Finally, here's today's update from the CCI Horse Inspection:
The autumn sun was bright and bold at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International as competitors dressed to impress for the formal horse inspection. Located in beautiful Fair Hill, Maryland, the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International is one of the most prestigious international three-day events in the United States, and draws some of the world's top eventing horses and riders. This year, the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International will once again host the CCI3* along with a CCI2* and the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships.

In the CCI3* forty-seven out of forty-eight horses were accepted during the first inspection. New Zealand competitor Joe Meyer withdrew one of his two mounts of the weekend, South Paw, after being held during inspection. Justine Dutton was also held with Huck Finn, but was later accepted after re-inspection.
The CCI2* also experienced changes in the lineup. In a field of forty-six horse-and-rider combinations, forty-three will move forward in the competition. Withdrawn from the CCI2* was Sempre Fino ridden by Kelly Beaver, RF Overdressed ridden by Marilyn Little and Canadian competitor Waylon Roberts riding Lancaster.

Eventing is the ultimate test of a horse and rider and has been referred to as the Triathlon of equestrian sport. Through tests in dressage, cross country, and show jumping the horse and rider work together to show that they can compete in the most demanding and highest levels of equestrian sports.
In 2013 FHI joined forces with title sponsor The Dutta Corporation. The Dutta Corp is a leading international horse transportation company that was recently named the Official Shipper for the US Eventing Team.
