The United States Eventing Association, Inc. (USEA) is delighted to announce the renewed partnership with SmartPak as the “Official Feeding Supplement of the USEA” for 2023. SmartPak will also continue their support of various USEA programs as a “Gold Sponsor of the USEA American Eventing Championships,” “Contributing Sponsor of the Adult Team Championships at the AEC,” “Bronze Sponsor of the Classic Series” and “Contributing Sponsor of the Young Event Horse Series.” The “SmartPak USEA Stallion of the Year” and “SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year” leaderboards will also allow the company to assist in recognizing the top placing stallion and pony of the Association at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention in St. Louis, Missouri this December 6-10.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with USEA," said Amanda Bodkin, Marketing Manager - Partnerships and Suppliers for SmartPak. "Through being the official supplement feeding system, we will continue to support the members and their horses as they strive to achieve their goals."
Since 1999, SmartPak has made it their mission to make the world a better place by using their smarts to power heathy horses and happy riders. The patented SmartPakTM supplement feeding system, the company’s premier product, is the brainchild of founder Becky Minard, who noticed a gap in the industry when it came to the proper feeding of daily supplements through an experience with her horse, Wesley. The SmartPakTM supplement feeding system allows horse owners to create customized, pre-measured supplement packages that can be safely and easily administered by anyone caring for the horse. The company’s team of Horse Health Experts are also available to assist in creating the perfect SmartPak for your horse’s needs. Along with this revolutionary product, SmartPak also offers a wide variety of horse health products, equipment and clothing for the rider, and equine pharmacy items through their catalog and website. SmartPak is your one-stop shop for all things equine!
“The USEA is proud to continue our partnership with SmartPak in 2023,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “SmartPak’s unwavering commitment to supporting the health of our horses through their innovative products is admirable. The SmartPakTM supplement feeding system is truly one of a kind, and eventers around the country trust it to ensure their horses are at the top of their game. We look forward to another great year working with this top-notch company and thank them for their support of the USEA.”

Hosting the Annual Meeting of Members each December has been a requirement set forth by the United States Eventing Association (USEA) by-laws (then the United States Combined Training Association) since 1959. This year, USEA members are gathering in St. Louis, Missouri, for the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention from Dec. 7 - Dec. 10 for four jam-packed days of educational seminars and open forums full of conversation surrounding our sport. Lunch on Friday, however, served as an opportunity for attendees to gather together for the USEA Meeting of Members once again.
