Friday 20th September 2013

As the official helmet of the United States Eventing Association, Charles Owen is excited for the opportunity to sponsor the 2013 American Eventing Championships. This year's AEC will be held for the first time at the Texas Rose Horse Park in Tyler, Texas and riders from all over the country will compete in divisions from Beginner Novice to Advanced. 

Charles Owen will be set up in the vendor area at the AEC providing complimentary helmet checks and sizing. Bring your current Charles Owen to the tent to have it checked for proper fit and condition. While you're there, take a look at our entire line of helmets and body protectors and be sized for the latest products including the Ayr8 with piping that can be customized to match any look!

There are a plethora of chances to win a Charles Owen helmet or body protector at the AEC this year. The winners of all 14 divisions will take home a Charles Owen helmet of their choice. In addition, Charles Owen will be presenting prizes to the winners of the Capt. Mark Phillips Pony Rider Award - awarded to the highest placing pony rider in the Junior Beginner Novice, Junior Novice, and Junior Training divisions. Finally up for grabs will be two body protectors given to the winners of the Charles Owen Technical Merit Awards.

"U.S. Eventers have been faithful to Charles Owen for many years," said Charles Owen Managing Director, Roy Burek. "And I am pleased that we are able to give back to the riders by providing sponsorship and prizes of this prestigious event. Good luck to everyone in Texas!"
