The 2016 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships are just around the corner! This year the competition moves to a new location at the beautiful Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina. From the most state of the art cross-country course eventing has ever seen to the endless entertainment provided for competitors and spectators alike, this is going to be one AEC that you don’t want to miss.
So how do you ensure yourself a front row seat to all the action? By signing up as a volunteer!
This year volunteers will receive complimentary meals, a ticket to the Welcome Party on Thursday evening and goodie bags including Tryon and USEA swag as well as various assorted other items from sponsors.
Being a volunteer means you’ll get to be up close and personal with some of the top athletes in our sport. You never know who you may meet volunteering. Top riders like Buck Davidson, Lainey Ashker and Tamra Smith are frequent AEC competitors and with the new location we’re excited to invite even more professionals!
As it’s been said many times before, volunteers are truly the backbone of Eventing. Without our volunteers it would be impossible to keep horse trials running smoothly.
No previous experience with eventing is required. Horse lovers of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome. There’s a job for everyone, even if you’re competing at the AEC, we encourage you to take some time and give back to the sport, so inquire about being a volunteer today!
You can sign up using the USEA’s AEC Volunteer sign up page or contact Volunteer Coordinator Jerri Lance at [email protected]

Four years ago, Megan Weber was feeling discouraged about her event horse who didn’t seem to want to do the sport. She’d made the decision to find a new horse but found she was struggling to connect to the several she’d tried.
She reached out to a friend who had experience with adopting mustangs, and the idea of an untouched, green horse sounded like a fun idea.
