As November 30 marks the end of the eventing season, December sees many eventers taking a break from the busy competition schedule that stretches year-round in the United States. In fact, the weekends of December 19-20, December 26-27, and January 2-3 are the only weekends of the 2021 season (which starts on December 1, 2020) that do not have any horse trials scheduled anywhere in the country.

If you are one of the eventers who calls Area III home, either full-time or just during the winter season, you have the chance to get a jump start on the 2021 competition season with one of the three events offered in December this year! Sporting Days and Full Gallop in Aiken, South Carolina and Rocking Horse in Altoona, Florida each have an event taking place during the first two weeks of December that are part of the 2021 competition season.

To enter one of these events (Sporting Days and Rocking Horse open next Tuesday, October 20, and Full Gallop opens the following Tuesday, October 27) simply complete your entry through Xentry or fill out and send in an entry form. The 2021 entry form will be available starting on October 20.

Cooley Master Class Can’t be Caught on Cross-Country at Maryland 5 Star

The forecasted downpours held off until the last horse and rider crossed the finish flags during the CCI5*-L cross-country at the Maryland 5 Star today, confirming the event’s decision to move up the start. The majority of riders had sunny skies and a cool breeze as backdrop to tackle Ian Stark’s five-star course across the sprawling grounds at Fair Hill in Elkton, Md. Before cross-country there was much chatter about the testing terrain, but 11 pairs managed to make the time despite the hills. At the end of the day, the top three riders held onto their podium positions going into show jumping tomorrow with overnight leader Oliver Townend and Cooley Master Class (Ramiro B x The Swallow) impressing all who watched at each and every question.
