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 Event at Rebecca Farm Will Have a New Feel This Year

This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
