USEA Renew Partnership with Longtime Supporter D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce the renewed partnership with longtime partner, D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis. As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis will award the Junior Training Rider Champion and Preliminary Young Rider Champion custom-made Stackhouse saddles. This year’s AEC will be held on August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis will also join as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention and Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA Classic Series Training Level Three-Day Series. As a Bronze Level Sponsor, D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis will generously provide one custom made Stackhouse saddle to the winner of the 2019 Training Level Three-Day Program raffles. Raffle entries will be comprised of the winners of each of the annual Training Level Three-Day Events. This year’s USEA Annual Meeting & Convention will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on December 11-15, 2019.

Each Stackhouse saddle is individually created to fit both horse and rider with all the leather being cut by hand, which allows for the flaps to be tailored to the individual. Quality, comfort, fit and many other things are key to constructing a saddle with perfect balance and one perfectly suited for its purpose. The Stackhouse range includes dressage, eventing, and jumping saddles – all made from the very best full-grain leathers.

“We are extremely grateful for our partnership with Stackhouse & Ellis,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “A Stackhouse saddle is truly a work of art. David Stackhouse and Lesley Ellis are masterful craftspeople that work diligently to create the perfect custom saddle for both horse and rider. We deeply value our relationship with D.G. Stackhouse & Ellis and U.S. Eventing is lucky to have their continued support.”

My Valentine Steals Hearts as the 2021 Pony of the Year

Sidnee Milner and My Valentine did not become partners out of sheer coincidence. The pony and rider combination that took home the 2021 SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year award were a product of the thoughtfulness and generosity of family friend and trainer Tawn Edwards. Milner was, at the time, a young and inexperienced child rider looking for a partner to teach her the ropes of eventing; My Valentine was a well-seasoned eventing pony who knew the job of advancing young riders well and was looking for her next partner. Over their three-year relationship, the duo have accumulated various ribbons and accolades together with 2021 being the most impressive of their seasons thus far.
