There are a few things you shouldn’t forget when packing for the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event: your tickets, comfortable walking shoes, rain gear (just in case!), and your wallet! With one of the largest vendor fairs at any equine event in the country, there are ample shopping opportunities all across the Kentucky Horse Park this week—including the USEA booth! Located just behind the Rolex Stadium, you can easily pop in before you make your way to watch dressage or show jumping, or hit the booth on your way back up from the cross-country track.
One of the most exciting new additions to our apparel offerings this year are the new Ariat Eventing USA softshell jackets for both men and women! The women’s jacket sports team U.S.A. colors and features Ariat’s AriatTEK® fabric for wind and water resistance while still maintaining breathability. The men’s version comes in this striking charcoal color and, in addition to the zippered pockets, features a zippered chest pocket as well—perfect for stashing away that extra LRK3DE shopping money in!
As we all know, the weather in Kentucky can be a bit up and down in April, so if you find yourself needing to change up your wardrobe options this week, check out the selection of long and short-sleeve polos available at our booth.
Vests are a great option for a little extra layering without getting too warm, and this quilted vest by Kerrits is just as sharp as it is comfortable!
The Ariat men’s team logo quarter-zip sweatshirt is a great layering piece for the cooler days with its soft, brushed fleece interior.
And of course, our booth will be fully stocked with ball caps, stickers, lanyards, keychains, and other awesome USEA accessories to help you represent your U.S. eventing pride!
All items will be exclusively sold in the tent during the competition. Watching the livestream from home? Don't worry, all items will then be made available for purchase online after the event at shopusea.com.

The USEA would like to thank Mountain Horse, "The Official Outerwear of the USEA," and Kerrits, "The Official Competition and Training Apparel of the USEA" for stocking our USEA merchandise booth at LRK3DE.
Marley Bridges lived and breathed gymnastics. “I started at the age of 5,” said Bridges. “You always had to have the time and the mindset for gymnastics. You had to allow yourself to commit to it. You had to commit to working out four hours a day, five days a week, doing cardio every single day, train every single day. You had to stay committed to yourself, the team, and the sport.”
If you’re like most riders you’ve probably heard someone say something like, “Your last mistake is your best teacher,” or “if you’re doing everything right you’re doing something wrong because you’re in your comfort zone.” While I agree whole-heartedly with these sentiments, I actually prefer, “Equestrians don’t make mistakes. Mistakes make equestrians.” They make us bolder, braver, and brighter; but only when we develop a positive relationship with our mistakes and respond to them in productive ways.
