Join us for April Recognized Horse Trials at beautiful Fair Hill State Park (NRMA) in Fair Hill, Maryland.
2021 weekend competition includes: CCI 4/3/2-S, Advanced, Intermediate, Preliminary, and Training levels. 4* and Advanced levels XC will be on the Gallagher Road Course ! Everyone else will be running XC on the Sawmill course.
We need our trusted and talented volunteers to cover three days! Friday is only dressage. Friday evening we need to change at least one arena over to a jump courses-- so we will need a crew for that. Saturday will be dressage, stadium and XC. All Prelim and Training take place on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday should be a shorter day. We will update this site and the work shifts with exact arena locations as soon as they are finalized. Meanwhile...please sign up!
Volunteers receive T-shirts, lunch, snacks and refreshments, much appreciation, and the opportunity to see many Olympic and International riders "up close & personal"! Volunteers who check in on this app can accumulate hours towards FHI schoolings and USEA leader boards. And, we will be giving some insights to all the developments and plans for volunteer opportunities at the Maryland 5* in October. Stay tuned.
Covid -19 precautions will still be in affect. This mean modified check-in, masks, social distancing and no spectators will still be required.
