The Aiken Horse Park Foundation is pleased to introduce Aiken’s first Eventing Showcase, to be held at Bruce’s Field in the winter of 2019. Grand-Prix Eventing is a spectator friendly two-day competition, featuring a morning of Dressage, an evening of Stadium Jumping, and an afternoon of running Cross Country. This equestrian triathlon presents a prime opportunity for top eventing riders to kick start their competition season, and to welcome the public to an exciting fast-paced equestrian event. 

 With its long history as the winter training grounds for many of the sport’s top riders, Aiken makes an ideal host for this exciting new format, bringing the story of Aiken’s eventing roots full circle, to Bruce’s Field. Olympic veteran and long-time winter resident, Phillip Dutton discovered Aiken when he prepared for the 1996 Olympic Games here, as a member of the Australian Team. Just as Aiken embraced Phillip and his Aussie teammates, Bruce Duchossois generously opened his stables to the team, initiating what became a long and deep friendship between the two. Phillip’s many successes on the world stage and his commitment to Aiken have had an extraordinary impact on Aiken’s economy. Each year, the town’s population swells throughout the three winter months, as the international eventing community focuses on Aiken, South Carolina.
