The USEA is accepting expressions of interest from potential host sites of the American Eventing Championships (AEC), beginning in 2016.   The AEC, which is conducted over 4 days, may be held anywhere in the United States. While the competition has previously run during the month of September, all potential dates may be considered. Historically, the AEC has been held at a location for three years at a time, but the USEA is open to contracts of varying terms.
