BALTIMORE, Md.--After making its spectacular debut last year and being named the Best New Event of 2021 by PressBox, the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill will return to the Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Cecil County, Md., Oct. 13-16.
Tickets for the thrilling second edition are on sale now with tailgating options next to the Cross-Country phase to become available on Aug. 9.
The Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill, one of only two 5 Star level equestrian events in the United States and just the seventh worldwide, welcomed a total of 20,886 spectators and 184 competitors that featured four of the top eight eventers in the world for its debut in 2021, when three-time U.S. Olympian Boyd Martin and On Cue made history by claiming the first American victory in any CCI5*-L since 2008.
Now, the event’s management team is gearing up for a successful second year with some exciting new additions that will be announced soon!
The event’s prestigious 5 Star (CCI5*-L) designation is the pinnacle of the Olympic sport of Eventing, often described as an equestrian triathlon.
The four days of eventing competition feature Dressage (Thu-Fri), Cross-Country (Sat) showcasing Ian Stark-designed courses, and Show Jumping (Sun).
In addition to the 5 Star competition, the event also features a 3 Star competition (CCI3*-L), which serves as the USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Championship.
The Maryland 5 Star will also host The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships Presented by Dubarry of Ireland on Thursday and Friday, showcasing divisions for 4- and 5-year-old horses in what is best described as an equestrian talent search.
