Maryland Event: Loch Moy Farm


per, but also needs to provide prize money and live streaming. “We need sponsorships for all of that,” she said. “It really would be a cool sum- mer international experience and a great spec- tator event but we need good prize money to attract the competitors and sponsors to afford what the FEI requires.” Currently, the Maryland International holds


CCIs at the one-star through three-star levels during Loch Moy’s July event. Mackintosh typically holds parties in various viewing areas for spectators, riders and sponsors but had to cut all of that in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We can now have spectators again but we are keeping things small because of the Olympic mandatory outing at Great Meadow the same weekend,” she explained.


Post Pandemic


Although the pandemic is far from over, Mary- land and many other parts of the country have finally fully opened for business! Te biggest change for Mackintosh this year is being able to welcome back volunteers with social events. “So many of my volunteers are serial volunteers, I love it!” she said, adding, “I’m so glad we can do our volunteer get-togethers after the events again.

Thank you for all you do!


celed in 2020, Loch Moy is back to its full schedule with three USEA-sanctioned events, the Maryland International CCIs, and six starter events on the 2021 calendar. Loch Moy is also the host of the USEA Area II champi- onships again this year, which will be held dur- ing its October USEA event. But that is just eventing! Twilight events are


scheduled throughout the spring and summer, which Mackintosh reports have been “packed!” “Te twilights are so good for young riders and horses,” she added. Te farm has already held USDF-sanctioned dressage shows with two more on the schedule for August. In addition, there are schooling dressage jackpot jumper shows and clinics


shows,


scheduled throughout the remainder of 2021. Tis year’s December Donation Derby will be benefiting the Carroll Manor Fire Company, which is the company that longtime volunteer and show EMT Mike Smallwood belongs to. Te USEA Future Event Horse East Coast Championships will take place at Loch Moy in September with several qualifiers being held in the months leading up to the finals. And if Mackintosh is granted a four-star for 2024, it would make Loch Moy one of the only fa- cilities in Maryland to offer competitions from yearlings to Advanced in the sport of eventing. Stay tuned!
