You can follow the Pan Ams action live on ClipMyHorse.TV all week. I’ll drop the schedule (subject to change) below. Please note, your USEF linked account for ClipMyHorse.TV will not give you access to this stream. You’ll want to subscribe separately for this and access to on-demand footage from events like Maryland, etc.
