Since 2016, The Aiken Horse Park Foundation has raised almost $100,000 for a number of local charities. We are always looking for ways to support our community and broaden our reach to even more non-profits in the area.
The Aiken Horse Park Foundation is proud to host our Ride for Charity in conjunction with Grand-Prix Eventing at Bruce's Field. Every rider competing in the showcase will be paired with and represent a participating charity. The top three finishers earn a check for their respective organization.
The Aiken Horse Park Foundation would like to extend its thanks to all our sponsors, riders, officials, volunteers, and spectators. Your attendance of this incredible event makes it possible for us to continue supporting and promoting our local charities.
