On the fence about whether to put in your entry for the 2016 American Eventing Championships (Aug. 31 – Sept.4)? Let’s make a pros and cons list:
Fun championship atmosphere
Horsey road trips are the best (check out the USEA’s Ride Share Listings if you need a travel bud)
The Tryon International Equestrian Center looks super swanky
NASA quality cross country turf (Leslie Threlkeld got a sneak peak of the course here)
Loads of prizes from the USEA’s great sponsors
Chance to win chunk of a $100,000 purse
Bottom line: If you’re qualified (see qualified horses and qualified riders), do eeettt! And soon, because entries close today, Aug. 16 — visit Xentry to complete your entry. Competitors can check their entry status here.
