The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce GumBits has returned as a Prize Level sponsor at the 2016 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Land Rover (AEC). GumBits has generously agreed to provide prizes for all AEC prize bags. This year's AEC will be held August 31-September 4, 2016 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina.

"I am honored to once again sponsor the American Eventing Championship on behalf of GumBits, chewing gum for horses," said Principal Shereen Fugua. "In recent years we have had so many high performance eventers contact us letting us know the positive effects GumBits has on their competition horses. We are thrilled that High Performance Equestrians & Olympians such as Steffen Peters, Lauren Kieffer, Hawley Bennett Awad, Lauren Billys, Kate Chadderton, Matt Brown & Bobby Meyerhoff just love our product. This interest encouraged us to get involved with U.S. Eventing for their annual championship sponsorship which we plan to do each year."

GumBits promotes the salivation process and eliminates the teeth grinding which often can occur during the intense training of high performance sport horses. Not only does GumBits encourage chewing activity, trigger salivation, and eliminate teeth grinding, horses love the sweet taste. GumBits are made of all natural FDA approved ingredients and is safe and palatable.

"How do we know that GumBits produce a product that eventers love? Because GumBits have quickly established themselves as an innovative, all natural product that some of our favorite eventers swear by," said USEA CEO Rob Burk. "We genuinely appreciate their continued support of U.S. Eventing. If you haven’t had a chance to try out GumBits, pick some up."
