Yanmar America to Partner with the Carolina Horse Park

Official 2023 Tractor and UTV Sponsor


The Carolina Horse Park is delighted to announce that Yanmar America, the Carolina International CCI4*-S Sponsor, has signed on to remain at the Carolina Horse Park as the 2023 Official Tractor and UTV Sponsor.

A leading manufacturer of tractors, UTVs and industrial equipment for rural communities, Yanmar America, will provide two of its Longhorn UTVs for use by the course emergency medical technicians (EMT), and will also showcase its tractors at the Park throughout the year.

The power, precise handling and comfort of the Longhorn makes even the longest day feel that much shorter. These UTVs tackle heavy loads with the help of a standard center-mounted, heavy-duty 2-inch receiver-style hitch capable of towing up to 1,500 pounds. Plus, enjoy a spacious interior and available electronic power steering (EPS) that will make you feel like queen, or king, of the barn.

“We are very excited and look forward to working with the Carolina Horse Park to support the equine community throughout the year,” said Jon Richardson, Director, Rural Lifestyle Division. “Yanmar America has long supported bringing communities and people together in the shared excitement of sports and is working to develop future generations through sports sponsorships.”

“Yanmar America was an incredible sponsor for the Carolina International CCI4*-S. Having Yanmar remain an integral part of the Park is both exciting and possibly life-changing for the safety of our competitors,” said Shannon Habenicht, Director of Development and Communications at the Carolina Horse Park. “Their tractors and UTVs are top notch. Our EMTs will have reliable Yanmar equipment to provide support for the competitors. We will also have a permanent display of the distinctive red Yanmar tractors for visitors to check out.”
