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.

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