The United States Eventing Association, Inc. (USEA) is pleased to welcome Devoucoux back as an “Official Bronze Level Sponsor of the AEC.” This Aug. 29 through Sept. 3, Devoucoux will be at the 2023 USEA American Eventing Championships, presented by Nutrena Feeds, in the USEA Sponsor Village displaying their line of luxury saddles and accessories at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Devoucoux will also provide gift certificates as prizes for the reserve champions in all 24 AEC divisions.
Since 1985, Devoucoux has been wholeheartedly dedicated to the partnership between horse and rider. Their saddles and accessories require the expertise of six different master crafts within the saddlery profession, all of them central to the Devoucoux workshops in France. Devoucoux strives to constantly evolve their materials and processes to give their models elegance, expertise, and comfort. Innovative by nature, Devoucoux has no qualms about pairing up the latest technology with craftsmanship. Whether it is the DSD panels or veg-tanned leather, Devoucoux is constantly investing so that their products remain world leaders in the space.
“The USEA would like to thank Devoucoux for their continued support of the AEC,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “Devoucoux’s extensive line of saddles and accessories are well-loved and respected by our members, and we look forward to having them on-site at the AEC for competitors to experience the quality for themselves.”
