Fair Hill, MD- October 8, 2002The Fair Hill International
has been selected to host the Pan American Eventing Championship
in 2003. Since there will be no eventing at the Pan American Games
in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, next summer, the Fédération
Equestre Internationale (International Equestrian Federation
FEI), has chosen the Fair Hill International to host a Pan American
Eventing Championship at the Fair Hill Natural Resources Area, October

International but for all Eventing fans in the U.S., said
Fair Hill International founder and co-President Trish Gilbert.
We are thrilled to be able to host the best eventing horses
and riders from the entire Western Hemisphere and give our fans
the opportunity to watch this exciting championship competition.
The Pan American Games are held every four years, always in the
year prior to the Olympic Games. As always is the case in the Pan
American Games, the Pan American Eventing Championship at Fair Hill
will be held at the three star level.
United States traditionally does well in Eventing at the Pan American
Games. The U.S. won the team Gold Medal, as well as individual Silver
and Bronze Medals, at the last Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada
2003 Pan American Championship will mark the first time since 1991
that the Pan American Eventing Championship has been held separately
from the Pan American Games. In 1991, there was an Eventing Championship
held in Chatworth, GA, because there was no eventing at the Pan
American Games in Havana, Cuba.
