USEA Welcomes New Partnership with Farm House Tack

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the new partnership with Farm House Tack. Farm House Tack will be coming on as a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC). This year’s AEC will be held August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

More than 30 years after The Farm House opened its doors, the Lehner family still owns the business and manages day-to-day operations. They also spend a lot of time “in the field” listening to what customers want and need. They are focused on providing excellent quality products at affordable prices, from hand-picked fabrics and liners for show coats to state-of-the art upgrades to tack and equipment.

Farm House Tack carries products from well-known equestrian brands including Nunn Finer, Ariat, Bates Saddles, Charles Owen Helmets, Ovation, and FITS. They offer riding apparel for both men and women, new and used saddles, grooming supplies, equestrian gifts, and much more.

“We are very thankful for the support of Farm House Tack,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “This family-owned business is a wonderful company that offers a wide variety of products for eventers. I urge everyone to check out their booth during the 2019 AEC!”

Now on Course: Heartbeats and Hoofbeats

My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.
