USEA Forges New Partnership with Equistro for 2019 AEC and ATC

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the new partnership with Equistro for the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) and 2019 USEA Adult Team Championships (ATC). Equistro will join as a Platinum Level Sponsor and Title Sponsor of the Modified/Training Championship at the 2019 AEC. As a Platinum Level Sponsor, Equistro will provide 330 buckets of Myo Power for top 15 riders in all AEC divisions and top 6 teams of ATC. This year’s AEC will be held on August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

Equistro was founded in Germany in 1986 and offers a range of equine horse supplements. In 2001, Equistro became a part of Vetoquinol, the international veterinary pharmaceutical laboratory. Their products are loved by some of the biggest names in three-day eventing including Ingrid Klimke, Andrew Hoy, and William Fox-Pitt.

Many of the ingredients contained within the Equistro products come from the leaves, fruits, or roots of different plants and spices from around the world. Equistro has adopted a bio-efficient approach which is the commitment to ensure that a horse receives needed nutrients in a form that is biologically in tune with a horse’s own physiology.

“We are very thankful to welcome this new partnership with Equistro,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Equistro products are loved by eventers from all over the world and we are thrilled to have their support for the 2019 AEC.”
