Standlee’s long-standing passion and commitment to producing and manufacturing the highest quality, natural forage products available, positions the company as the industry leader,” said Jessica Wright, Standlee Marketing Program Manager.
For over 30 years, Standlee has produced the highest quality forage products available. Standlee Premium Western Forage® products are available in alfalfa, alfalfa blends, orchard grass, and timothy grass and come in different formats including bales (compressed bales, compressed and shrink-wrapped Grab & Go® bales), cubes, pellets, chopped, shreds and treats.
“The USEA is incredibly lucky to have the partnership of Standlee Premium Western Forage,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Consistent quality is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Standlee products. They understand that forage is the most important part of a horse’s diet. Some horse owners forget that fact, but eventers that understand good horsemanship feed Standlee to ensure that their horses are receiving proper nutrition for whatever their pursuits.”

Tamie Smith’s year has been nothing short of action-packed as she packed up all 25 of her competition horses and made her way to the East Coast for the first part of the year before hopping on a jet to Tokyo where she served as the U.S. team reserve for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She then stayed overseas and competed abroad for a little while before returning home to the West Coast. While this year has been full of opportunities to show, her aspirations are bigger than just competition. The 2021 Bates USEA Lady Rider of the Year has been full steam ahead chasing goals in both her riding career as well as in her impact on the sport’s future.
