We all come to a five-star for the competition first, but you can’t deny that the temptation of the available shopping runs a close second! This week while you are browsing the shops while onsite at the MARS Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill be sure to stop by the USEA booth (Hillside Booth 64-65 adjacent to the Main Arena near the Timber Field) so you can represent U.S. eventing while enjoying all that the long weekend at Fair Hill has to offer.
If you have been to the MARS Maryland 5 Star before, you know the likelihood of experiencing a range of climates while there is quite high. We have stocked up on all of the essentials to help get you through this weekend just in time for this week’s five-star.
An easy layering piece to add to your wardrobe is our Kerrits Lucky Bits Softshell Riding Jacket. This three-quarter length softshell features an elegant, feminine silhouette, tail splits and two-way zip for in-saddle performance, and a fleece interior to keep you warm on those chilly morning cross-country walks. Plus, it is wind and water resistant!
Or, if you find yourself more of a vest person, then you will love our new Kerrits Full Motion Quilted Vest. It is a softshell and quilted combination material that is perfect for layering up for those brisk afternoon hacks. Its micro-fleece interior wicks away moisture and keeps you warm, while its smooth exterior repels horsehair, hay, dirt, and all of the other goodies we are bound to pick up on our adventures at the barn.
We love the ROMFH Aachen Mock Zip Shirt which is made with a butter-soft micro poly one-sided fleece. It is another great layering staple that we think you will appreciate each morning while here onsite at Maryland until the sun pops out to warm things up.
If you love to snuggle up in a warm hoodie, don’t miss out on our USEA branded Kerrits Double Take Full Zip Fleece Hoodie. It has an extra tall collar that can help keep you cozy, two front hand-warmer pockets, and a bonus inner pocket perfect for your phone or your earbuds. Plus, it is super cozy!
And don’t forget that most of your body head escapes from your head! The Kerrits Mane Tame Knit Hat is a super cute way to keep warm in the chilliest part of the day with its fleece interior and cable-knit exterior.
Plus, we’ve got sunshirts, ballcaps, and so much more. So stop by, say hello, and grab your USEA merch today to help represent the sport that you love!
