The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the continued support of Nunn Finer as a USEA sponsor. John Nunn, president and owner of Nunn Finer and Bit of Britain, has supported many USEA programs over the years with both companies. For 2019, The Overall Leaderboard Title Sponsorship will now be transferred from Bit of Britain to Nunn Finer, putting Nunn Finer as the new Title Sponsor of all the USEA overall leaderboards.
John Nunn’s parent company Bit of Britain will also continue to generously offer USEA members a 5% discount on all orders placed through the Bit of Britain website.
“Nunn Finer has been a longtime sponsor of USEA Programs and is excited to be the new Title Sponsor of the USEA Leaderboards for 2019,” stated John Nunn. “We have been dedicated to discovering and developing innovative products for the eventing community since 1993, so partnering with USEA is a natural fit. Good luck to all competitors and cheers to an exciting 2019 season.”
“When I was actively competing, I loved Nunn Finer products,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “I knew their products were always going to be top quality and designed by real eventers who understand what we need. Not to mention Nunn Finer president John Nunn who has personally contributed so much time, energy and money to our sport. There is no better choice than Nunn Finer in my book. Please show your support to Nunn Finer by purchasing your equipment from those who support our equine, events, and eventers!”

At the end of 2018 the United States Eventing Association (USEA) launched a new website and with this update came a new process for the USEA’s online competition calendar. This change was not a result of the new website, but because of the USEA Omnibus no longer being offered in a printed version.
US Equestrian (USEF) has released the selection procedures for the 2019 Pan American Games taking place August 1-4, 2019 in Lima, Peru. The United States did not secure the necessary Olympic qualifying placing at the FEI World Equestrian Games in 2018, so the 2019 Pan American Games are the U.S.’s next chance to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
