“Dubarry of Ireland is thrilled to return as a sponsor for this event, which has always been an excellent fit for our premium performance lifestyle brand,” said Danny Hulse.
Since 1937, the Irish-owned company has built an extraordinary reputation worldwide for excelling in the design and manufacture of footwear that marries tradition, technology, style, comfort, and function, placing Dubarry firmly at the very top of the marketplace as an innovator, a leader, and above all, a trusted and respected name. Dubarry’s signature boot is the Galway boot, the perfect all-purpose outdoor footwear for any weather. Its full GORE-TEX® lining provides complete waterproofing and the DryFast-DrySoft™ exterior leather offers protection, comfort, temperature control, durability, and style.
“I think U.S. Eventing is extremely lucky to have the support of this great company,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “Dubarry boots are dependable, comfortable, and they stay dry in all conditions. In addition to their boots, they also have an excellent variety of apparel offerings. Dubarry is second to none in standing by their products and eventers all over the world would agree. I love my Dubarry boots!”
Be sure to stop by the Dubarry booth at the Kentucky Horse Park during this year’s AEC to check out Dubarry boots and apparel. The USEA would like to thank the team at Dubarry for their continued support of our sport and look forward to working closely with them.

Being spontaneous has paid off for Kevin Keane and Sportsfield Candy. “I bought him on a Wednesday and showed him on a Thursday,” Keane recalls about his first event with his Irish Sport Horse gelding, then 9 years old, at Plantation Field Horse Trials (Unionville, Pennsylvania) in September 2016. “I owned him for part of a day, and the next morning I showed up at a CCI and jogged him up for a two-star, and we went clean and clean and clean.”
