It’s nearly time to kick off one of the first big competitions of the 2021 season, and it’s one that riders have been looking forward to after the cancellation of so many events last year. The $50,000 Liftmaster Grand Prix Eventing at Bruce’s Field in Aiken, Sc. is a condensed-format showcase intended to show off the sport’s best athletes and features a star-studded entry list.
While the event is closed to spectators this year, the USEF Network and Horse & Country TV will be providing a livestream beginning tomorrow, March 5 at 7:30 a.m. EST. Saturday’s cross country will be shown only on Horse & Country TV (which is well worth a subscription with a load of content ready for your viewing!).
This Friday and Saturday, you can live stream all the action from the @LiftMaster Grand Prix Eventing at Bruce's Field exclusively worldwide on @HorseAndCountry H&C+ available at https://t.co/n69KWG8zqO #Eventing @eventingnation pic.twitter.com/UWMScELntL
