The capability and characteristics of a Land Rover and the rigors of eventing in equestrian sport match perfectly, to create a partnership as close as horse and rider; vehicle and driver.
LAND ROVER U.S. EVENTING TEAM
Land Rover is the proud official vehicle and sponsor of the U.S. Eventing Team. Extensive training and international experience, combined with the highest level of horse care, is all part of planning for international competition, and Land Rover is honored to support the U.S. team.
In 2019, USEF awarded over $116,000 in Land Rover Competition Grants for eventing athletes to further their training and experience in international competition.
