are the back bone of the sport so if I can inform and promote while striving to achieve the best results with the optimum care and welfare of the horses then I will be happy.”
