Land Rover North America is once again partnering with the 2017 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) again this year for the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in North Carolina that started yesterday, August 30, and continues through September 3, 2017.
The AEC gives both horse and rider combinations of every age and level an opportunity to compete in this special national championship. This event recognizes all professionals, amateurs, and juniors for their year-long accomplishments. It brings in the top riders in all divisions from all over the country to compete for the national title.
“We are happy to be a part of this weekend’s event as it helps develop the next generation of our equestrian athletes and also awards and recognizes the best riders in the nation, whether they are a Beginner Novice or are riding in the Advanced division,” Kim McCullough, Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC, Vice President of Marketing, said.
“This event does a great job of creating a championship environment and the stunning facilities int he foothills of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountain range provide the perfect environment to showcase the capability and design of our vehicles.”
In addition to having the pleasure of viewing an exciting cross-country competition (designed by Captain Mark Phillips), spectators will be able to enjoy Land Rover’s ‘Ultimate Stable.’ The ‘Ultimate Stable,’ features the all-new seven-seat Land Rover Discovery with a variety of top equestrian apparel and equipment.
Children will also have an opportunity to join in on the Land Rover fun. Land Rover will have a multiple scaled-down, electric-powered replicas of the Land Rover Series 1 (1948) for children, ages four through ten, to drive on an unique mini off-road course.
Land Rover North America is proud to continue their part as the Official Vehicle of the United States Equestrian Foundation and the U.S. Land Rover Eventing Team at the 2017 USEA AEC.
