The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce the renewed partnership with the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. This year’s AEC will take place on August 31 - September 5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Research is the fuel that drives equine clinical practice whether you are working with sport horses or pasture pets. Clinical practice in any discipline of equine performance is a matching game. The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is the leading funder of equine research worldwide. We are committed to supporting research that helps all horses of all breeds and disciplines, including sport horses, and that is why we are proud to partner with the USEA to sponsor the AEC,” said Dr. Larry R. Bramlage, a dedicated Grayson Board Member and practicing veterinarian at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital.
The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is a leading non-profit organization committed to the understanding and advancement of all horses. The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation has always been devoted to the progression of equine research. Since its foundation in 1940, Grayson-Jockey Club has helped advise various equine research specialties and protocols seen in our industry today. The Foundation has endorsed health recommendations for equine industry protocols, uncovered solutions to critical diseases, and found clues to numerous resolutions of equine health issues.
“We are very proud to partner with the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation for the 2021 AEC,” said the USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Similar to the core values of the USEA, the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation holds equine welfare at the utmost importance. The research this organization has supported truly benefits the health and well-being of our equine partners and helps us to better understand them.”
