News from Eventing

Fair Hill will host the East Coast Future Event Horse Championships as well as the Young Event Horse Championships, in conjunction with the CCI in October this year.  The FEH program focuses on yearlings, two-year-olds, and three-year-olds, and judging the potential they have to become a successful upper level event horse. Each age group is judged separately, and genders within the age group are judged separately when the number of entries allows.  For more information about the competition, follow this link:

We are already doing some fairly heavy planning for the Fall Festival, which will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary in October. If you have wanted to get more involved in the Fair Hill Organizing Committee, this will be a good year to do it. Please contact the office.

We hope to see you at Fair Hill in April, as a rider, a volunteer or a spectator.
