Calling all eventers! We need you to take this important survey. The USEA is excited to announce a new survey study being conducted by a team of equine veterinarians and nutritionists investigating how competition level, training intensity, and management practices impact the gastrointestinal health of event horses. All eventers 18 years of age or older can take the survey for each of their event horses. Surveys are completely anonymous and will take about 10-15 minutes to complete. To thank you for your time, each eventer who completes a survey will be provided a 20% discount coupon for an online purchase to SmartPak™. The survey is open from Monday, September 18, 2017 to Friday, November 10, 2017.
