All Clear Except the Skies at First Horse Inspection at The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International
Fair Hill International celebrates 31 years of eventing this weekend with the start of The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Three-Day Event (FHI). Held at the picturesque Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area in Fair Hill, MD, the historic fall event draws top riders from across the country to contest The Dutta Corp./USEF CCI3*-L and CCI4*-L Eventing National Championships.
Though chilly temperatures and pouring rain soaked the competitors during the first horse inspection on Wednesday afternoon, all of the horses who were presented to the Ground Jury were approved. Sixty-two CCI3*-L horses and 47 CCI4*-L horses will move on to the dressage phase.
Fair Hill International is privileged to once again host the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships, presented by Dubarry of Ireland. The Championships showcase up-and-coming 4- and 5-year-old horses who are evaluated for their talent in the sport and their ability to be successful at the upper levels of eventing. The YEH classes run over two days, starting at 7:44AM, with the dressage and conformation phases taking place on Thursday, while the jumping and awards wrap up on Friday. Ride times are available here.
The dressage for the FEI divisions takes place over two days, beginning at 9:12AM on Thursday and 8AM on Friday. Saturday's thrilling cross-country kicks off at 9:00AM with the CCI3*-L class, while the CCI4*-L division is slated to follow tentatively at 1PM. Sunday's final horse inspection will take place at 8AM, with the show jumping set to start at 10AM. Live scoring from the competition can be found here.
