The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce their new partnership with Nelson Manufacturing Company. As a Contributing Level Sponsor for this year’s USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), Nelson Manufacturing is generously awarding a watering system as a prize for the 2017 AEC. The AEC will be held August 30- September 3, 2017 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina.
“We at Nelson Manufacturing are excited to be partnering with the USEA for the American Eventing Championships,” said Tom Dowd of Nelson Manufacturing. “We are proud to be part of this great show and look forward to seeing you in August.”
Nelson Manufacturing Company specializes in the design and manufacturing of all-season automatic livestock waterers, automatic horse waterers and water bucket heaters. The watering systems are made in the USA in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and are available for stalls and pastures. The all-season, automatic watering system features stainless steel design, an easy-to-clean removable drinking bowl and optional water consumption monitors.
“We are excited to have Nelson Manufacturing Company join us as a new sponsor of the Association and specifically the American Eventing Championships,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The quality of their products is perfectly in line with the standards of the USEA and our members. We encourage our members to consider Nelson first when looking for automatic feeding and watering systems.”

The USEA is very sad to hear the news of the passing of From, the 28-year-old Russian Thoroughbred gelding (Mif x Floema), owned by Charlotte Harris and ridden by Stephen Bradley.
In less than a year the USEA Foundation, USEA, and a group of passionate stakeholders have managed to raise $500,000 to build frangible fences thanks to donations from USEA members and eventing enthusiasts around the country. This money has gone directly to 116 different USEA recognized events with 151 frangible tables, 53 oxers, and 34 gate/wall fences already out on course – all built with grants distributed by the USEA Foundation.

The USEA has launched a new system for tabulating points for the year-end leaderboards which will begin with the 2021 competition season. Previously, leaderboard points were awarded based on placing and further determined by the number of starters in a division, often giving the focus to the quantity of rides a competitor could complete in a given competition season.
