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.”

James Alliston made out like a king earlier this summer at The Event at Rebecca Farm with wins in the CCI4*-L and CCI3*-L aboard Paper Jam and Nemesis respectively. We caught up with Alliston to chat about his horses, competing on the West Coast, his time in the States, and how it compares to competing in England.
Three clear show jumping rounds in the CCI4*-S at the Plantation Field International Three-Day Event have placed Allie Knowles in first, third, and sixth place with Ms. Poppins, Morswood, and Business Class all owned by Katherine O’Brien. Phillip Dutton and Quasi Cool, a 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Quo Vados I x B-Estelle) owned by Caroline Moran, kept their cool to put in a double clear round and move up to second from overnight third place.
It was a historic week for U.S. Eventing as American athletes achieved their best results ever in the CCIO4*-S at CHIO Aachen. The Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team of Will Coleman and Off The Record, Sydney Elliott and QC Diamantaire, Ariel Grald and Leamore Master Plan, and Tamie Smith and Mai Baum took second place in the FEI Eventing Nations Cup – the highest result by a U.S. team at the prestigious event.
Perhaps one of the best reasons to be a member of USEA is the opportunity to qualify for and participate in the USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. This year there was a record 1,178 entries and a waitlist of over 150. There were 1,009 pinnies handed out and 939 horses started the competition. All combined it made for the largest horse trials in USEA history. Competitions ran in all USEA divisions and additional prizes were given for teams, incentive programs, amateur, and young rider divisions.
