Eventing Nation has the best readers in the land. And because nothing says “thank you” like free refreshments and swag, we are once again partnering with our friends at Amerigo to throw EN’s 5th annual Rolex Reader Appreciation Tailgate Party!  

Consider this your official invite.

When: Cross-country day! Saturday, April 29, from when the first horse sets out on course until the last horse passes the finish flags.

Where: We’ll be in tailgating spaces S240 and S241, near the jog strip and announcer’s tower overlooking the infield (see blue star on map). Red on right, white on left, party in the middle… we’re kind of hard to miss.

What: All the fun, all day long. Stop by to get EN temporary-tatted up, schmooze with a certain celebrity Chinch, quench your thirst, enjoy a snack, and win some sweet swag.


  • Submit your best “What’s the REAL Story Behind Chinch?” conspiracy theory for a chance to win prizes from Cavalor!
  • Drop some science in Rolex Trivia (2 p.m. hosted by Glenn and Jamie from Horses in the Morning) to win EN swag, along with a grand prize beautiful figure-8 bridle from Vespucci!
  • Download the brand new EN App to pick up a W.W.MJ.D. wristband!

What would Michael do? Win Rolex, clearly!!! #ThisAintNoRolex #RK3DE
