By Kate Lokey - USEA Staff

https://www.lexmark.com/en_us/...The 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds has broken all the records, now standing as the largest eventing competition in North American history. The AEC at the Kentucky Horse Park garnered nearly 1,200 entries, with just under 1,000 starters and none of it would have been possible without the outstanding organization from Equestrian Events, Inc. and Mary Fike, and also thanks to 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 6th 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.

The USEA would also like to thank Adequan, who has been a long-time partner serving as the Title Sponsor of the Advanced division. The USEA and Adequan were able to offer the elite $60,000 Adequan USEA Advanced Final at the AEC this year, sending the winner home with a whopping $30,000 personalized check. Adequan is the “Official Joint Therapy Treatment of the USEA.”

Bates Saddles, the “Official Saddle of the USEA” has built an exciting partnership and stands as Platinum level sponsor of the AEC, as well as Title sponsor of the Preliminary divisions. Bates supports the USEA with $17,000 worth of prizes for winners through sixth place in every division.

Vetoquinol returned after forging a partnership with the AEC in 2019, and returned as a Platinum sponsor this year, and the title sponsor of the Modified division. They provided $40,000 in prizes, gifting a tub of Equistro Flexadin to the top 10 in every AEC division, as well as the top teams in the Adult Team Championships (ATC).

The USEA would also like to thank the Gold Level Sponsors: Parker Equine Insurance, ShowConnect, Smartpak, Standlee Hay.

A Day in the Life with USEA Intercollegiate Member Hannah Warner

Hannah Warner wears many hats: student at the University of Kentucky, UK Eventing Team President, competitor, and head groom for Alexa Ehlers. Fitting in all of her roles and responsibilities into her day-to-day life can be a challenge, but it is a challenge that Warner finds rewarding. The college senior is working towards a business degree through UK's online business program, so Warner is able to get creative with her schedule to pursue all of her academic and eventing related goals.
