The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce their continued partnership with longtime sponsor Auburn Laboratories, Inc. As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), they will provide division winners with bottles of APF and packs of APF Pro cookies. Auburn Laboratories has also signed on as a Contributing Level Sponsor of the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. This year’s AEC will be held August 30-September 2, 2018 at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado and this year’s USEA Annual Meeting and Convention will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, December 5-9, 2018.
“Auburn Laboratories, Inc. is delighted to be partnering with USEA again this year to support the American Eventing Championships and the USEA Annual Convention,” said Joy Van Noy of Auburn Laboratories. “Our relationship with USEA, developed through the years, is very important to us and we are proud to be associated with this incredible organization as well as the remarkable competitors in all the levels of this sport across the country.”
Auburn Laboratories, Inc. creates APF (Advanced Protection Formula) and APF Pro, leading adaptogenic supplements for horses. APF supports your horse’s natural ability to “adapt” to stress, providing natural herbal extracts in a concentrated formula that is easily mixed into daily feed. Created by an equine veterinarian, Auburn Laboratories, Inc.’s products have become the first choice for the world’s top riders and trainers.
“Auburn Laboratories Inc. is a wonderful company that has consistently shown its commitment to the sport of eventing and the welfare of our horses,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The APF products are well regarded and popular with our members. Those competing at the AEC this year can expect to see some of their amazing products included in the prize bags. I ask our members to extend your thanks to company founders Dr. Mike Van Noy and Joy Van Noy for their support of U.S. Eventing!”
The USEA would like to thank Auburn Laboratories for their generous support of our sport and invite you to visit them at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention Trade Fair.

The CCI4*-S had an exciting shake-up of the top placings to finish out the International divisions at the Twin Rivers Fall International. It was Tamie Smith and Passepartout, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding (Pasco x Preschel) owned by Tamie's daughter Kaylawna Smith-Cook, who came out on top with the fastest cross-country time of the group. Ruth Bley’s 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding Danito (Dancier x Wie Musik) took second. Erin Kellerhouse and her own Woodford Reserve rounded out the top three.
Knowing what sort of support your horse needs can be tough, but it can also make a big difference. There’s a lot of confusion between your horse’s foregut health and hindgut health. After all, the process of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients is all technically “digestion,” so isn’t it all the same? Not quite. The organs in the foregut and hindgut have different functions, and each area has unique health concerns.
This year, the Area VI Championships took place on a sweltering weekend in Ramona, California at the Copper Meadows Horse Trials.
