After a one-year gap in 2020, international eventing competition will return to Morven Park this week starting Thursday, October 6, and running through Sunday, October 10. Not only will Morven Park see the return of their CCI2*-S, CCI3*-S, and CCI4*-S divisions, but for the first time ever the event is host to a CCI4*-L in which 26 top international competitors will battle it out for top honors. Add in their national divisions of Novice through Preliminary (which did run in 2020) into the mix and over 300 horse and rider duos will pay the historic property at Morven Park a visit this weekend in hopes of bringing home a blue ribbon.
