Experience the Magic of The Event at Rebecca Farm This Summer
Every summer in Kalispell, Montana—nestled just 30 miles from famed Glacier National Park—the sport of eventing brings together people from the local community and across the nation to experience The Event at Rebecca Farm.
One of the largest equestrian triathlons in the United States, The Event at Rebecca Farm also has some of the world’s finest scenery. Each year it draws 600+ of riders of all levels, from amateur to Olympians, and more than 10,000 spectators… all of which create one spectacular community.

It is this same community that has ultimately helped propel The Event at Rebecca Farm to new heights. In 2017, The Event at Rebecca Farm will expand its community by welcoming young riders from across the continent and Canada for the North American Junior/Young Rider Championships, set to coincide with The 2017 Event. The young rider championship is the only one of its kind hosted in North America. Some have even called it the “junior Olympics of eventing.”

But beyond the accolades, The Event at Rebecca is also very personal for its organizer, Sarah Broussard. After losing her mother, Rebecca (The Event’s founder), to breast cancer, Sarah turned her grief into action and ultimately inspired others to halt cancer by establishing Halt Cancer at X, an initiative that raises money for breast cancer research. All funds are raised during The Event at Rebecca Farm through donations. To date, Halt Cancer at X has raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars to fund cancer research and support services.

The organizers behind The Event hope to see it continue to grow, and encourage newcomers to experience the magic of The 2017 Event at Rebecca Farm, July 19-23, 2017.
