We are so excited to welcome all of our friends back to Bruce's Field! We are working extremely hard to make this year's experience the best yet. Since 2019 we have been quietly laying the groundwork to kick off a capital campaign that will enable us to house more of our four legged friends in permanent stalls and to improve the competition layout by building a brand new featured events arena more aligned with the center of the venue, while also providing more schooling space in the Hunter 2/3 schooling area.

We have not yet raised all of the funds to complete this work, but in order to have in place many of these improvements prior to Aiken Charity 2022, we have been extremely fortunate to develop a solid relationship with Security Federal Bank here in Aiken, thus allowing us to forge ahead while we continue to fund-raise.

We hope each of you, as stakeholders in Bruce's Legacy will consider participating in our fundraising efforts. There are myriad ways and levels that everyone can support the campaign to help ensure that Bruce's Field is not only sustainable but a special venue for all to enjoy.

While we are progressing nicely, we remain an active construction site, and we ask for your patience and cooperation as we balance our expansion and running of the competition. Parking will be tight, and as such we have hired a parking liaison who will both assist and direct people to designated parking areas. Please help us help you to have a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Thank you to our Hospitality Sponsors,

for supporting the afternoon fun!

Sustainability was Bruce's Goal
He wanted to build a community resource, a community asset for generations to come. Bruce always tried to do the best he could with his animals, with his friends, and with his competition. We are dedicated to his wishes and committed to taking Aiken Horse Park, Bruce’s Field, to a never ending higher level of attractiveness and of competitiveness.
- Craig Duchossois
 At Children’s Place, our mission is to protect, heal, and strengthen children and families from the impact of trauma and other adverse experiences through education, treatment, and prevention services.
Great Oak "Go Getters" can be seen assisting all around the horse show! From the merchandise selection to Winner's Circle decorating, they're always on the move.
 Great Oak provides equine assisted activities that promote the physical, emotional, and psychological health of individuals with special needs. At Great Oak, we change lives. Our programs are the catalyst for unbridled personal growth and awareness. We share our knowledge to empower individuals and their families.
Volunteers from Children's Place will be on the back porch of the show office each morning, serving coffee and breakfast pastries from 7 - 9. Be sure to stop by!
Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers!


It is our goal that every division is sponsored each week, and that each afternoon hospitality event is sponsored as well. We hope you have enjoyed your past experience here in Aiken and indeed at Bruce's Field and will consider sponsoring once again in 2022.

We continue to make every effort to honor Bruce’s legacy by remaining true to his original vision. The ACHS is truly a labor of love dedicated to his memory. The success of our shows these last few years have translated into $130,000 distributed to a variety of local and national charities representative of Bruce’s pledge to increase public awareness of and support for the prevention and elimination of the abuse of children, elderly and abused persons and for the prevention of cruelty to animals. 
Please consider supporting our horse shows by choosing a sponsorship level that fits your budget. The Aiken Charity Horse Shows are the major fund-raising events intended to sustain the Aiken Horse Park Foundation throughout the year. Your sponsorship will allow Bruce’s Field to continue to be an important asset to Aiken and support this year's beneficiaries.
Since the beginning of 2020, and with encouragement from Green Is The New Blue, Bruce's Field has made a commitment to demonstrate best practices and environmental stewardship during events. We are limiting the use of single-use plastics by providing water stations at all of the in-gates, show office, and the hospitality tent. We hope everyone will take advantage of these resources by using their own refillable water bottle. Recycling whenever possible and water conservation, are two additional initiatives that you and your staff are asked to consider during your daily routines. Please help us support green practices.
