By Kaleigh Collett - USEA Staff | Press Release

The United States Eventing Association, Inc. (USEA) is excited to announce that long-time partner, Dubarry of Ireland, will return as an “Official Bronze Level Sponsor of the AEC” in 2023. Not only will Dubarry be on-site as a vendor in the USEA Sponsor Village at this year’s American Eventing Championships, presented by Nutrena Feeds, but they will also be providing two pairs of iconic Dubarry boots as prizes for competitors. The 2023 AEC will take place from Aug. 29 through Sept. 3 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

Dubarry of Ireland was established in 1938 in the heart of Galway on Ireland’s West Coast as a co-operative company to create employment in a small town called Ballinasloe. The exacting skills of local craftsmen and women soon earned Dubarry a reputation for excellent workmanship in the design and manufacturing of fine leather shoes. One of Dubarry’s most well-known designs, the Country Boot Galway, was conceived in the mid-1990’s and is still a crowd favorite among equestrians. Since it's launch in America at the Rolex, now Land Rover, Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, Dubarry has become a household name in equestrian sports for their dependable and fashionable footwear and apparel.

“Dubarry of Ireland has been a trusted parrtner of the sport of eventing and the USEA for over a decade, and we thank them for their continued support,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Danny, Kyle and the rest of the team at Dubarry USA are wonderful to work with, and I know I speak for our membership when I say that we love the durability and comfort of Dubarry boots! If you haven’t experienced Dubarry’s expansive line of shoes and apparel yet, make sure to stop by their booth in Sponsor Village at the AEC.”

Events A-Z: Bayou Gulch Horse Trials

The Colorado Horse Park (CHP) in Parker, Colorado, has deep roots in the sport of eventing. Originally known as High Prairie Farms, owner Helen Krieble purchased the property in the early 1990s with one dream: hosting horse trials. That dream took off and for many years High Prairie Farm was host to many eventing competitions. Krieble later donated the ground to Douglas County with the agreement that the land would be used for equestrian sport and the CHP was born.
