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.

“Schooling shows are about learning, not about being intimidated,” says Miranda Kettlewell, VP of Dressage for Commonwealth Dressage and Combined Training Association (CDCTA).
For horses and riders, schooling shows are a great way to practice without the added stress and expense of a recognized or sanctioned competition. Venues and clubs can offer schooling shows as a way to open the door to their communities, increase their revenue or membership, and partner with local businesses.
US Equestrian has announced a horse substitution for the U.S. Eventing Olympic Team ahead of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The Luke Syndicate's Luke 140, the selected mount for Boyd Martin (Cochranville, Pa.), will be replaced by Martin’s first direct reserve, Tsetserleg, a 14-year-old Trakehner gelding owned by Christine Turner, Thomas Turner, and Tommie Turner. Luke 140 sustained a minor injury during his training preparation and has been withdrawn from consideration for the team but is expected to make a full recovery.
