The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is happy to announce the return of Bit of Britain as the Title Sponsor of the USEA Overall Leaderboard. As a longtime sponsor and supporter of the USEA, Bit of Britain will generously continue to offer USEA members a 5% discount on all orders placed through their website.
“26 years ago I was introduced to the sport of eventing. I was struck by the horsemanship it took to be an eventer. I also recognized the equipment was not the quality that I would like to be using in such a demanding sport. I took it upon myself to make change happen,” says John Nunn, owner and CEO of Bit of Britain.
“I steered my company towards bringing really great products into the industry at a price eventers could afford. At the same time, I developed a wholesale company and named it Nunn Finer Products to take those products, and those I was inventing, into the eventing community, then selling them to stores nationwide. This allowed customers to have choices and get great new products from their local stores. I think I have achieved just that. I'm pleased that both companies have been able to give back in the way that they have with everything from sponsored riders to scholarships to a discount for every USEA member that buys from the Bit of Britain website.” Nunn continues, “26 years ago I implemented my "Give Back" attitude and I am proud to be continuing with the programs we developed as well as my association and support of the USEA. It has been a pleasure and an honor.”
Bit of Britain specializes in supplying top quality products to meet the needs of riders in the eventing community, as well as health care products and supplies to meet the needs of any horse owner. Bit of Britain takes pride in selling trusted, well made products which has made the company a top retailer in the industry.
“Year in and year out John Nunn and Bit of Britain continue to support U.S. Eventing. Not only is Bit of Britain an amazing partner but they are also one of the best places to find the equipment that eventers want and need,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “We encourage every USEA member to use the discount offered to our members! Please also remember to say thank you the next time you see John Nunn and the Bit of Britain staff.”

When my daughter Jacquelyn turned 9, she and I started taking riding lessons together for some quality mother-daughter time. I had hoped to share my love for horses with her so we gave it a try. A few years of lessons led to a deeper commitment - horsemanship - and Jackie showed the fortitude for the hard gritty work required.
