RNS Video is out in force this week at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships, capturing all the action. Not only do they do a great job, you can count on them to be up burning the midnight oil, editing and uploading video so that we can experience it just hours after it happens. It’s the second best thing to being here in person!
Their latest video is a montage of Friday’s Training through Advanced level cross-country leaders, which are…
Adequan USEA Gold Cup Final: Jacob Fletcher and Atlantic Domino, owned by Company Fletcher Farms. They head into show jumping on a 3.4 point lead over Buck Davidson and Wundermaske.

Our friends at the USEA (who have pulled out all the stops this week to make the 2015 AECs an event to remember!) posted a recap of all the divisions here, including interviews with all of the leaders — you can check it out here.
Be sure to “like” RNS on Facebook to get a head’s up about new videos as they post them. And if you’re competing at the AECs yourself, go buy your video! For many riders the AECs are a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you’ll be grateful you have on film on down the road.
