The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the renewed partnership with Auburn Laboratories, Inc. As a Silver Level Sponsor of the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC), Auburn Laboratories will provide gift certificates for one 12 oz bottle of APF to the top three finishers in every AEC division. This year’s AEC will be held August 31-September 5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“We are pleased to continue our sponsorship and support of the American Eventing Championships, and we wish all of the competitors and spectators a fun and safe event,” said Dr. Van Noy of Auburn Labs.
Beginning in 1993, Joy and Michael used adaptogenic herbal formulas to improve not only their own health and well-being but also that of the horses in Dr. Van Noy’s San Francisco Bay Area veterinary practice. The initial formula they introduced to the equine supplement market in 1999 was APF – Advanced Protection Formula. Developed to provide general support and overall stress protection, it is still the first choice for many owners whose horses require metabolic and immune support for the effects of insulin resistance and Cushings disease. APF Pro was introduced to address the specific issues facing the top equine athletes – immune support, gastric health, muscle building, energy, endurance, and recovery.
As part of their commitment to provide customers with exceptional herbal products with repeatable and reliable health benefits, they have identified several laboratories which specialize in quantitative analysis of botanical ingredients utilizing high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). By using state-of-the-art laboratory analysis of key botanical markers, they are able to consistently deliver products with reliable health benefits for animals.
“Auburn Laboratories has been a longtime supporter of U.S. Eventing and we are proud to continue the partnership for this year’s AEC,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “This is a wonderful company that is committed to horse welfare. Joy and Michael Van Noy are always a pleasure to work with. Please make sure to thank them as they have done so much for the sport of eventing.”
