This year’s Annual Meeting & Convention will take place at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts on December 12-15, 2019.

“As a longtime eventer, mother of an upper level eventer, and tack store owner, I am pleased to sponsor the United States Eventing Association. It is near and dear to our hearts,” said Diane Snow of Gallops Saddlery.

Gallops Saddlery first opened in 1992 in Tualatin, Oregon. Five years later, they expanded and moved down the road to their current location. Patty Cameron joined founding partner Diane Snow in 2001, and the pair has assembled a team of horse-loving employees focused on making customers and horses happy.

Headquartered in Oregon, Gallops Saddlery continues to be a staple for eventers in the Northwest region of the U.S. Gallops Saddlery provides apparel, horse tack, safety gear, horse clothing, horse care products, veterinary supplies, and fine gifts that are suitable for all equestrians.

“We are thrilled to continue the partnership with Gallops Saddlery for the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “It’s always a pleasure working with founder Diane Snow and her team of professionals. U.S. Eventing is lucky to have their continuous support – thank you, Gallops Saddlery!”
