In its inaugural year, the Maryland 5 Star, in Fair Hill, is one of the only two 5 star events that take place in North America. Eventing features three major disciplines in the Equestrian world: Dressage, Cross Country, and Show Jumping.

The Competition: Top Two Worldwide

To date, there are 13 Olympic veterans that have already registered to compete at the Maryland 5 Star – including four of the top eight competitors in the world!
