Boulder, Colorado— August 24, 2021 - Equine Network is thrilled to have the support of the United States Eventing Association (USEA) for the inaugural Horse Week event brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim.
USEA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization committed to providing eventing enthusiasts with a competitive level suited to their individual skills. By assisting and educating competitors, event organizers, and officials as well as maintaining responsible safety standards and registering qualified competitions and clinics, the USEA offers strong and continuous training opportunities for an ever-expanding field of world-class eventing competitors. Just as importantly, the USEA provides a means for all riders, regardless of age or ability, to experience the thrill of eventing.
Just as the USEA serves to unify the eventing community, Horse Week is connecting people and businesses within the equine industry. This fall, the inaugural Horse Week– an equine-centric digital festival unlike any other– will debut on horseweek.tv. With help from title sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim, riders and horse lovers of every level and discipline will enjoy high-quality educational and inspiring content.
This week-long viewing experience will include profiles of incredible equine athletes, equine storytelling that celebrates the horse-human bond, and heartwarming tales of horse heroics. Riders will get valuable takeaways and advice from world-class trainers.
“We have pulled Horse Week together to celebrate the horse across the entire industry in this new, exciting and innovative way,” said Melissa Kitchen, Vice President of Marketing Services at the Equine Network. “Having the support of well-known associations like the USEA helps us to further unify and connect the horse community through Horse Week.”
