Dubarry of Ireland Returns as AEC Sponsor

By Sydney Rowe - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has yet again renewed partnership with Dubarry of Ireland for the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2022 AEC, Dubarry of Ireland will award two pairs of Dubarry boots for AEC prizes. This year’s AEC will be held on August 30-September 4 at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana.

“As Dubarry celebrates our 85th anniversary this year, we are reminded that great sporting traditions survive the trials of time, in large part because of the dedication of sporting bodies. Organizations who work not only to encourage excellence at the top end of competitive sport, but also to nurture enthusiasm and talent at all levels. The USEA American Eventing Championships exemplifies this ethos, and we are proud to return as sponsors for 2022,” saidDanny Hulse, GM of Dubarry of Ireland (USA).

Dubarry has been crafting performance leather footwear since 1937 and has been beloved by members of the USEA for many years. This proud, Irish-owned company has perfected the manufacturing of footwear that is comfortable, durable, and stylish while still making great strides in innovating new ideas for the industry. Dubarry’s signature boot, the Galway boot, exemplifies the quality and engineering behind this trusted name. This all-purpose outdoor boot utilizes full GORE-TEX® lining making it completely waterproof with DryFast-DrySoft™ leather to protect your feet from the cold and mucky stalls.

“We are so grateful to have the continued support of Danny Hulse and his team at Dubarry of Ireland in the U.S.,” said CEO Rob Burk. “I wear my Dubarry boots all the time, and I know they have become a staple product amongst the U.S. Eventing community.”

Richard Mark Picken, 53, lost a courageous battle with cancer on August 13, 2022, dying peacefully at home. Born in the UK, he emigrated to Kentucky in 2013 and became an instant fixture on the US Equestrian Federation’s eventing and show jumping circuits. A top coach and trainer, he traveled throughout the USA and overseas with his students to competitions. He enjoyed coaching young riders and training inexperienced horses as much as he thrived under the pressure of an international championship.
