Well, I am going but not competing. I will be volunteering all day Saturday. If I drove, it would take me about 8 hours. I will instead, take the train and be met at the station by my DAUGHTER! Yay.
Fair Hill is a gas, BTW. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
I'm entered and am now in the "holding my breath hoping it all hangs together" stage of event prep. It will be the first *** for me and my horse. I'm already having event anxiety dreams! I'm also very excited since 5 weeks ago I thought I was out for the season, but my 40-mumble body has really come through for me and healed amazingly well.
Well, I can't tell you about the food as the only times I've been to FH I have been in the 10-minute box all day! Crab cakes are the local specialty, so I'd be sure to get ahold of some of them!
yventer, JCW will get you 'virgins' thru it all with flying colors! No worries! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif
I will be going there for my first time! I just moved about 15mins away from there, and have been loving the fact that alot of events are within a few hours of me! And spending alot of time at FH in general for schooling, schooling events, and drooling over all the recognized stuff.
Hey, watch for Gina Economu from California in the 3 star. Gina introduced me to the wonders of eventing and kept me going through the ups and downs of my early days in the sport. She's great fun and a true sportsman with a fantastic attitude.
I'm going "just for fun" this year. I'll be the one attached to the huge black German shepherd dog (come say hi, he's friendly!). I'm bringing Nox as motivation to keep myself out of the AWESOME trade fair (spent my fall trade fair budget at Radnor Sat, sigh). It is only a 1.5 hr drive for us. Fairhill is always a lovely event and worth any trip to get there! Especially this year with the Pan Am riders!
My friend/coach Becky Douglas is leaving for Fair Hill on Friday. Will take her 2 days to get there from Minnesota. She's bringing 2 horses - her long time partner Highland Hogan and her young horse Courageous Comet. Please take photos and keep me posted on how she is doing.
