USEA American Eventing Championships
The USEA American Eventing Championships is the annual national championships for every level of eventing from Beginner Novice to Advanced. Each September, hundreds of juniors, adult amateurs, and professionals travel from all across the nation to participate in this prestigious competition, vying for the chance to win a piece of the prize money and fabulous prizes and the chance to be named the best in the nation at their respective levels.
The USEA has selected Lexington, Ky., as the host city of the USEA American Eventing Championships for a two-year term beginning in 2019. The 2019 and 2020 events will be managed by Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI) and Mary Fike, organizer of the Park Equine Kentucky Classique. The events will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The AEC has become a central goal for eventers of every age and to even qualify is a pinnacle achievement. The AEC is unique in the fact that it brings together around 500 competitors of every age and experience level from all corners of the country to one venue. This championship is the only one in the country where a 12-year old girl riding her pony has the chance to compete alongside multiple Olympic riders.
AEC would not be possible without this lineup of incredible sponsors: Nutrena, Adequan, Devoucoux, Merck Animal Health, Standlee Hay, Parker Equine Insurance, Charles Owen, CWD, The Chronicle of the Horse, Auburn Laboratories Inc., Smartpak, Dubarry of Ireland, FITS Riding, Eventing Training Online, GumBits, Revitavet, Ride Heels Down, The Scoring Chix, and more.
