SIGH. It should have been cross country day North America’s first ever fall five-star, but we’ll just have to wait another 364 days. The weekend isn’t a total loss at least, as the organizers of the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill are hosting a virtual event with educational videos throughout the weekend. I watched dressage day and thought it was really neat to get a glimpse of judges’ assessment during a test. I’m interested to see what they have in store for today and I’ll be keeping my eye on their Facebook page.
