The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is happy to announce the return of FLAIR as a Bronze Level sponsor of the 2017 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena. FLAIR will also provide FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips in competitors’ prize bags at AEC.
"Flair, LLC, maker of FLAIR® Equine Nasal Strips, is pleased to be a continuing sponsor of the American Eventing Championships,” said FLAIR President Jim Chiapetta. “We are honored to be a part of supporting the end of year championships that showcase the hard work and dedication of the trainers, riders and their horses and their commitments to one another and to the sport of eventing.”
FLAIR Strips provide drug-free support and protection to the respiratory system of the hard-working equine athlete. FLAIR Strips are proven to: reduce airway resistance, reduce lung stress and bleeding, reduce fatigue, and shorten post-exercise recovery time. FLAIR Strips provide benefits for all horses, including both intensively-trained horses and those that exert themselves during occasional weekend competitions or trail rides.
“We are happy to welcome back FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips as a sponsor of U.S. Eventing,“ said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “There are several pieces of vital equipment for every event horse. FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips have quickly become one of those items.”
