Eventing fans are well aware of the six CCI5* events: Badminton (UK), Burghley (UK), Adelaide (AUS), Pau (France), Kentucky (US) and Luhmühlen (Germany). All elite-level, prestigious events that bring out the world’s top combinations.

In 2020, six will become seven with the addition of a second CCI5* in the United States. The Maryland CCI5* will be held 14-18 October at the well known Fair Hill facility. The Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill marks a new chapter for the state of Maryland’s prestigious horse and equestrian tradition.

It will be exciting to see another five star event added to the international eventing calendar - stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!
