Day 4 (I think...) It is hard to keep track of time when you aren’t in the “real world,” but we did dressage today, so it must be Friday. Courtney Carson had Quantum looking like the star he is, with a set of braids the hunter people would have been killed to have. Quantum didn’t have quite the test we had hoped for, but he is for sure going to be a force to be reckoned with in the future. The atmosphere was quite electric and he felt it (and being half Thoroughbred, when he feels it, you know it. No internalizing for this guy!).

In 2017, US Equestrian (USEF) approved a recommendation to award a new CCI4* event to Fair Hill. After the FEI announced the changes to the star system in November of 2017, Fair Hill made the decision to wait until the specifications for the new five-star were finalized before moving forward with improvements to the facility.

We got up early and had a very French breakfast made by our host, which beat the piece of tongue I had last night (it had hair on it, so I’m not sure what part it came from, but I can assure you as a veterinarian, it was NOT tongue). Then we headed out to watch Doug school early, then watch dressage and walk cross-country.

High level dressage was expected this morning in the 6-year-old CCI* FEI World Breeding Eventing Championships at Le Lion d’Angers with the likes of Piggy French (GBR), Michael Jung (GER), Sandra Auffarth(GER), and Thomas Carlile (FRA).Any of these favorites would have been an likely leader at the end of day one, but the U.S’s Elisabeth Halliday-Sharp riding Deborah Halliday’s Cooley Moonshine, an Irish Sport Horse gelding (Cobra x Kilpatrick Duchess) outclassed the rest of the field in this first half of the dressage competition for a mark of 22.4.

Much like how a student will spend the year studying and preparing for a comprehensive final exam, the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Championship jumping test is designed to be the ultimate test of a young horse’s education over fences. Fair Hill International in Elkton, Maryland has been hosting the USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships concurrent with their fall three-day event for 10 years, serving as the final stop of the season for many 4- and 5-year-old young event horses.
