Posted by EQTV Network on Friday, February 8, 2019
The inaugural $50,000 LiftMaster Grand-Prix Eventing is taking shape in the heart of Aiken, S.C. at Bruce’s Field. EN shared the tentative entry list earlier this week, and we’re excited to see many of our country’s best riders joined by the likes of William Fox-Pitt and Andrew Hoy.
The Aiken Horse Park Foundation rounded up a few of the competitors you can expect to see for an evening Q&A earlier this weekend. Phillip Dutton, Boyd Martin, Doug Payne, Ryan Wood, Waylon Roberts and Colleen Loach talk about their horses, the showcase’s place in their training schedule and why they are #TeamAiken. Take a listen!
Grand Prix Eventing is a USEF Advanced level recognized competition held March 1-2 at Bruce’s Field in Aiken, S.C. Dressage and show jumping will take place on Friday, March 1, and cross country will be held in the afternoon on Sunday, March 2. If you missed our sneak peak of the jumps — which will all have an Aiken theme — don’t miss it here.
This will be a fun outing to enjoy a bite-sized version of eventing, so grab your friends, bring and picnic and come see us at Bruce’s Field. General admission tickets cost $12 per day, or you can purchase a weekend pass for $20. Click here to purchase general admission tickets. You can also find information on VIP tickets at this link.
