USA Equestrian
USA Equestrian Welcomes Hunt Club Bedding® As Sponsor

Hunt Club Bedding has come on board as the official bedding company of USA Equestrian. A portion of the sales proceeds of Hunt Club Bedding will be slated for the USA Equestrian Health Research Fund.

In January 1998, Triple Crown Animal Bedding Inc, was established to create an ideal bedding, with testing done at Southern Illinois University Department of Animal Science, Health and Nutrition. Upon research, Hunt Club Bedding was confirmed by SIU as meeting the strict and established criteria of its founder, Carl V. Santoeimmo, who was concerned with the dust and odor of other beddings and the impact they may have on his daughter's health, and the health of her horse.

Hunt Club, a U.S. & International Patented Animal Bedding, is now being used in prestigious stables, veterinary clinics, breeding and training facilities, competitive shows, racetracks and zoos. In 1999 Hunt Club Bedding was made available as the; "specialty bedding for animals with special needs and for high performance horses. The beneficial health and recovery bedding."

Kevin Burns, Assistant Executive Director, Development said, "USA Equestrian is proud to welcome Hunt Club Bedding as it's newest Torchbearer for equestrian sport. Hunt Club Bedding's commitment to support the mission of the Equine Health Research Fund is good news for all equestrians."

USA Equestrian Inc., as the National Equestrian Federation of the U.S., is the regulatory body for the Olympic and World Championship sports of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, reining, show jumping, and vaulting, as well as 19 other breeds and disciplines of equestrian competition. As
the country's largest multi-breed organization, the Federation has over 80,000 members and recognizes more than 2,800 competitions nationwide each year. It governs all aspects of competition, including educating and licensing all judges, stewards, and technical delegates who officiate at these shows.
The vision of USA Equestrian is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America, promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grass roots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its horses, and embracing this vision, to be the best national equestrian federation in the world.
