Fair Hill International announced yesterday that it is tripling the prize money for the 2017 Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Three-Day Event October 12-15, 2017, raising the purse to $50,000.
“Fair Hill International is truly in a Renaissance phase right now,” said Fair Hill Executive Director Carla Geiersbach. “While we are best known for our nearly 30-year tradition of competition excellence, we also understand that the sport of eventing is evolving and we must evolve with it. We realize we must cast a wider net and welcome new spectators and sponsors into the sport.
“Fair Hill has always been about the heart and soul of eventing. This new level of prize money will hopefully allow riders to focus on their training and know their hard work will be rewarded.”
Fair Hill International is a destination event for CCI2* and CCI3* competitors each fall. It serves as the USEF National Two-Star and Three-Star Championship as well as the USEA Young Event Horse 4 and 5-Year-Old Championship. It has been a staple U.S. equestrian competition venue for decades and in 2017 celebrates its 29th year of hosting equestrian events.
“We are very excited to be able to offer prize money at a level that is on par with the excellent competition that happens every year here in October,” said Co-President Trish Gilbert.
