The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce the partnership with Park Equine Hospital for the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC). As a Silver Level Sponsor, Park Equine will provide their veterinary services during the week of AEC. This year’s AEC will be held on August 27-September 1, 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Park Equine Hospital was established in 2001 by Dr. John Park. The practice was built upon one simple principle: to provide the very best care to clients and their horses. At Park Equine Hospital, they take the health of a horse seriously, holding their level of care to the highest of medical and surgical standards. Park Equine Hospital provides comprehensive medical and surgical services, including daily health and reproduction services, lameness and sport horse medicine, elective and emergency medicine, surgery, and critical care.
“We are very grateful for this partnership with Park Equine Hospital,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “It’s great to know that these trusted veterinarians will be on grounds at the 2019 AEC. Thank you Park Equine for your services!”
