The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce the renewed partnership with Auburn Laboratories, Inc. as a Silver Level Sponsor of the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). Auburn Laboratories will provide gift certificates for one bottle of APF to the top three winners in every AEC division. This year’s AEC will be held August 30-September 4 at the beautiful Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana.
"We have always been great supporters of the sport of eventing and are delighted to continue our support for the American Eventing Championships,” said Dr. Michael Van Noy of Auburn Laboratories. “Our mission has always been the health and wellbeing of our equine partners. The sport of eventing shows the incredible partnership that can be developed between horse and rider. It is our belief that this partnership is founded on the rider's great care and commitment to their horse's fitness and wellbeing. Nutritional support for these athletes is critical to allowing them a long and successful career, at any level of competition."
Beginning in 1993, Joy and Michael Van Noy 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, and Joy and Michael Van Noy are always a pleasure to work with.”

It was a weekend to remember for eventers from 13 colleges as they convened at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina, from May 26-28 for the 2023 USEA Intercollegiate Championship. The 23 teams gave their all and had tons of fun!
The 2023 Woodside Spring H.T. served as a celebration of the successes of the West Coast eventers that competed in the Kentucky Three-Day Event, as well as what’s in store for the future of the sport in California. On the eve of competition on Thursday, organizers at the Woodside Horse Trials held a party in honor of both Tamie Smith’s historic win in the Kentucky five-star and the team of cross country builders led by Bert Wood that unveiled new courses at The Horse Park. Derek di Grazia designed the new Advanced and Intermediate tracks, with Wood designing the new tracks for Preliminary through Starter.
