Fair Hill International adds new attractions in 28th year | Cecil Whig

FAIR HILL — Spectacular weather welcomed crowds of visitors to the rolling hills of Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area on Saturday.

They came to watch cross country competition on both three-star and two-star courses as part of the 28th running of an event that features top horses and riders in a variety of competitions from Oct. 13 through Oct. 16.

Eventing for horses has been described by some as a triathlon in equestrian sports because it tests the strength and stamina of the horse, as well as its relationship with the rider. Throughout the three-day event, horses are tested in dressage, cross country and show jumping in two-star and three-star categories.
