Mark your calendars! We’re thrilled to share the dates for the 2023 Grand-Prix Eventing Festival, held annually since 2019 in Aiken, SC at the Aiken Horse Park and Bruce’s Field (931 Powderhouse Rd, Aiken, SC). The upcoming event will run March 3-4, 2023 and will be presented by Taylor Harris Insurance Services. Always a popular spectator event and an exciting preview of the 5* horses prepping for Kentucky, it’s a good idea to snag your tickets in advance and all options are now available for purchase.
Advance ticket purchases will grant spectators access to an exclusive $25 Full Event Pass deal, which will provide access on both days of competition. Single day passes can also be purchased ahead of time or upon arrival at the event, but no Full Event Pass tickets will be available at the gate.

An Eventing “Showcase” is a unique version of eventing competition that condenses the traditional countryside eventing environment into a spectator friendly venue. The showcase format allows the general public the chance to be up close and personal, right next to the Capt. Mark Phillips-designed condensed cross country track, and experience the thrilling sport in a whole new way. It’s also a unique prep for the horses, most of whom will not see any sort of atmosphere in competition until they get to Kentucky.
Live streaming of this event will be carried on Horse & Country. Dressage and show jumping will take place on Friday, March 3, while cross country will provide the finale on Saturday, March 4.
