We’re all set to go for an incredible week in the Bluegrass State, where the USEA American Eventing Championships are kicking off today with a record number of entries across all divisions. The USEA has been hard at work priming the Kentucky Horse Park for the 1000+ horses and riders who will be tackling the championship courses set by Derek di Grazia (cross country) and Robert Murphy (show jumping), and there will also be a live stream provided by RNS Video Media for anyone who is unable to attend in person.

We’ll be bringing you daily social media highlights on our Instagram story, photos from Shannon Brinkman’s team, and plenty of other reports to keep you up to speed on the happenings in Kentucky. This is the last year that AEC will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park (for the near future, at least), so it’s due to be an extra special year, particularly when considering the cancelation of the championship in 2020. Riders who qualified for 2020 were eligible to compete this year with some additional MERs.

You can bookmark this page for updated articles from AEC, and you can also visit the USEA’s AEC hub full of more information and coverage. We’ll link some pertinent information below for you as well.
