This year’s USEA Annual Meeting & Convention was a special week in Savannah, Georgia. It included several days of celebration and education, including the year-end annual awards ceremony, as well as the USEA’s Hall of Fame Gala. This week and weekend would not have been possible without the support of the many loyal partners of the USEA and the Convention.

The USEA would first like to thank its Corporate Level sponsors and partners, who dedicate their time and resources to the USEA programs, events, and membership year-round, helping the sport of eventing thrive in the United States. Special appreciation to Adequan “The Official Joint Therapy Treatment of the USEA,” Bates “The Official Saddle of the USEA,” Nutrena “The Official Feed of the USEA,” Standlee “The Official Forage of the USEA,” SmartPak “The Official Supplement Feeding System of the USEA,” Parker Equine Insurance “The Official Equine Insurance of the USEA,” Kerrits “The Official Competition and Training Apparel of the USEA,” Capital Square “The Official Real Estate Partner of the USEA,” and Mountain Horse “The Official Outerwear of the USEA.”

Nunn Finer returned as the Overall Leaderboard Sponsor, supporting and recognizing USEA members at all levels throughout the year. For the individual leaderboards, World Equestrian Brands sponsored the Rider of the Year, Bates Saddles sponsored Lady Rider of the Year and Mare of the Year, RevitaVet sponsored the Young Rider of the Year, Standlee sponsored the Horse of the Year, Capital Square sponsored the Adult Amateur of the Year, SmartPak sponsored the Stallion of the Year and Pony of the Year, and Sunsprite Warmbloods once again sponsored the Volunteer of the Year.

Rebecca Farm continued their support of the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention by graciously providing the coffee and continental breakfast for USEA members each morning. Their loyalty to the sport and communities around the United States have impacted countless individuals.

Gallops Saddlery also supported the USEA Convention this year as a contributing sponsor, and they have been a long-time supporter of the USEA and the sport of eventing.

Lastly, the USEA’s Area III stepped up to support the USEA Convention, and the USEA was thrilled to host the Convention in Savannah, Georgia this year. Thank you to everyone for their support, and thank you to everyone who attended the convention and this great week for the sport.
