On July 23, 2017, the US Equestrian Federation (USEF) selected Fair Hill as the location for a fall CCI5*-L competition following an extensive process. The competition was supposed to debut in 2019, but the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) was in the midst of changing the star system and creating new requirements for five-star competitions. Fair Hill decided to delay until 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced an additional postponement. After four years the event has finally arrived and the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill will get underway on Wednesday, October 13.
Forty-eight horse and rider combinations have traveled from around the world in hopes of becoming the very first-ever Maryland 5 Star Champion. Buck Davidson will be the first down centerline with Carlevo and will also close out the competition with Erroll Gobey.
To help you get to know this year’s field of competitors, we’ve collected data on every horse and rider as well as fun facts about the pairs to get you excited for this weekend’s competition.
