The USEA's newly renovated online store www.shopusea.com just got a little better! ShopUSEA, which had been temporarily closed due to COVID-19, is now open for business once again. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a trying time for all, but ShopUSEA can bring a little bit of eventing spirit back into our lives.
The online store is now fully stocked with both new items and old favorites. With supplies that were set to be featured in the USEA merchandise booth at the 2020 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event before the event's cancellation, the USEA now has plenty of merchandise to go around. Fans and members can still get their shopping fix at ShopUSEA!
This summer, our partners at Ariat and Ovation have provided sun shirts to keep our community cool and sunburn free. Get yourself an Ariat sunstopper as well as an Ovation cool rider sun shirt for each day of the week. Our staff also particularly like the Ovation UV Sportflex shirt for keeping cool while riding in the sunshine.
The USEA is also featuring team apparel with the brand new USA Global Softshell, which is great for those cool mornings or late evenings at the barn. Members can also sport the patriotic Team Tri-Factor.
The USEA also has some new accessories that are great for birthday presents, Father’s Day gifts, or just for your own enjoyment. Check out the new USEA Tote styled in various colors, and the brand new featured USEA mug.

If a horse doesn’t have a proven eventing record, those interested in finding their next eventing partner must use other criteria to evaluate a horse’s potential in the sport. Understanding and appraising a horse’s conformation can be a way to look into a crystal ball for that horse’s future suitability for eventing.
