Columbus, OH — The USTA is now offering a logo exclusive to the Standardbred breed, which may be used for all pleasure- and show-horse enthusiasts.
The idea for the logo came from Elizabeth Tewksbury of the Maine Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization, who sought a breed-specific logo to help identify Standardbreds at competitions. The final design, which was voted on by nearly 600 people at www.ustrotting.com, was designed by USTA Internet graphic designer Autumn Schmidt.
T-shirts with the new logo are now available for pre-order for $10. Oval bumper stickers featuring the new logo will be available later for $1.
The Standardbred brand will also be available for SEP members to take and have embroidered onto saddle pads, saddle covers, stable blankets and apparel.
