As a precaution due to Saturday’s weather forecast, the following changes have been made for the Cross Country Driven by Land Rover at the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill:

  • The CCI3*-L will start at 9:00 a.m. EDT.
  • The CCI5*-L will start at approximately 12:20 p.m. EDT, not its original time of 1:00 p.m.

Schedule remains subject to change due to weather. For updated scheduling and full event results, visit

The entire CCI5* is available via livestream presented by MARS Equestrian. It can be accessed through USEF Network in North America and through Horse & Country outside North America. USEF Network is also providing exclusive coverage of the CCI3*. A link to the livestream is available on the event’s website via the USEF Network player. Additionally, press conferences are being livestreamed through the event’s Facebook page.

Lynn Symansky also posted on her Instagram page that she has withdrawn RF Cool Play.

“Spent a good part of yesterday a bit ill, and with Coolio new to the 5* level and already on the lighter side of fitness and runs, I’ve made the decision to withdraw before cross-country,” Lynn said. “It’s not a decision I take lightly, as he’s a great XC horse sitting in 4th position at his first 5*. While we often thrive in less than ideal circumstances, I feel it’s in the best interest of the horse to reroute to Tryon.”
