By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the renewed partnership with Dubarry of Ireland for the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2021 AEC, Dubarry of Ireland will award two pairs of Dubarry boots for AEC prizes. This year’s AEC will be held on August 31-September 5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“Dubarry is thrilled to return as a sponsor of the [USEA] American Eventing Championships. The opportunity to support eventing at every level in one competition is unique and creates a community spirit that is a joy to be a part of,” said Danny Hulse of Dubarry of Ireland.

Since 1937, the Irish-owned company has built an extraordinary reputation worldwide for excelling in the design and manufacture of footwear that marries tradition, technology, style, comfort, and function, placing Dubarry firmly at the very top of the marketplace as an innovator, a leader, and above all, a trusted and respected name. Dubarry’s signature boot is the Galway boot, the perfect all-purpose outdoor footwear for any weather. Its full GORE-TEX® lining provides complete waterproofing, and the DryFast-DrySoft™ exterior leather offers protection, comfort, temperature control, durability, and style.

“I love my Dubarry boots and wear them all the time!” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Dubarry boots are the best all-purpose boots available, and eventers all over the world would agree. We are extremely grateful to have their continued support for the AEC.”
