“The Dutta Corporation has been an outstanding partner as the Official Shipper for the U.S. Dressage and Eventing Teams,” said Chris Welton, USEF CEO. “The Dutta Corp.’s commitment to not only continue partnership, but to support several competitions, as well, is not only great news for those events, but for all fans of equestrian sports.”
In addition to sponsorship, The Dutta Corp. will provide international travel for two dressage horses and one eventing horse each year for the 2015 through 2018 competition years.
