Opening ceremonies begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m., and a family-friendly preshow event for kids and adults beginning at 4 p.m.
Typically, Raymond James Stadium showcases the speed and power of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but on Saturday, April 6, the athletes who take the field are of an entirely different breed. Top riders from USEF National List, including former and current Olympians, take center stage atop powerful steeds to showcase their skill and control by leaping over obstacles at the 41st American Invitational presented by G & C Farm. In addition to the title of champion at an event that calls itself the "Super Bowl of Show Jumping,” horse-and-rider tandems will compete to earn their share of the $200,000 prize purse.
This year's opening ceremonies include a tribute to military heroes and music by a cappella group Eclipse. Before the stadium opens, families can explore the Mane Event festival in the parking lot to find the Disney Radio crew, a horseless horse show competition, carriage rides, a petting zoo, and face painters that can make kids look like their favorite mare. At the Golden Horse Shoe after-party, guests enjoy beer or wine from an open bar and heavy hors d'oeuvres from different food stations, including a carving station, to keep them fueled for the dance floor.
Though the American Invitational presented by G & C Farm sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
