AEC Hangover Social Media Roundup

It’s been all about the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships for the last week. This event is like the Super Bowl for the lower levels and a big money opportunity for the Advanced riders in the Gold Cup Final.

But what’s really great about the AEC is the immense display of support from friends and family, the excitement from the riders who have worked for months towards their goal of competing at the Championships and the pride that the whole eventing community feels when those they love – both four-legged and two – succeed. The AEC exudes the true spirit of the sport.

As we look ahead to the AEC’s move to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina next year, let’s take a quick look back at some of the great 2015 AEC moments from around the internet.
