A relentless rain didn’t put a damper on the first horse inspection at the 2019 Dutta Corp Fair Hill International Three-Day Event in Elkton, Md. The CCI3*-L presented first in front of the ground jury of Helen Brettell (GBR) and Valerie Vizcarrondo Pride (USA) and all 62 horses were accepted to start the competition. C Me Fly ridden by Colleen Rutledge and Jos UFO De Quidam ridden by Heather Jane Morris were both sent to the hold, but were accepted upon reinspection. Lasse 73 ridden by Jennifer Salinger was asked to jog twice, but was accepted after the second pass down the lane.

The 47 CCI4*-L horses got the worst of the rain, but the ground jury of Martin Plewa (GER), Angela Tucker (GBR), and Robert Stevenson (USA) accepted them all upon inspection. The only horse in the division sent to the hold was Early Review ridden by Sydney Solomon, but she was accepted after a second look.

Will Faudree and FRH Ramona will be the first pair down centerline tomorrow in the CCI3*-L. The CCI4*-L dressage starts tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. with Clayton Fredericks and FE Stormtrooper. The USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships dressage and conformation phases get underway at 7:44 a.m. YEH ride times are available here.

All CCI4*-L phases will be livestreamed on USEF Network and you can follow along with the CCI3*-L via the live scoring.
