Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill
The Tradition Continues October 13-16, 2022!
The storied tradition of Eventing at beautiful Fair Hill continues with the Maryland 5 Star to be held at the newly constructed Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, MD (Cecil County). One of only two 5 Star events in the United States, and seventh worldwide, the prestigious 5 Star (CCI5*) designation is the pinnacle of the sport of eventing, best described as an equestrian triathlon. The inaugural event in October 2021 marked a new chapter for the state of Maryland’s prestigious horse and equestrian tradition. The event showcases four days of competition in Dressage, Cross Country, and Show Jumping.
Fair Hill is a 5,656-acre MD Department of Natural Resources Management Area, conveniently located between Baltimore and Philadelphia, with proximity to Delaware. Fair Hill is known for its pristine terrain, woodlands, and natural beauty. The property was formerly owned by William duPont, Jr., an avid equestrian and racecourse developer, then it was purchased by the State of Maryland in 1975.
