The storied tradition of eventing continues at Maryland 5 Star, held at the beautiful Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, MD (Cecil County). One of only two 5 Star events in the United States, and seventh worldwide, the prestigious 5 Star (CCI5*) designation is the pinnacle of the sport of eventing, best described as an equestrian triathlon. A proud part of the state of Maryland’s prestigious horse and equestrian tradition, Maryland 5 Star showcases four days of competition in Dressage, Cross-Country, and Show Jumping.

Fair Hill is a 5,656-acre MD Department of Natural Resources Management Area, conveniently located between Baltimore and Philadelphia, with proximity to Delaware. Fair Hill is known for its pristine terrain, woodlands, and natural beauty. The property was formerly owned by William duPont, Jr., an avid equestrian and racecourse developer, then it was purchased by the State of Maryland in 1975.
