The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce that Dubarry of Ireland has returned as a sponsor for the 2014 calendar year.

They return as a Silver Level Sponsor of the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), as well as a Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Gold Cup. On top of their program sponsorships, Dubarry of Ireland will be awarding a pair of their renowned boots to the winner of the Intermediate Championship.

“Dubarry is proud to continue our association with the USEA and to help sustain the great work they do in supporting the growth and health of the sport,” stated Danny Hulse, General Manager of Dubarry of Ireland (USA).

Dubarry of Ireland is recognized around the world and respected for their comfort, protection and style. Dubarry footwear and clothing cover all platforms, being stylish enough for Royal family members, and practical enough for stable workers. From chic jackets and accessories to the iconic Galway boot, Dubarry has become a brand that is highly preferred by most equestrians.

“We are delighted to welcome back our loyal sponsor, Dubarry,” said USEA CEO Jo Whitehouse. “The USEA along with our members have developed a strong relationship with the company, and we are proud to partner with them again.”

Dubarry of Ireland will be represented at the AEC, which takes place at the Texas Rose Horse Park in Tyler, Texas September 25-28, 2014.

The Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series is well underway, and riders continue to qualify at the remaining events for the final at the AEC in September.

About Dubarry

Over 70 years ago a co-operative was formed to provide work in a small town called Ballinasloe in the heart of Galway on Ireland’s glorious West Coast. Taking its name from a famous French courtesan, Madame du Barry, the company’s formative years were defined through the making of fine quality shoes during which time they were fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard-working craftsmen and women. Dubarry’s reputation as one of Ireland’s most respected and successful companies was born out of the workforce’s deep-rooted pride and ambition to produce footwear of the very highest quality. Over the years Dubarry has expanded its international sourcing network, working closely with carefully selected contract partners who share our high standards and desire to work with the best of components, raw materials and unique designs. Dubarry is now recognized around the world and wherever we are we like to feel that we take a little bit of Ireland with us because when something’s good it’s worth sharing.

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.
