USEA to Continue Partnership with Dubarry for the 2019 AEC

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the continued partnership with Dubarry of Ireland. As a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) Dubarry of Ireland will award two pairs of Dubarry boots for AEC prizes. This year’s AEC will be held August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

“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.

Considerations for Building Cross-Country Jumps at Home

If your farm has the space to set up a cross-country schooling course, it can be to your advantage to have cross-country jumps available for schooling purposes. Safety should be the number one priority when designing and building cross-country jumps, and an expert should be consulted whenever possible.
