October 12-16, 2022 marked the second year for the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill event, showcasing four days of world-class competition in dressage, cross-country jumping, and show jumping. Achieve Equine proudly provided a newly designed custom logo FLAIR® Equine Nasal Strip to competitors. The bold black Strip emblazoned with the event’s multi-colored star and horse was a big hit amongst competitors. Riders continued to demonstrate their commitment to horse health and performance, with a high percentage of competitors using Strips during both cross-country and stadium phases.
Big congratulations to winner Tim Price and Coup de Coeur Dudevin on their victory in the CCI5*-L Division. Team FLAIR™ members had fantastic finishes in the top 5: Tamie Smith and Danito finished second and Phillip Dutton and Z finished fourth.
The 2022 USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Champions title went to Team FLAIR member Elisa Wallace and Renkum Corsair! Finishing in the top 15 as well were Phillip Dutton and Hachi and Lauren Nicholson and I’ll Have Another.
Achieve Equine is exceptionally proud of all the Team FLAIR members who competed at the event. Congratulations to these equine and human athletes, as well as all competitors, organizers, and volunteers who took part in and supported this event. We’re already looking forward to next year!
