Devoucoux Returns to Sponsor the AEC

By Sydney Rowe - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is once again pleased to announce the renewed partnership with Devoucoux as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor, Devoucoux will generously provide $2,500 worth of AEC prizes to AEC prize winners. This year’s AEC will be held on August 30-September 4 at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana.

"Devoucoux has been wholeheartedly dedicated to the horse and rider partnership since 1985. At Devoucoux, "Made in France" is part of our concern for quality. Our high standards, know-how, and innovation are recognized throughout the world. Our saddles and accessories have become icons; thriving on elegance, accuracy, and comfort," said Max GRANET, Devoucoux Brand Director.

Devoucoux is a French-based saddlery company whose craftsmanship and innovation has been producing quality products since 1985. They are masters of their craft and strive to make all their saddles show the passion they have for the sport. By combining the latest technology, such as D3D panels and veg-tanning, with hand stitching, Devoucoux has created a saddle that is the epitome of comfort for both horse and rider. With innovation in mind, they focused heavily on making their products as eco-friendly as possible. They have a commitment to sustainability that they show by offering a saddle resale project where they take old or unused saddles and bring new life to them to cut down on wasted material. Recently, to expand their efforts, Devoucoux has developed the GT Option. A revolutionary saddle design that utilizes scrap and recycled cork as a way to cut down on CO2 emissions and promote animal welfare without sacrificing quality.

“The USEA is pleased to partner with Devoucoux again, who have been long-time supporters of eventing,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “We look forward to seeing them at the AEC as both a sponsor and a vendor!”

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
