"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.

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.”

Show jumping: there is so much more to it than just setting out a set number of jumps in a ring. Professional course designers Marc Donovan and Chris Barnard broke down the fine details that come with show jumping course design during the Show Jumping Building Seminar which kicked off the 2022 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention on Wednesday, December 7th in Savannah, Georgia. With an in-classroom session discussing rules, regulations, theory, and more, followed by a practical hands-on course building session held at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Ronald C. Waranch Equestrian Center where participants were able to put all of the morning’s education to work, this year’s Show Jumping Course Building Seminar was full of useful information for both eventing lovers and course design hopefuls alike.
During the 2022 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, there will be two meetings of the USEA Board of Governors (BOG), one on Thursday, December 8th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and one on Sunday, December 11th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The USEA is run by a BOG of around twenty individuals. These individuals discuss and vote on important matters related to the organization and its members. BOG members come from all over our ten USEA areas and come from various backgrounds from grooms, to professional riders, to amateurs, to course designers, and much more. Each BOG member serves a three-year term.
