It was a blustery afternoon on the first day of competition at the 2018 Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Three-Day Event in Elkton, Maryland. Of the 66 CCI2* horses and 41 CCI3* listed on the draw order for the first horse inspection, one was not passed and three were withdrawn prior to the inspection.

The CCI2* competitors trotted up in front of the ground jury of Gretchen Butts (USA) and Peter Gray (CAN) and all were accepted. In the CCI3*, Mark Weissbecker (USA), Angela Tucker (GBR), and David Lee (IRL) accepted all pairs except for Erin Sylvester and Paddy the Caddy, who were sent to the hold box and not passed upon reinspection.

There were also three withdrawals prior to the first horse inspection: Business Ben, ridden by Allison Springer, and Military Mind, ridden by Whitney Maloch in the CCI3* and Cambalda, ridden by Alexa Lapp in the CCI2*. In total, 65 horses will move forward in the CCI2* and 38 will trot down centerline in the CCI3*.

Dressage competition for the CCI divisions will begin tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. in addition to the dressage and conformation phases for the USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships, which are running concurrently with the Fair Hill International Three-Day Event.
