It's been a strange spring season to say the least, but with competitions resuming all around the country, it's time to begin thinking about the future again! The 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) are little more than two months away and are taking place again this year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, August 25 – August 30. The AEC is a bucket list item for many eventers, so why not do something to commemorate the experience?
The USEA is now accepting submissions for the 2020 USEA AEC Event Program. Event programs are distributed to each AEC competitor, many of whom keep the program as a souvenir of their achievement, and placing an advertisement in the AEC program is a great way to celebrate the accomplishments of fellow eventer or family member!
For professionals with boarding, training, and coaching businesses, this is also an excellent opportunity to advertise to a wide demographic of eventers, as riders will travel from all across the country to compete at the AEC. Or perhaps you are coming to AEC to compete this year and have a business providing goods or services, equestrian-related or otherwise? Take advantage of this opportunity to advertise your business to your fellow eventers!
Advertising contracts will be accepted through Monday, July 20 with creative due on Wednesday, July 29. Click here to download and fill out the program advertising contract or contact Senior Director of Advertising Nancy Knight at (703) 669-9997 or [email protected] for additional information.
US Equestrian is pleased to announce the addition of two new 2021 dates for the Adequan®/USEF Eventing Youth Team Challenge (YTC):
"Too plain" is not a description that fits today's wire-to-wire winner of the Twin Rivers Spring International's inaugural CCI4*-L. But that's what Amber Levine heard five years ago after importing the now 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Classe VDL x Walta) as a sales prospect. So, she kept him. His long-delayed debut at the CCI4*-L level proved the wisdom of that decision.
This year’s pre-Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event USEA Official Podcast isn’t a traditional preview show, but rather Host Nicole Brown and the team of Max Corcoran, Rob Burk, and Diarm Byrne are discussing their favorite Kentucky memories as everyone gets giddy for the 2021 event!
At the second-to-last of 40 efforts, "I thought, 'This is actually happening,'" said Amber Levine of a faultless finish with Cellar Farm's Cinzano today to stay on their 31.5 lead going into show jumping tomorrow morning in the Twin Rivers Spring International CCI4*-L. The Jeffs Hot Tub Waves complex at 19 a/b was the awkward exception to a Hugh Lochore-designed course that otherwise "rode great" for the 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Classe VDL x Walta) in his long-delayed debut at the level. An entirely new portion of the course around the racetrack featured a series of bright-white painted obstacles, but nothing distracted Cinzano's "tunnel vision for those flags." Levine expects a similar game attitude tomorrow and has a rail to spare.
