“Black Petticoat is honored to be a part of the 2019 AEC. A lifelong eventer and owner of Black Petticoat, [I am] thrilled to be able to be a sponsor of a sport so close to [my] heart. [I] started competing when the USEA was the USCTA, and while the format may have changed, [my] love of the sport of eventing never will. Good luck to all of the 2019 competitors!” said Lauren Dunlap, owner of Black Petticoat.

Black Petticoat is a forward-thinking fashion and equestrian clothing shop. Owner Lauren Dunlap and her mother, Rebecca Dunlap, have hand-selected each and every piece in their shop. Together they have curated a shop that includes timeless classic fashion pieces. They also offer stunning shoes and boots, unique jewelry, and equestrian clothing that can go from the streets to the stables to the show ring.

“We are thrilled to have this new partnership with Black Petticoat,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “They are experts in the equine clothing industry and their handpicked products are great for any eventer. We are very thankful for their support of the 2019 AEC.”

Make sure to stop by their booth at the Kentucky Horse Park during the 2019 AEC. “Some of the brands we carry are Asmar Equestrian and the boutique lines Indigenous Designs, Liebeskind Berlin, Zeyzani, and much more. We will be featuring incredible sales during the 2019 AEC!” said Dunlap.

Horses don’t come out and say, ‘Let’s make Mom’s (or Dad’s) life miserable today by going as poorly as possible - most prefer to do the right thing, as long as they know what that is.
