The USEA is happy to welcome Flair LLC back to the cast of sponsors for the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Bit of Britain. Flair will be in the same location as last year when the 2012 AEC gets underway on September 6-9 at Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, Georgia.
"FLAIR takes great pleasure in once again sponsoring the American Eventing Championships and looks forward to protecting and supporting the amazing Eventing Equine Athletes of the USEA in 2012 -- and in years to come." said Jim Chiapetta, DVM, Flair president.
For this year’s AEC, Flair will supply nasal strips for all competitors prior to cross-country - just stop by the Flair booth to have it applied. These Strips have helped equine athletes for over a decade. FLAIR® Strips provide support and protection to a sport-horse’s respiratory system by reducing air resistance. The drug-free Strips help prevent fatigue related injuries, help protect the lungs from exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), and promote the best athletic performance.
The top six in every division will also take home Flair strips in their prize packages.
