There are so many things to love about the Defender Kentucky Three-Day Event and the opportunity to peruse the booths of so many amazing vendors is definitely one of them! Don’t forget to stop by the USEA booth, located just behind the Rolex Stadium next to the large Defender Kentucky Three-Day Event booth, to stock up on all of your favorite USEA apparel.

As we all know, the weather in the Bluegrass can be finicky. We have USEA logowear from both Kerrits and Ariat. Grab a quilted vest or rain coat to keep you warm and dry while you watch your favorite riders conquer the cross-country course.

Grab the brand new USEA t-shirt (right), a USEA hat, or a men's long sleeve base layer from ROMFH (left).

Returning in 2024 are our best selling soft shell Ariat jackets. In red and blue softshell fabric, they have the USEA logo on the front and EVENTING USA embroidered across the back—a great way to rep the sport you love! We also have men’s rain jackets in the same colors for those unpredictable Kentucky days.

For both men and women, we are bringing back our classic Ariat polo shirts! In both gray and navy, these are great for layering and look sharp under a vest or jacket or by themselves.

A Kerrits vest over the new USEA t-shirt makes a great combo!

We will also have ample stock of classic USEA t-shirts and hats that come in an array of colors and sizes for every eventing fan! Stop by the booth and get one to wear and another to take home.

The USEA booth will have numerous bumper stickers, decals, lanyards, keychains, and magnets. Let the world know you're an event rider with these items!

Pick up an exclusive Mai Baum hat from Strides For Equality Equestrians.

In addition, the USEA is proud to be the official retailer for the Mai Baum hats that will benefit the Strides for Equality Equestrian (SEE) Mai Baum Scholarship Grant through the USEA Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of these hats will go directly to SEE to support their offering of hands-on experiential scholarships for riders who are part of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community.

All items will be exclusively sold in the tent during the competition. Watching the livestream from home? Don't worry, all items will then be made available for purchase online after the event at shopusea.com.
