FITS Renews Sponsorship with USEA for 2019

By Rebecca Lertora - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to continue their partnership with FITS Riding, LTD for 2019. As a longtime supporter of the USEA, FITS has provided sponsorship to several programs. As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), FITS will provide prizes for competitors at the AEC which will be held August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. In addition, FITS will now be a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2019 Adult Team Championships, Intercollegiate Eventing Team Championships, and USEA Classic Series, providing prizes to winners in those events as well.

“FITS Riding is thrilled to be a sponsor with USEA for another great year,” said Lida Bard of FITS. “We love being able to support eventers at all levels and are happy for the opportunity to provide prizes to top riders every year."

FITS offers several styles of distinctive breeches, coats, tech shirts, stock ties, and other accessories. Their patented products are the result of an intense pursuit of giving the wearer an enduring advantage and comfortable fit. They continually research the physics of riding, the spectrum of technical materials, and the newest sewing techniques, seeking the characteristics that matter most—high performance, outstanding comfort, and flattering fit. FITS riding wear is the first and only choice for thousands of equestrian athletes.

“FITS continues to be a wonderful partner to U.S. eventing,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Eventers love their apparel not only for the beautiful styles and comfortable material but for its performance. Every piece has science and art blended together to make exceptional riding wear.”
