“Point Two USA is proud to be sponsoring the USEA going into its 10th year anniversary,” said Lee Middleton, CEO of Point Two USA, LLC. “Point Two is the only manufacturer of air vests in the USA giving you the best possible service. Point Two has supplied more safety vests to Olympic riders in the last two Olympics than any other company in the world to make sure you're riding in the safest and most reliable air vest.”
Point Two has always been the innovator in the equestrian market and they continue to provide the best product and service in the industry. The vests are available in a wide range of sizes and colors and are re-usable, serviceable and made from tough, wipe-clean fabric. Point Two Air Bag Systems come with a lifetime warranty.
“At the USEA we take the safety of our riders very seriously. Having a partner like Point Two Air Vests, who continue to support eventing and more specifically the AEC is important to us. A majority of this sponsorship is made up of air vests that will be awarded to the competitors at the AEC and we thank Point Two sincerely for their commitment to the safety of our members,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk.

We all work hard to get our horses shiny and clean for competition day, but it can sometimes take a bit of extra elbow grease to get those grey or white horses looking their best.

This is it! The weekend we've all been waiting for is finally here - the return to competition has arrived! After nearly three months of suspended competitions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the country and the world, riders are shining up their boots and preparing to trot down the centerline.
