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.

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
