Friends of Fair Hill International – 2018
This is Fair Hill International’s 30th Anniversary year as host of the premier autumn CCI*** 3-Day Event in North America. Karen Lende O’Connor, U S Olympic Team member at multiple Olympic and World Equestrian Games, was the winner of the initial CCI*** competition here in 1989. And over the past three decades, many other Olympians and leading international Eventers have competed at our renowned October Event. The list of Fair Hill International (FHI) winners over the years reads like an Eventing Hall of Fame.
Hosting events that showcase the best in the sport is only one part of FHI’s mission. We believe it is also our responsibility to build the sport of eventing by introducing it to new spectators and offering opportunities to train and compete at every level.
In order to grow the sport we need to be the place where an eight year old kid can watch cross country for the first time and say, “I want to do THAT someday,” AND we need to be the place where s/he can do it! FHI offers opportunities for every level of horse and rider to train and compete – truly fulfilling our mission of helping horses and riders go from GREEN TO GOLD.
Your support of this mission also allows FHI to lead the way in supporting equestrian sport on public land. As the sport loses more and more three-day events hosted on private land, FHI demonstrates the leadership role our sport can take in investing in land that benefits everyone – riders, bikers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts. FHI’s goal is to embrace, not erase, the rural heritage that means so much to all equestrian disciplines.
To sustain all of these activities and to continue to grow to an even higher international level of competition, we need your financial support more than ever. Please make an annual tax-deductible gift now to the Friends of Fair Hill International.
