The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the partnership with Arnall’s Naturals for the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC). As a Bronze Level Sponsor, Arnall’s Naturals will provide 22 kilo starter kits for AEC prizes. This year’s AEC will be held on August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Arnall’s Naturals was founded by John Arnall over fifty years ago in the Outback of Australia. John Arnall, a born and raised horseman, was in his early twenties working for a well-known racehorse trainer. Population density in the Outback was low, thus veterinary service to and from stations for equine care was difficult. Working with experts in the field, John began using natural, plant-based herbs to assist horses when vet care was not an option.
Arnall's Naturals treats all animals as if they were part of the family. They offer all-natural, plant-based equine and canine supplements. To date, Arnall’s Naturals is sold in both the United States and Canada with retailers and dealers added regularly. Their products include Mare Care, Signature Silver: For Mature Horses, Total Plus: For the Active Horse, Total: Comprehensive Health & Wellness, and Total Canine.
“We are very excited to welcome this new partnership with Arnall’s Naturals,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Like the USEA, this company is dedicated to the health and wellness of our beloved horses.”

On Monday, March 8 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, USEF will host a member webinar providing updates on the impacts of the case of EHV-1 (neurological) reported in Ocala, Florida. This case is similar in nature, but unrelated to the neurological strain of EHV-1 impacting Valencia (ESP) and other European countries.
As competitors rise through the levels, they often see the costs associated with competition rise and, unfortunately for most organizers, this can’t be avoided. With fewer competitors requiring more jumps, officials, footing management, etc., the expenses for running higher levels – especially FEI – are greater than lower levels.
Our sport is going to present you with many amazing opportunities, and some equally amazing challenges. While you’re sure to enjoy the opportunities, it sometimes takes a little more effort to enjoy the challenges. Contrary to the common misconception (from non-equestrians) that our sport is easy, it’s actually one of the hardest and most demanding sports of all!
