The USEA in Partnership with the Retired Racehorse Project

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the renewed partnership with the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) for 2020. The RRP will join as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds on August 25-30 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. In return, the USEA will join the RRP as a Black Type Sponsor for the 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover on October 7-10 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“The RRP is proud to partner with the USEA to support Thoroughbreds transitioning to competitive careers after racing. The athleticism and versatility of the Thoroughbred makes them well-suited for eventing and we’ve seen many horses rise to the upper levels of the sport after concluding their careers on the track. Eventing is one of the most popular disciplines offered at the Thoroughbred Makeover each year, and its multi-discipline aspect lends itself well to putting a solid foundation of training on a Thoroughbred after racing. We’re excited to work with the eventing community to introduce more equestrians to this unique challenge,” said Jen Roytz, RRP’s Executive Director.

Founded in 2010, the RRP works to facilitate the placement of Thoroughbred ex-racehorses in second careers by increasing demand for them in the marketplace and inspiring equestrians to provide the training that secures their futures. RRP offers online directories, educational resources, and publishes Off-Track Thoroughbred Magazine.

“It’s always very special to partner with an organization like the RRP that share similar values as the USEA. The RRP puts horse welfare at the utmost importance and we are proud to have them as a partner,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk.
