The Aiken Horse Park Foundation’s Grand-Prix Eventing committee would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone in Aiken, the Eventing community and beyond who were involved and supported the first Eventing Showcase in Aiken. 

We couldn’t be more pleased and excited with the success of the inaugural event. With around 5000 spectators including the Aiken mayor, an entry list boasting the Who’s Who of USA Eventing riders, and international competitors from Canada, Brazil, and the UK , it was a great and exciting Eventing spectacular. Even more impressive was the list of mainly local Aiken charities that participated in the Showcase’s “Ride for Charity” and were generously rewarded for their involvement.

We feel showcase events like this have an important role in the sport of Eventing, allowing for greater visibility and sponsorship opportunities outside of the equestrian world. Our goals for the future include our desire to help grow the sport as a whole as well as growing this event so that the Grand-Prix Eventing showcase, Bruce’s Field and the Aiken community remains the destination that equestrian riders and supporters come to visit, train, and enjoy during the winter months. 

Again we really appreciate everyone’s support.

Our Vision for Grand-Prix Eventing at Bruce’s Field is to showcase the best of the sport of eventing. It will demonstrate the highest quality and innovation in competition, attracting top horses and riders Internationally. Its prestige and format will make it the ideal venue to provide an engaging event drawing a wide variety of spectators from all over. Highlighting the history and character of Aiken throughout the event and involving many local charities of Aiken will exhibit our pride in our community, and fulfill the mission of making the horse park a central fixture which “promotes Aiken’s equestrian way of life” and supports the community's civic, educational and charitable endeavors.
