By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the new partnership with Saratoga Horseworks Ltd., the Official Horse Clothing of the USEA. Saratoga Horseworks will also join as a Silver Level Sponsor of the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC), a Contributing Sponsor of the Future Event Horse Program, a Contributing Sponsor of the Young Event Horse (YEH) Program, a Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, and a Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention.

Saratoga Horseworks apparel will be providing embroidered show coolers as prizes at the upcoming 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, which will take place on May 27-30 at the Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, Va. Saratoga Horseworks apparel will also be offered as prizes for the competitors at the AEC, the USEA YEH Championships, and the USEA FEH Championships.

"Saratoga Horseworks is proud to support the USEA in its mission to advance the sport of Eventing. As a USA-based manufacturer, we believe in the success of American horses and riders at all levels. We’re eager to assist USEA members in creating custom horse clothing that will keep their equine athletes comfortable and well dressed,” said Saratoga Horseworks President Michael Libertucci.

Founded in 1988, Saratoga Horseworks, Ltd. specializes in custom horse blankets, dog coats, and more. Based in New York, one of their first pivotal moments was introducing the very first turnout flysheet. The company made its mark again with the creation of the Saratoga Bandage, featuring a unique fabric that provides unsurpassed support to the lower limb.

With a staff featuring active equestrians, they design the product down to the tiniest details, such as the placement of leg straps, reinforcement of seams, and monogram size. All products offered by Saratoga Horseworks are made and manufactured in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to enter into this new partnership with Saratoga Horseworks,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “At the USEA, we carefully consider every company that we designate as officially endorsed by our Association. We believe that Saratoga Horseworks is a perfect fit for our members, and we are honored to have them as the Official Horse Clothing of the USEA.”

The USEA Lady Rider of 2021 is Leading the Charge in Elevating Eventing Competition on the West Coast

Tamie Smith’s year has been nothing short of action-packed as she packed up all 25 of her competition horses and made her way to the East Coast for the first part of the year before hopping on a jet to Tokyo where she served as the U.S. team reserve for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She then stayed overseas and competed abroad for a little while before returning home to the West Coast. While this year has been full of opportunities to show, her aspirations are bigger than just competition. The 2021 Bates USEA Lady Rider of the Year has been full steam ahead chasing goals in both her riding career as well as in her impact on the sport’s future.
