Three Step It Up At The Fair Hill CIC 2 Star!

Curran Simpson's Dday
Thanks to Steve Berkowitz for Photos!
Fair Hill put on a great show, turning up the heat for a perfect weekend.  I rode 3 great young horses who were all doing their first CIC 2 star:  Frankie owned by Steve and Karri Guy, Dday owned by Curran Simpson and Fernhill Classic.

Frankie was the first horse in the 2 star, producing a super test, leading for most of the day and ending up 3rd at the end of dressage.  Classic put in a decent test making a few green mistakes and Dday was hot to trot sitting in the top 10 after dressage.

In the show jumping, both Frankie and Classic pulled 1 rail, then Dday wanted a second look at the first jump, adding 8 penalties.
Classic Form!
Cross country conditions were perfect - the course was tough but fair. Classic and Dday smoked around clear, but Frankie took an unexpected peak at the drop into water, picking up 20.

Many thanks to Steve Berkowitz for all these fine photos.
At the end of the weekend all the horses finished sucessfully, qualifing them for the Bromont CCI 2 star in June.  

See you in Canada!
