“American Equestrians Got Talent” is back on track with a finale set for Sunday, March 17 at 6 p.m. at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival VIP tent (13500 South Shore Blvd. Wellington).
AEGT was created by six-time Olympian Robert Dover, as a fundraiser for the Emerging Athlete Program for Dressage. Now in its fourth season, AEGT has begun its 2019 talent search. Online auditions are open at www.aegtusa.com, and live auditions will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 6 and Wednesday, March 6 at Romeo’s Italian Restaurant (13889 Wellington Trace, Suite A14, in the Wellington Marketplace).
AEGT will crown the grand prize winner with $10,000. Three runners-up will receive cash prizes as well.
The auditions are an opportunity for performers across the equestrian community to showcase their non-horsey talent. Last season’s competitors included musicians, singers and dancers. Every type of performer is welcome, such as magicians, contortionists, comedians, jugglers and everything in between. Those wishing to participate should submit a video no longer than three minutes.
