AEC Wednesday Social Media Roundup: It’s a Family Affair

There will be 949 starters in the American Eventing Championships over the next few days at the Kentucky Horse Park — that’s a record-breaking number of competitors at a single event in North American history. That number in and of itself is pretty mind-boggling, but even more so when you think about the number of family members, friends and supporters that will descend upon the park as well to cheer on their loved-ones.

Every eventer knows that this sport is really a family affair, whether that family is by blood or by adopted barn-family friendships. As the Intermediate and Preliminary divisions got to gear up and gallop out on cross country today and the Training and Modified divisions took centerstage in the sandbox, we’re celebrating the amazing days ahead to be had by all. 3 … 2 … 1 … Have a great ride!

It was pretty cool following Elisa into the Rolex Arena for the #aec2019 Dressage Phase yesterday! We rode at almost the same time. Ultimate Victory aka Cody is contesting his 3rd Intermediate Championships this week. Cross-Country Day is today and having a record of 7th in 2012 and 7th in 2013, we are here to make a good comeback! It’s been a long road back up the level since I got him back last year. Hoping for a confident round for him as we continue our quest back up the ranks!
