The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to have renewed our partnership with Equilume for the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). Equilume will join once more as a Bronze Level Sponsor and will provide four gift certificates for an Equilume Cashel Light Mask. The four gift certificates will be awarded to the Champions of the Advanced Final, the Preliminary Amateur, the Junior Young Rider Preliminary, and the Training Amateur divisions. This year’s AEC will be held August 30-September 4 at Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana.
“On behalf of Equilume, I am delighted to announce our renewed partnership with the USEA at AEC for 2022,” said Ronan Cox, CEO of Equilume. “We are proud to be a part of a competition that shines a light on the sport's top equine athletes and riders. This also presents more and more eventing horses the opportunity to experience the benefits of our scientifically developed lighting products for improved health, well-being and performance. We are looking forward to some great competition in Montana and wish all competitors the very best of luck!”
The Equilume Cashel Light Mask is a rechargeable light mask that produces 15 hours of biologically effective blue light daily to help stimulate hormonal responses in mares and competition horses. This can spark reproductive health and help get your show horse seal-skinned and ready to shine. With Equilume being the leading company in light therapy solutions, they are sure to take you and your horse to victory.
“We are very excited to partner with such an innovative company like Equilume,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The health and safety of event horses is paramount to the USEA, and we are delighted to work with a company dedicated to the welfare and therapy solutions to our beloved equines,”
