Smiles, Hugs And Big Efforts: Favorite Moments From Fair Hill International

Warm and dry fall weather meant it was a Dutta Corp. Fair Hill CCI for the record books this year. The leaves hadn’t quite changed as they have in the past, but that didn’t make it any less picturesque.

While the entries were smaller and the crowds a little less, it was a still a good weekend of sport. See all the Chronicle's Dutta Corp. Fair Hill CCI** and CCI*** coverage. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend...

Little Claims First And Second At Fair Hill CCI***

Elkton, Md.—Oct. 16

Throughout the weekend Marilyn Little’s mares RF Demeter and RF Scandalous swapped places on top of the leader board at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI***, and today it was the greener RF Scandalous who took home the win after jumping a clear round over Sally Ike’s track.

Rf Scandalous led after dressage, and “Demi” took over the lead after a double-clear cross-country round yesterday, but she dropped a rail in the first part of the triple combination today giving her the runner up spot.

Little Holds The Top Two Spots At Fair Hill CCI***

Elkton, Md.—Oct. 14   

No one could catch Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous’ dressage score (41.5) today at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI***, but Little challenged her own lead with RF Demeter, and ended up in second (44.6).

Ryan Wood and Powell, who’ve been on a roll this season, slotted into third with a 45.0.

“Demi,” a 14-year-old Oldenburg mare owned by Jacqueline Mars, Raylyn Farms and Patrick White, has had a light season because she’s so experienced and Little wanted to target Fair Hill.

Little And Beshear Lead At Fair Hill After Day 1 Of Dressage

Elkton, Md.—Oct. 13   

A year ago RF Scandalous was on her way to completing her first CCI*** at Boekelo (the Netherlands) with Marilyn Little, but when she picked up an injury on cross-country, she wasn’t able to show jump.

After some time off this year to heal and some dressage shows to get some more practice, she was back to eventing by August.

Now Little’s at the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI*** (Md.) hoping to get that completion, and she’s well on her way, scoring a 41.5 to take the early lead.

Throwback Thursday: Victor Dakin Was King Of The Hills At Radnor

Denny Emerson may never have known the exact breeding of Victor Dakin, but whatever he was, he knew he was special.

The diminutive gelding was the horse that made Emerson, taking him to the 1974 World Eventing Championships (England) where they earned a team gold medal for the United States, and carrying him to victory in the advanced division at the 1976 Radnor-Hahnemann Three-Day Event Championships (Pa.).
