The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce that The Chronicle of the Horse will return this year as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC) and the 2021 USEA Adult Team Championships (ATC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor, The Chronicle of the Horse will generously provide every AEC division winner with a one-year print subscription to their magazine. They will also provide ATC Champion teams with prize packs that include one-year print subscriptions and embroidered show coolers. This year’s AEC and ATC will be held August 31- September 5, 2021, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
"We at The Chronicle of the Horse understand the special challenge amateurs face of balancing horses with family, jobs, and the rest of life. We are proud to have partnered with the U.S. Eventing Association on the Adult Team Championships since the program’s inception more than 20 years ago, which has been a wonderful way for us to support amateur riders who represent the backbone of our sport. Since the ATCs have joined the American Eventing Championships, the joint competition has been a great opportunity for us to reach dedicated equestrians who strive toward excellence at all levels,” said Mollie Bailey of The Chronicle of the Horse.
The Chronicle of the Horse published its first edition in 1937 and remains the industry leader in providing news coverage of national and international sport horse competitions. This weekly publication provides thorough results, compelling features, and thought-provoking commentary, both in print and online. The Chronicle of the Horse acts as the heart and soul of the sport horse community and an information hub for those who desire to live the active equestrian lifestyle.
“As a sponsor of both the AEC and ATC, we sincerely appreciate The Chronicle of the Horse’s dedication to our adult amateur athletes,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The Chronicle of the Horse is one of the best equestrian publications in the U.S., and we are extremely thankful for their long-term support of the AEC and ATC.”

Will Coleman had a huge 2022 with his string of horses, including a team silver medal at the FEI World Eventing Championship in Italy on Off The Record and top four-star placings with Chin Tonic HS, but it was Dondante whose consistency paid off to earn the Standlee Premium Western Forage USEA Horse of the Year title.
Julie Murray has loved horses since she could breathe, so when her daughters showed an interest in Pony Club and then eventing, she was thrilled to go along for the ride.
Murray started volunteering at the Fallbrook Pony Club near her home in Fallbrook, California, serving as an intermediate district commissioner.
