What it means to be an MCTA Sponsor

MCTA runs one recognized event in May at Shawan Downs, which attracts the interest of hundreds of eventers wanting to experience the thrill of riding on the storied grounds of the Legacy Chase. In addition, we offer two well-respected unrecognized events during the summer for those looking for a more relaxed yet professional competitive environment and a popular Year End Awards Banquet and Silent Auction.  *New in 2021* — Unrecognized event added at Shawan Downs!

Sponsors have a wide range of opportunities to gain exposure to hundreds of competitors and attendees. We are dedicated to improving and expanding our member and sponsor services, including an increasing online presence on our active Facebook page, website, as well as customized email services that reach 1000’s of loyal followers year-round. Our Chair of Marketing & Sponsorships is a marketing professional with over 10 years of experience in digital and content marketing.
