By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce that The Chronicle of the Horse will join again this year as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC) and the 2020 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 one-year print subscriptions and embroidered show coolers. This year’s AEC and ATC will be held August 25-30, 2020 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“We at The Chronicle of the Horse salute adult amateurs for managing to balance work, family, and riding. We’ve been proud supporters of the USEA’s Adult Team Championships since their inception more than 20 years ago. Since the ATC have joined the USEA American Eventing Championships the joint competition represents a wonderful opportunity for the Chronicle to connect with eventers from across the country who are all working toward excellence,” 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.

The Chronicle of the Horse is one of the best equestrian publications in the world, and we are extremely grateful for their long-term dedication to the AEC and ATC. It is the core supporters of our sport like The Chronicle of the Horse that help keep eventing viable and we love their dedication to our adult amateur athletes,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk.

About the USEA Adult Team Championships

The USEA Adult Team Championships, which debuted in 2014, is the capstone event for the USEA Area Adult Team Challenges, providing adults the chance to compete as a team and represent their Area of the country in a friendly and fun environment. Historically, adult riders had three regional Team Challenges in which to compete with fellow adults in a team environment, with the locations changing each year. In 2013, the USEA Adult Rider Coordinators voted to move to support Adult Team Challenges taking place in all 10 Areas across the country, with the finale being the ATC at the USEA American Eventing Championships. Each Area can send up to eight teams from Beginner Novice through Preliminary level to the ATC. Adult Riders know how to have a good time, and there is no doubt that they bring an increased level of excitement and camaraderie to the AEC!
