The 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds has been a roaring success, and none of it would have been possible without the support of the many loyal sponsors. Thanks to their generous support, the USEA was able to provide AEC competitors with over $100,000 in prize money and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes and in-kind donations. Whether an AEC competitor placed sixth or won their division, they walked away with prize money and a plethora of prizes donated by the wonderful sponsors.

The USEA would like to especially thank AEC Presenting Sponsor, Nutrena Feeds, as they have been a long-time supporter of the AEC at both the Presenting and Title level in the past, and the USEA cherishes this partnership for all USEA members. “Since the very first AEC in 2004, Nutrena has partnered with the USEA as one of our corporate sponsors,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Having partnered with Nutrena for over 14 years, we are proud to call Nutrena the 'Official Feed of the USEA' today. We know that feeding Nutrena brings U.S. eventers peace of mind thanks to their incredibly high standards and their focus on optimum nutrition and peak performance.”

The USEA would also like to thank Adequan, who has been a long-time partner serving as the Official Joint Therapy Treatment of the USEA and the Title Sponsor of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series, which culminates with the Advanced level Gold Cup Final at the AEC. “Year in and year out Adequan steps up to support the sport of eventing in the U.S.,” said Burk. “We are very thankful to be partnered with the company that produces the only product approved by the FDA for the intramuscular treatment of non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic joint dysfunction and associated lameness of the carpal and hock joints in horses. Eventers care about the health and well-being of our equine partners which is why many of our top horses are active in the sport well into their later years.”

The VIP Volunteer: Jim Moyer

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
