American Equestrians Got Talent kicks off tonight for its second year and promises to be a hit, drawing together equestrians from across the disciplines to showcase their non-horsey talents and compete for a grand prize.
Spearheaded by U.S. Dressage Team Chef d’Equipe Robert Dover, American Equestrians Got Talent will serve as a fundraiser to benefit USEF High Performance programs through the USET Foundation. It is a great way to support Team USA so make sure to come out and cheer on your favorite performer! After putting on a successful event last year, Dover is planning to take it to the next level in 2016.
This year American Equestrians Got Talent will be hosted each week in The Gallery at the Winter Equestrian Festival, and auditions are open to the entire equestrian community, including riders, grooms and others involved in any discipline. Auditions will be held each week for nine weeks with free admission to attend, and the weekly winners will receive $1,000 in prize money. On March 20, the top performers will each take center stage in the international arena at the Global Dressage Festival and give their all in hopes of walking away with the title of America’s Most Talented Equestrian and the grand prize, valued at no less than $10,000.
