Featherlite Trailers, a leading horse trailer manufacturer, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Lynn Palm and Palm Partnership Training. Through this partnership, Featherlite Trailers is collaborating with Palm in the development of a horse trailer designed to be both horse friendly and female horse-owner friendly.

This year marks Palm's 40th year as a horse trainer, competitor and clinician. "Featherlite is excited to have the opportunity to team up with one of the most respected and sought-after horse clinicians," Featherlite National Sales Manager Randy Lewis said. "Lynn Palm's methods of connecting the horse to its rider have had an impressive impact on horse owners for many years. In addition, Lynn also has a stellar list of accomplishments as a competitor."

Palm has been a Featherlite horse trailer owner since 1990 and still owns and uses her first Featherlite trailer. Her insight as a competitor and trailer owner as well as a trainer who has worked with thousands of fellow horse owners will be influential in the development of the Lynn Palm Signature Trailer. The trailer, whose design is a closely held secret, is scheduled to be unveiled in coordination with Palm's appearance at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games being held September 25-October 10, 2010.

"(A partnership with Featherlite) means that I am working with a company in the horse industry that cares for horses and owners," Palm said. "I love that we are working together to develop a new combination of features that will give more comfort to our horses. I love that Featherlite knows that women are a major part of the horse industry, and we are also working together to develop trailers that are female friendly."

Palm is one of the few horse clinicians who also has a proven competition record, which includes 34 reserve and world championships and four AQHA Super Horse titles. She was also named the AQHA Female Equestrian of the Year by the Women's Athletic Association, was chosen to perform exhibitions during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and was the 2007 AQHA Horsewoman of the Year. Palm is also a contributor to many equine publications.

Featherlite is the nation's oldest aluminum specialty trailer brand and is the official trailer of American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and other equine organizations. In addition to horse trailers, Featherlite manufactures stock trailers, car trailers, utility trailers, ATV trailers, racecar transporters and other specialty trailers.
