Meet Four Fair Hill First-Timers

Elkton, Md. - Oct. 16

What do a four-star veteran, a nighttime nurse, and two "quirky" Thoroughbred fans have in common?

They're all making their first trek to the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International!

We caught up with four riders who all came to Fair Hill with a different goal.

Jessica Schultz

The last time Jessica Schultz visited Fair Hill was in 2003 to watch the Pan American Games, so she was excited to get back, but this time, she brought Lock N’Load to compete in the CCI**.

Throwback Thursday: Wexford Carried Lauren O’Brien To Unimaginable Heights

Lauren O’Brien (nee Hart) was having a pretty unlucky year in 1995 as she prepared to tackle the Fair Hill International CCI*** with her horse of a lifetime, Wexford. 

Then 30, the eventer was trying to make ends meet galloping racehorses in Southern Pines, but after returning home from Fair Hill the year before, she lost her job and her living situation suddenly.

Things were looking up as she was selected to compete on the U.S. team at the Open European Championships in Pratoni, Italy, and spent the summer competing in England.

The Chronicle Staff's 2015 Fair Hill Picks

My drive up I-95 to Maryland on the third weekend of October every year is one of my favorites, because it’s time for the Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International. The leaves are changing, there’s a crispness in the air, volunteers greet you with a smile, and the smell of Maryland crab cakes and fried food wafts through the air at the United States’ premiere fall three-day.

Fletcher and Atlantic Domino Capture AEC Advanced Crown

Tyler, Texas—Sept. 26

Jacob Fletcher admitted he’d never been in the top position heading into show jumping at an event before, so as the last to jump in today’s Adequan Gold Cup advanced division and with top professionals having rails down, he was nervous.

But the 21-year-old showed maturity beyond his age and jumped clear with Atlantic Domino to stay on top of the leader board and bring home $20,000.

Tyler, TexasSept. 25   

Jacob Fletcher had a mission when he sent in the entries for his two advanced horses to the Nutrena/U.S. Eventing Association’s American Eventing Championships.

“I thought, 'This is Area V’s last time to host the AECs for a while. We can’t not let somebody from Area V try to win it one of these years. We can’t just let Buck [Davidson] and his crew come and win it every year!' ” he joked.
