The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to welcome back Dubarry of Ireland as a sponsor of the 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor, Dubarry will be providing two pairs of Dubarry boots as prizes at the AEC, which will be held August 30-September 2, 2018 at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado.
"Dubarry is thrilled to continue its sponsorship of the American Eventing Championships,” the company stated. “The sport of eventing is near and dear to the Dubarry brand and they believe strongly in the USEA's efforts to enrich the sport across every level of competition."
The Dubarry collections blend comfort, versatility, and style to create a unique range of footwear and clothing. Dubarry’s signature boot is the Galway boot, the perfect all purpose outdoor footwear for any weather. It’s 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,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “They are dependable and they stay dry in all conditions. Eventers all over the world agree and they have become a mainstay in our tack trunks. Add to that all the other excellent apparel offerings by Dubarry and I consider U.S. Eventing lucky to have the support of this great company. Dubarry is second to none in standing by their products and it isn’t worth your money to settle for anything less.”
Be sure to stop by the Dubarry booth located in the trade fair at the Colorado Horse Park during this year’s AEC to check out Dubarry boots and apparel. The USEA would like to thank the team at Dubarry for their continued support of our sport and look forward to working closely with them.

We've been riding the "corona-coaster" for several weeks now, but with the hopeful return to competition on the horizon, Nicole Brown checks in with USEA CEO Rob Burk, USEA President Max Corcoran, and Chair of the FEI Eventing Committee David O'Connor for an update on what things will look like as we get back to business.
Like most professionals, I tend to do gridwork for most of the winter, before transitioning to coursework through the competition season. I find this exercise to be a good middle ground exercise as you have a little bit of a gymnastic combined with two easy bending exercises to set you up well for doing courses.
In 1993, Stephen Bradley had something to prove. It was the year after the Barcelona Olympic Games where Bradley had two unexpected refusals at the water complex. “It was very disappointing and a huge learning curve for me,” said Bradley. Little did he know, his path to redemption would result in winning the Burghley Horse Trials CCI4* (now CCI5*-L) – a victory so great that only two Americans have achieved: Bruce Davidson Sr. in 1974 and Bradley in 1993.
