Fair Hill International Horse Trials – Elkton, Maryland. May 17-18, 2008

Competing for the second time at Intermediate, Courtney and Havasu Canyon did well in all three phases, placing 6th in dressage before a good stadium round and excellent cross country performance to move up and finish 5th.

At Training, Kentucky Bourbon lead the way, placing 3rd in dressage and jumping clean in stadium and on cross country to finish in 2nd place. Joining Bourbon at Training was Donnlara moving up from Novice for the first time. She also did very well in the dressage and jumped clean in stadium and on cross country to finish 3rd.

Sunday brought Novice and some very heavy rain; Courtney rode Icy Mist and Franklin. Icy did well in all three phases jumping double clear in stadium and on cross country. Franklin had a very good dressage test, tying for 2nd. He jumped a clear round in stadium, but unfortunately had a technical elimination going off course on cross country in the heavy rain. Neal also competed Hanna at Novice. They did well in dressage and jumped clean on cross country; placing 6th. (Rain forced the cancellation of their stadium round.)
