Flair Renews Sponsorship for the 2012 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships

By USEA

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.

The AEC is a little over a month away, but there is a still a chance to sign on as a sponsor. Just contact Leslie Mintz.

Steve and Vicki Sukup Prove that You Always Win When You Bet on the Rider

What happens to a dream deferred? Steve and Vicki Sukup wouldn’t know, because frankly, that’s not their style. Steve is the president and CEO of family-owned Sukup Manufacturing, and also happens to be the co-owner of another Iowan delight—Mo Donegal, the Belmont Stakes winner who was dressed in white carnations earlier this month. Steve and his wife Vicki also have another equine connection who is pretty well known in the eventing world: Elisa Wallace.

Ben Noonan: Learning To Steer Through the Eventing School of Life

Anyone who has ever gone from driving a runaround to taking the wheel of a Ferrari can testify that that there are cars—and then, there are cars. Ben Noonan had a similar epiphany on horseback when he went from riding a trail horse over cross-country fences to riding an eventer. “I didn’t really understand why everyone liked eventing so much,” said Ben, now 18 and on the cusp of a professional career, “until I was riding an event horse.”
