"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."

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.”

Bellamy, an Oldenburg/Thoroughbred gelding of unknown breeding, came to Tamra Smith’s farm in Southern California with his mane half-way down his neck and filled with burrs. Bellamy had been sitting in a field for a little over a year after unseating several riders in a row and Smith, known for being good with tricky horses, agreed to take him on.
