The Adequan USEA Gold Cup kicked off in 2004 with the goal of creating an exciting format of upper level competition and greater promotion of the sport of eventing.
Today, the series consists of 11 qualifying competitions at the Advanced and CIC3* levels which culminate at the 2018 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), August 29 - September 2, 2018, in Parker, Colorado. The $40,000 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division serves as the Gold Cup Final at the AEC, and the winner of the division will be named the 2018 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Champion.
