The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce their continued corporate sponsor partnership with Standlee Hay Company, Inc., the “Official Forage of the USEA.” Standlee will remain a Gold Level Sponsor of the 2017 USEA American Eventing Championships as well as a Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Gold Cup Series, Future Event Horse Series and Young Event Horse Series.
“We are proud to support an organization dedicated to educating participants on the health and well-being of horses,” said Standlee Marketing Program Manager Cambria Peterson. “At Standlee, we believe in providing optimal nutrition through suppling the highest quality, home grown forage. When you feed them the best, they will feel their best.”
Founded in 1989, Standlee is a leader in the forage industry with over 18,000 acres of carefully managed alfalfa, timothy grass, orchard grass, alfalfa/grass and orchard/alfalfa hay. Located in the small town of Eden, Idaho, their facility is 142,000 square feet. Standlee is committed to growing, producing, manufacturing and selling the highest quality forage products in the world.
“Many people don’t realize that I earned a Master’s Degree studying equine nutrition at Virginia Tech,” said USEA Chief Executive Officer Rob Burk. “One of the first things we were taught was the importance of forage in the equine diet. Forage should be the single largest component of the equine diet and when someone asks you what you feed your horse, along with water and minerals, forage is what you should answer first. However, ask yourself… is feeding any random hay or grass good enough for your equine? Standlee takes the guess work out of the equation by supplying quality assured and tested forage. Not only does Standlee produce an incredibly high quality product, they are also an amazing sponsor for the sport of eventing.”
