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.
At the 2021 event, in addition to the traditional $5,000 Ride for Charity competition, we added an online popular voting platform so YOU the fans could vote for your favorite team. At $5/vote the 2021 #RideForCharity popular vote raised $7,120! 100% of those monies raised went back to the charitable organizations you voted for. We're bringing this popular competition back and hope you will beat last year's record!

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 have been involved and supported the Eventing Showcase in Aiken.
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.
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.
