The USEA is delighted to welcome a new company to our line-up of corporate sponsors. In 2012 Point Two will be the Official Air Jackets of the USEA. Point Two will be supporting many of the USEA’s programs with ProAir vests and PS-RS Hybrid jackets as well as gift certificates and prize money.
“Our passion for increasing safety in eventing underpins everything Point Two is working towards and we can think of no better partner to aid us in this than the USEA,” said Megan Gardiner.” By sponsoring the USEA we hope we can continue to help all eventers be as safe as possible both through use of our jackets and the continuation of USEA initiatives to increase and promote safety throughout the sport.”
Point Two will be the title sponsor of the Pony of the Year Leaderboard and will award a PS-RS Hybrid jacket to the winner at this year’s Annual Meeting and Convention. A PS-RS will also be awarded to the Young Rider of the year.

At the 2012 Nutrena/USEA American Eventing Championships, Point Two will be providing a slew of prizes. The competitors in the Training Amateur division will have a chance to earn a PS-RS and the winner of the Junior Novice division will be awarded a ProAir Jacket. In addition every other division winner will earn a $200 gift certificate and every second through sixth place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate.
Point Two gift certificates are also going to be given to winners in the SmartPak/USEA Classic Series, Adequan Gold Cup Series, and the USEA Young Event Horse Series.
The USEA is thrilled that Point Two has decided to offer our members a chance to win such a plethora of products and prizes.
Point Two was established in the summer of 2008, based on air vest technology available in the motorcycling industry, and in 2009 Point Two produced the first version of the ever-popular ProAir vest.

Over the past two years, the ProAir vest has evolved to inflate even faster and provide the rider with higher levels of comfort, as well as new colors, designs, and sizes.
The Child’s ProAir became available in September 2010, and in the summer of 2011, after 18 months of development, the combination air vest-body protector P2-RS was launched. A child’s version of this hybrid jacket is due in shops shortly.
Point Two is always looking for new and improved ways to help protect all horse riders and carriage drivers, regardless of their discipline or ability, whether in competition or hacking and schooling at home.
