US EQUESTRIAN AND LAND ROVER ANNOUNCE EXPANDED PARTNERSHIP THROUGH 2023

21 April 2021

Land Rover has been a valued partner of US Equestrian and dedicated sponsor of the U.S. Eventing Team for more than a decade. This week, Land Rover confirmed its continued support of US Equestrian with a multi-year agreement as title sponsor of the U.S. Eventing Team, the U.S. Eventing Grant Program, and the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian™.

Now, US Equestrian is pleased to announce that Land Rover has expanded its support of equestrian sports as the new title sponsor of the Land Rover U.S. Driving Team and as the official vehicle for all USEF Hunter National Championships from 2021 through 2023.

As part of their ongoing commitment to facilitate and broaden representation of equestrian sports within mainstream markets, Land Rover sponsors the NBC broadcast of the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian, scheduled to premiere on May 2 at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC, with a re-air scheduled for May 15 at 1:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. Check local listings for up-to-date broadcast information.

The winning rider of the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event will not only claim their share of the prize fund, but will also be presented with the keys to a 12-month lease of a 2021 Land Rover Discovery.

There’s no doubt that Land Rover’s partnership has been beneficial to US Equestrian and the U.S. Eventing Team. Land Rover is a brand that understands equestrian sports and the equestrian lifestyle, and we’re thrilled to have their expanded partnership as the new title sponsor of the U.S. Driving Team and as the official vehicle of the USEF National Championships in the hunter discipline.
