Eventing fans gathered around the infield of the steeplechase track at Fair Hill in Elkton, Maryland on Wednesday afternoon for the first horse inspection at the 2022 Maryland 5 Star. In the CCI5*-L there were 25 horses presented to the ground jury of Angela Tucker (GBR), Martin Plewa (GER), and Mark Weissbecker (USA), but only 24 horses were accepted.

Liz Halliday-Sharp presented Ocala Horse Properties’ Deniro Z (Zapaterro VDL x Zonne-Trend), but the 14-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding was sent to the hold box. Sadly, upon representation, Deniro Z was not accepted. The remainder of the field was accepted upon first inspection and all horses were on their best behavior on this beautiful, sunny afternoon in Maryland.

Dressage gets underway for the five-star at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday.
