Eventing fans, rejoice: the good folks behind the $50,000 Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce’s Field have just released their schedule for this year’s competition, taking place March 3–4 at Bruce’s Field in Aiken, and it’s a real whopper.
Alongside the competition itself, which boasts an ever-expanding list of big name horses and riders, there are plenty of other exciting opportunities to learn and be thoroughly entertained while you’re at the show. Whether you fancy walking the showjumping course with Phillip Dutton or the cross-country with Doug Payne and Boyd Martin, you’ll be able to do so — or, sit back, get comfy, and enjoy some brilliant demos and masterclasses from polo professionals, carriage drivers, and top riders, too.
There are still tickets available for both days for general admission, and although VIP chalets are now sold out, you can get your paws on Saturday VIP access. Although you’ll be able to get general admission tickets on the gate for just $25 per day, we highly recommend booking ahead, not least because you can enjoy a seriously good discount for doing so — especially if you’re planning to attend both days.
If you fancy getting involved in a more hands-on capacity, a number of fun and rewarding volunteer positions are still available, including as a cross-country decorator, dressage warm-up steward, cross-country videographer, and more. Check out all the positions and sign up here.
Here’s the schedule in full:
Go Bruce’s Field, and Go Eventing!
