Flair to Continue Partnership with USEA

By Rebecca Lertora - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to continue their partnership with Flair, LLC, maker of FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips. For 2019, Flair, LLC has increased their support of USEA programs by signing on as a Bronze Level sponsor of the USEA Classic Series and Contributing Level sponsor of both the 2019 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships and 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships.

“Flair is proud to be a continuing sponsor of the USEA. The role that USEA plays to build a solid foundation for amateur and professional riders is a key to developing the sport,” said Flair CEO and President Jim Chiapetta DVM JD. “This year, we look forward to partnering with USEA, specifically on educational efforts and respiratory health. It’s a well-known saying: 'No foot, no horse.' However, the reality is if the horse’s lungs aren’t working their best, all the feet in the world won’t help.”

FLAIR Nasal Strips are self-adhesive strips that promote optimum respiratory health of equine athletes at all levels by reducing airway resistance and providing improved airflow when your horse needs oxygen most. Since their introduction at the 1999 Breeder’s Cup races and the 2000 Olympics, FLAIR Strips have been regularly used for training and competition by world-class professional horsemen as well as amateur owners around the world.

“We are extremely thankful to our partners at Flair, LLC for their continued support,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “We stand by their products and they stand with the sport of eventing. FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips help equine breathe easier, reduce fatigue, conserve energy, and recover faster, all of which is incredibly important for the endurance phase of eventing.”

Cooley Master Class Can’t be Caught on Cross-Country at Maryland 5 Star

The forecasted downpours held off until the last horse and rider crossed the finish flags during the CCI5*-L cross-country at the Maryland 5 Star today, confirming the event’s decision to move up the start. The majority of riders had sunny skies and a cool breeze as backdrop to tackle Ian Stark’s five-star course across the sprawling grounds at Fair Hill in Elkton, Md. Before cross-country there was much chatter about the testing terrain, but 11 pairs managed to make the time despite the hills. At the end of the day, the top three riders held onto their podium positions going into show jumping tomorrow with overnight leader Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class (Ramiro B x The Swallow) impressing all who watched at each and every question.
