Fair Hill International Wraps Up the Season a Huge Success!

Fair hill put on an awesome event with record entries and spectators in attendance.  Derek Di Grazia built another amazing course, rewarding forward rides and fit horses.  Our local designers would benifit greatly in taking notes from the professor for XC course building.
I rode 3 horses in the CCI 2 star which had a record 114 entries, and I was very happy with how all of my rides finished the event.

Curran Simpson's Dday competed in his first 2 star after an on and off season consisting of multiple set backs.  I feel Dday came through the event a better horse and I'm looking forward to what we can do together next season.

Mclovin, owned by Heather and Bob Sinclair, was a star in all phases jumping around the XC course, just adding 2 time penalties and showjumping clear to finish in 9th place. After this event he's giving me the feeling he is ready to step up to 3 star next year.

Fernhill Classic, owned by the Fernhill Classic Syndiciate, also had a great event completing his 3rd 2 star to take 11th place.  We have held Classic back at the 2 star level to establish a solid base, and after jumping double clear at all of his CCI 2 stars, I feel we are ready to step up to 3 star in the spring with confidence.

The event wouldn't have been such a success without the entire Woodstock Eventing Team, pictured here in the warmup.  Many thanks go out to our owners, sponsors and entire team who made this busy weekend a huge success!!!  ~  Ryan
