Top six places in each class for dressage and western dressage for Junior, Young Rider, Adult Amateur, and Open divisions will receive ribbons within three weeks after the show closes.

We anticipate that entries will fill quickly and because there is a limited number of rides available for each show. Early registration is recommended. During registration you will declare the division and level you plan to ride in. You will list your test when you submit your video.

Now On Course: Kristen Brennan Conquers Life Challenges to Compete at the AEC

My victory lap around the Rolex Arena on my horse Snap Decision (“Geoffrey”) at the 2023 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds was the highlight of my equestrian career. Was I leading it? Nope. I brought up the rear with a 15th-place finish, but I was celebrating like I had just won a five-star. My joy was amplified by being surrounded by family and friends who were just as excited as I was.
