The inaugural Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill will be available to fans near and far thanks to daily broadcasts on Maryland Public Television (MPT) and livestreams on USEF Network and Horse & Country.

The Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill, one of only two five-star level events in the United States and just the seventh worldwide, is set for October 14-17 at the newly constructed Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, Maryland (Cecil County). The event’s prestigious five-star designation is the pinnacle of the Olympic sport of eventing, often described as an equestrian triathlon.

In addition to the five-star competition (CCI5*-L), the event will also feature a three-star competition (CCI3*-L), which is serving as the USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Championship, and The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships Presented by Dubarry of Ireland. The four days of eventing competition will feature dressage (Thu-Fri), cross-country (Sat) showcasing the new Ian Stark designed courses, and show jumping (Sun).

The entire CCI5*, including Wednesday’s horse inspection, will be available via livestream through USEF Network in North America and through Horse & Country outside North America. USEF Network will also provide exclusive coverage of the CCI3*-L. Additionally, press conferences will be livestreamed through the event’s Facebook page.

MPT will broadcast the event live on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, while Saturday’s cross-country phase will be shown that evening from 5:00 -9:00 p.m. EDT.

MPT-HD’s schedule of live and recorded coverage during the four-day competition is as follows:

“We understand that not everyone will be able to join us in person for this event, but we are thrilled to be able to bring it live to the people of Maryland and eventing fans around the world,” said Jeff Newman, President & CEO of the Fair Hill Organizing Committee. “We’re glad everyone will be able to see all the action and excitement of this year’s inaugural event.”

About halfway through my 2009 Florida high-goal season, Hale Bopp came up lame. At the time she was 17. Our team’s veterinarian assessed her, found degenerative changes in one front ankle, suggested injecting that joint with hyaluronic acid and cortisone, and said she’d be ready to go for our next game in three days’ time.
