Chesapeake CTR (Fair Hill, MD)

This past weekend, Dream and I took part in the 2-day 50 at the Chesapeake CTR. It took place in Fair Hill, MD at the fantastic equestrian facility located there (its most famous for its 3 day eventing, but it has tons of trails too). The weather gods were smiling, as we had clear skies and temps in the middle 80s on Saturday and clear skies and temps in the low 70s on Sunday.

Ready to head out on day 1:



Trails vary from open fields to wooded singletrack.





Lots of horse property backs up to the park too. I think this guy wanted to come along!





Tons of natural water:



Trails are well maintained (and were well-marked for the ride):



I couldn't resist trying a couple jumps before finishing on the 2nd day, so they are at the very end of this vid.


Photos courtesy of Feather Hill photography (they look great on my wall!):





In the end, Dream placed 2nd. It was her first CTR, so I couldn't have been more pleased!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Fantastic Dawn! Dream is such a wonderful horse, taking all that scary stuff in stride and just looking around for the next challenge:) She is so, so, so, SUPER FABULOUS.

The pics & video are really nice, that helmet cam takes some great footage!

Thanks so much for taking us on your ride, it makes me want to jump up and fly thru the woods on my horse!

This ride was put on by ECTRA. They do rides up and down the east coast. Not sure if there are others in Maryland besides the springtime ride at Fair Hill. Only other rides I have been to by ECTRA have been in New Jersey.
