Sure, as long as you're qualified! Check out the list of Qualified Riders and list of Qualified Horses. Both horse AND rider must be qualified for the AEC in order to compete and must still be eligible for the level of competition at which you qualified.
As a service to our amateur members, the USEA IT department has developed a system to recognize amateurs who should be qualified for the Championships, but did not receive qualifying placements at events. Because many events hold "Open" divisions where the professionals and amateurs are joined together in one division, the amateurs may have a harder time trying to get the first or second placings they'll need to qualify them for the Championships. Sure, we have many outstanding amateurs who are very competitive in the Open divisions, but our hope is that our amateurs will receive an opportunity to qualify for the designated amateur divisions at the Championships, even when only open divisions are offered at qualifying events. Read more about this upgrade of placing/points.
Registration is available online using the USEA's Online Entry system, Xentry. The USEA created Xentry as a service to members, where one can easily enter any USEA recognized event from a central and secure website. Learn more about using Xentry. Note: Entry is not considered complete until the USEA receives payment.

More information to come
The USEA and Rebecca Farm recommend that you make your travel and lodging arrangements as early as possible, due to strong demand for accommodations in the Flathead Valley during the summer tourism season.
Several Kalispell hotels have agreed to offer special pricing on a limited number of rooms to AEC attendees. These rooms will be available on a first come, first served basis and their booking will be managed by Lisa Drye at Flathead Travel Services.
Please contact Lisa Drye directly at the phone number or email address listed below and reference AEC, or use link below to submit a request. She and her support team will be able to provide the latest information as to room availability and can help with other options once the special rate rooms have been fully booked.

Golf Cart Rentals
Due to continued inventory shortages across the states, we do not have access to golf carts this year for rental by competitors. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes.
Once again the USEA will be offering significant prize money and prizes thanks to our loyal sponsors.
Live scoring will be back on the USEA site again this year, so as soon as the judges know the scores, you'll know the scores! This way even if you can't attend the AEC, you can still keep up with your friends and family and find out how they're ranked in the competition.
