Devoucoux Continues Partnership with USEA as Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 AEC

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the continued partnership with Devoucoux. Devoucoux will be coming on this year as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC). Devoucoux will generously provide $2,500 worth of AEC prizes for the 22 AEC reserve champions. This year’s AEC will be held August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“Devoucoux is overjoyed to be partnered with the USEA as we have a long history and passion for the eventing discipline. It is a partnership we have been developing for years and look forward towards many more years of continued work,” said Jerome Mothe, North America Sales Director of Devoucoux.

Devoucoux is a French-based company that was founded in 1985. With deep French roots, their products are made in their workshops in Bidart (Pays Basque). Devoucoux products thrive on elegance, accuracy, and comfort. Some of their signature saddles include the Biarritz, Devoucoux’s first model, the Chiberta, designed specifically for eventing, and the Makila, their dressage saddle favored by eventers.

With an innovative nature, Devoucoux developed D3D technology, which uses 3D scanners and the latest modeling software to create sophisticated padding in terms of performance and comfort for horse and rider. Thanks to its innovative design and use of single-block alveolar foam, this padding improves the spread of pressure due to the rider across the horse’s back while optimizing the saddle’s dynamism.

“We are very thankful for Devoucoux’s longstanding support,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Devoucoux saddles and accessories are made of the highest quality. The expert craftsmanship and their attention to detail can be seen in every product they offer. Devoucoux is a company loved by eventers and we are proud to partner with such a well-respected company.”
