Good afternoon from The 2017 Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International! Thursday morning was a blustery one for a cross country course walk, but it wouldn’t be Fair Hill without a little rain! Derek di Grazia returns as the course designer once again, and in true Derek fashion this course is a meaty one.
The track follows a similar path to last year, covering 2700 meters which riders will want to accomplish within the optimum time of 10 minutes. Build by Eric Bull and masterfully designed by Holly Covey and her team, this course is as beautiful as it is difficult.
In addition to a fence-by-fence view (sans Fence 18AB – our jumps in the arena), be sure to ride along for a bird’s eye drone preview from the Jamie Rees and the Fair Hill team:
Half the CCI2* division wrapped up dressage today, and the CCI3* group begins tomorrow, so keep it locked to EN for more competition action and thoughts from our riders on the cross country.
