THE LOWEST TEAM SCORE IN THE HISTORY OF THE OLYMPICS! ๐Ÿšจ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿฅ‡

This GB Team is one of the highest rated teams the sport has ever seen and arrived here under pressure. Safe to say they have delivered. Three debut Olympians go home with three gold medals. 86.3 is the best ever team score in the history of the Olympics and delivers the first Team Gold medal for Britain in nearly 50 years. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

We are utterly devastated to hear the news of Annie Goodwin's passing. A rising star in the sport of eventing, she was a frequent competitor at Bruce's Field. Her huge smile, infectious laugh, enthusiasm for life, and dedication to her sport, made her an endearing member of our community. Annie was a fixture at our winter schooling days since their inception in 2016. She was a member of our LiftMaster Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce's Field committee, and had her rookie start in this past March's showcase. Our hearts go out to her family, her parents Tina & Putter, her fiancรฉ Jake, and all of her dear two and four legged friends. She will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.

An Event Like no Other!

In 2019 the Aiken Horse Park Foundation was pleased to introduce Aikenโ€™s first Eventing Showcase, held at Bruceโ€™s Field March 1-2, 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 sportโ€™s top riders, Aiken makes an ideal host for this exciting new format, bringing the story of Aikenโ€™s eventing roots full circle, to Bruceโ€™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. Phillipโ€™s many successes on the world stage and his commitment to Aiken have had an extraordinary impact on Aikenโ€™s economy. Each year, the townโ€™s population swells throughout the three winter months, as the international eventing community focuses on Aiken, South Carolina.

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

We couldnโ€™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 Whoโ€™s Who of USA Eventing riders, and international competitiors 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 Showcaseโ€™s โ€œRide for Charityโ€ and were generously rewarded for their involvement.

Honored to support Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce's Field!
Our friends at Equine Rescue of Aiken (you might remember them providing horses for our RRP Master Class at last year's LiftMaster Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce's Field) suffered the unthinkable over the weekend, and lost their entire main barn to fire. Fortunately, only one pony was in the barn at the time, and he was pulled to rescue and immediately taken to the vet for treatment. Equine Rescue of Aiken lost not only the entire structure, but approximately $100,000 worth of medical supplies and daily care items. If you can make a contribution to support this hard-working organization, it will be much appreciated! Donate via Facebook or make a direct contribution to Equine Rescue of Aiken at https://aikenequinerescue.org/.

What a great and exciting competition at the LiftMaster Grand-Prix Eventing Festival at Bruce's Field! Z and Fernhill Singapore (in video) both had great starts to the year with nice, easy rounds, and I was very happy with both of them today. Congrats to Tamie Smith and Mai Baum on the win!
