By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to welcome back longtime supporter World Equestrian Brands as the Title Sponsor of the USEA Rider of the Year Leaderboard and a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships.

This year’s USEA Rider of the Year will be honored in the 2020 USEA Year-End Awards Ceremony held virtually via Zoom Webinar on Friday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. EST. World Equestrian Brands will generously provide the winner with Equilibrium Impact Cross-Country boots and Amerigo safety stirrups. This year is historic in that it’s the first time a female has won the Rider of the Year title since 1981.

As a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, World Equestrian Brands will also provide prizes to the top three winning teams. The 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships will take place on May 27-30, 2021 at the Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, Virginia.

“World Equestrian Brands is very pleased to carry on in 2021 as Title Sponsor of the USEA Rider of the Year award, as well as Contributing Sponsor of the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. It is wonderful seeing riders come along in their training as young riders, many turning into young professionals, and then on up the ranks they go! We appreciate their steadfastness, diligence, and dedication to their horses, and the sport of eventing. We wish everyone all the best for 2021,” said Robin Moore of World Equestrian Brands.

The mission at World Equestrian Brands is to provide world class, high performance equestrian products with hassle-free, personalized service backed by the experience of a team of riders. They use riders’ feedback and experienced customer service representatives to ensure that customers’ shopping experiences are as high quality as the products they receive.

“World Equestrian Brands has supported this sport for many years, and we are very grateful for their continued partnership,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “It’s always a pleasure working with Robin Moore and her team of professionals, and the products her company offers are loved by eventers nationwide. I recommend every eventer to check out this company as they have something for everyone.”

About the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was established in 2014 to provide a framework within which eventing teams and individual competitors could flourish at universities and colleges across the country. The USEA offers a discount of $25 on annual USEA memberships for current students of universities and colleges registered as Affiliates with the USEA. Many events across the country now offer Intercollegiate Team Challenges where collegiate eventers can compete individually as well as on teams with their fellow students. In Intercollegiate Team Challenges, each rider’s score is multiplied by a coefficient appropriate for their level to account for differences in level difficulty and then the individual scores are added together to determine the team score.

The USEA would like to thank Bates Saddles, EQuine AMerica Magazine, FITS, World Equestrian Brands, FLAIR and US Equestrian for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program.
