The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is proud to announce the continued partnership with LandSafe Equestrian for the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). LandSafe will join the USEA as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the AEC and the Presenting Sponsor of the 2021 AEC Event College. As a Bronze Sponsor, LandSafe will generously provide gift certificates for a LandSafe clinic to every division winner. As the presenting sponsor of the AEC Event College, LandSafe will also offer educational seminars on a variety of topics in their education tent during the 2021 AEC. This year’s AEC will be held on August 31 - September 5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Competitors, parents of competitors, and everyone attending the AEC: LandSafe Equestrian is excited to partner with the USEA Event College again this year! This is the second year we will be offering the education tent, which will have free lectures from top professionals, including discussions about horsemanship education which coincides with [the USEA] President Max Corcoran's initiative, as well as our personal goal of reaching parents of young riders to discuss safety. Please stop by and let us help you and your riders find a safe path to eventing success! Charles Owen, Airowear, Tech Stirrups, and other products will [also] be offered in our tent throughout the show. Good luck to all competitors!” said Danny and Keli Warrington of LandSafe
LandSafe reduces rider risk through an equestrian-specific, fit-for-purpose fall safety training program. LandSafe is owned by Danny Warrington, a former steeplechase jockey turned international Advanced eventer, and Keli Warrington, a former top-level gymnast, and event rider. Their goal is to bring riders as much knowledge in self-preservation as possible in a safe and controlled environment.
LandSafe has a progression-focused approach, where each level builds on the competencies learned from the previous level. Each level of the program includes multiple days of targeted, hands-on learning exercises using proprietary simulation technology. This approach provides riders with a real-life experience to improve their reaction time via repetitive exercises. Participants leave understanding the core objectives and having practiced their learned capabilities relative to that level. The LandSafe system caters to athletes of all capabilities and disciplines.
“We are honored to continue the partnership with LandSafe,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The mission of LandSafe is something all eventers should be thankful for as they have an unparalleled focus on safety in our sport. The LandSafe system educates riders in a fun and interactive way. Please visit their tent during the 2021 AEC and thank them for everything they have done for the sport of eventing.”
