Now in its 14th year, the Gold Cup Series consists of 11 qualifying competitions at the Advanced and CIC3* levels which will culminate at the 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships, August 29-September 2, 2018, at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado. The $40,000 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division serves as the Gold Cup Final at the AEC and the winner of the division will be named the 2018 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Champion.

“Our partnership with the USEA since 2005 continues to be one of our core relationships,” states Allyn Mann, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Luitpold Animal Health. “The Adequan Gold Cup Series and Championship is an important component of our sponsorship.

The 411 on Colic

As the season begins to turn, the temperature begins to drop, turnout time becomes more limited, schedules shift to accommodate the waning daylight and the possibility for a colicky horse increases. While the exact environmental causes of colic are not well understood, a commonly accepted theory is that any abrupt changes to a horse’s environment or schedule can increase the risk of colic.
