The 2023 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds has been a roaring success, standing as the third largest eventing competition in North American history, behind the 2021 and 2019 AEC at the Kentucky Horse Park. 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 nearly $110,000 in prize money and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes and in-kind donations. Whether an AEC competitor placed fifth or won their division, they walked away with a plethora of prizes donated by the wonderful sponsors. The top three teams in all USEA Adult Team Championships divisions also walked away with prize money and prizes.

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. Nutrena is “The Official Feed of the USEA” and not only did they help fund the prize purses, but they sent the top three in every AEC and ATC division home with multiple bags of Nutrena Feed. “Nutrena has been with us since the very first year of the USEA, and the USEA and our members cannot thank them enough for their support,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk.

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 Advanced Final at the AEC, which offers a whopping $60,000 prize purse. The Champion walked away with $30,000, which makes this class one of the most highly sought after Championships in North America. “Year in and year out, Adequan steps up to support the sport of eventing in the U.S. and we are so grateful,” said Burk.

Bates, “The Official Saddle of the USEA” continued their support as a Platinum level sponsor of the AEC, providing around $20,000 worth of prizes to the top five in all AEC divisions, and the top three teams in all Adult Team Championship (ATC) divisions. “This partnership has been incredible both for the sport of eventing and the USEA members. We are so lucky to be able to partner with this top-of-the-line company,” noted Burk.

The USEA would like to thank the following Corporate sponsors, who also supported the AEC as Gold Level Sponsors: Capital Square, who serves as “The Official Real Estate Partner of the USEA,” Parker Equine Insurance, who serves as “The Official Equine Insurance of the USEA,” SmartPak, who serves as “The Official Supplement Feeding System of the USEA,” and Standlee, who serves as “The Official Forage of the USEA.” All of these corporate partners provided either significant prize purse funds, prizes, or both. Horse & Country is another Gold Level Sponsor to thank, who also provided the live stream of the AEC, and offers 15% off subscriptions to all USEA members.
