The Adequan USEA Gold Cup kicked off in 2004 with the goal of creating an exciting format of upper level competition and greater promotion of the sport of eventing.
Today, the series consists of 11 qualifying competitions at the Advanced and CIC3* levels which culminate at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships, September 25-28 in Tyler, Texas. The $40,000 Adequan Advanced division serves as the Gold Cup Championship division at the AEC, and the winner of the division will be named the 2014 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Champion.
