These orioles, the state bird of Maryland, are ready to welcome the 5* riders home today. We’re all anxious to see how Ian Stark’s course will ride this afternoon and we’ll find out soon enough!

The CCI3*-L division will get things started at 9:15 a.m., followed by the CCI5*-L at 1 p.m. You can find 5* start times here and CCI3* times here.

Did you know we’re running some awesome giveaways and other activities this week at Maryland? A course walk this afternoon with Ema Klugman, a giveaway on Instagram for Fairfax & Favor as well as an Athletux ear bonnet (Frilly Fillies) and jump pad (Fleeceworks) bundle. Click here to learn more!

Don’t forget to check out our Maryland Form Guide, filled with all the info about every single horse in the 5*, and useful if you’re watching from home, or lucky enough to witness it in person.
