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.”
The USEA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization committed to providing eventing enthusiasts with a competitive level suited to their individual skills. By assisting and educating competitors, event organizers, and officials; maintaining responsible safety standards; and registering qualified competitions and clinics, the USEA offers a strong and continuous training opportunity for an ever-expanding field of world-class competitors. Just as importantly, the USEA provides a means for all riders, regardless of age or ability, to experience the thrill of eventing. To learn more, visit www.useventing.com.
Very few stallions compete at the top level in eventing - let alone at the Olympics. Windfall did just that, winning a team bronze medal under Darren Chiacchia for the USA in Athens in 2004. The fact that Windfall now has not one, but two, sons due themselves to compete for the same country as their sire, the USA, in Tokyo really does make him one in a million.
It's the moment we've all been waiting for, and it's almost here. The eventers are set to take the stage at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics THIS week, and we're here to help you catch all of the action.
