While the season has been well underway for several weeks, it feels very much like the annual Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce’s Field is an unofficial opening to the eventing year. Title sponsored by Conceal and presented by Taylor Harris Insurance Services with a $100,000 pot of prize money on the line, this year’s festival promises to be top quality and full of some of the best riders in the world.

The action gets underway in earnest tomorrow, with dressage and show jumping kicking us off on Friday and concluding with cross country on Saturday. The “condensed” showcase format means the cross country will be much shorter than you’d typically see — the optimum time is generally under 5 or 6 minutes, and oftentimes jumps are jumped in both directions to maximize the use of space — which also means the event is incredibly spectator-friendly.

If you’re wanting to take in the sights this weekend in Aiken, you can still grab a general admission ticket by clicking here. The event is also seeking a few more volunteers, particularly for cross country crossing on Saturday. Click here to sign up — you will also receive free admission to the entire event.

The event will be live streamed on Horse & Country, and you can either use your H&C+ membership or buy a one-time event pass to follow along. Click here to view your options and access the live stream.

As you can see, there is plenty on the docket to take in, including demonstrations, course walks, and the return of the “Cowboy Up!” challenge.
