The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to welcome back longtime supporter Gallops Saddlery, headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, as a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2017 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. This year’s convention will take place at the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California, December 6-10, 2017.
"Gallops is a longtime supporter of eventing”, said Diane Snow of Gallops Saddlery. “Our mobile store sells at most of the Area VII events where we have a very devoted following. It makes sense to give back and to support the USEA."
Gallops Saddlery carries tack, clothing, veterinary, barn, and gift items for equestrians, with a focus on eventing, hunter/jumper, and dressage. Their mobile unit visits horse shows and events throughout the Northwest. Whether you’re looking for fun or functional, basic or blingy, Gallops has what you and your horse need.
“We are excited to see our partnership with Gallops Saddlery continue,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The founding partners of Gallops Saddlery, Diane Snow and Patty Cameron, are lifelong eventers themselves and know what our members are looking for. Not only that, but they constantly give back to the sport through volunteerism. We are lucky to have them as partners.”

This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
