About the Classic Three-Day Event
Historically, names include Jimmy Wofford, Karen O’Connor, Phyllis Dawson, Tremaine Cooper, Stephen Bradley, Colleen Rutledge, Sharon White, Natalie Hollis, John Williams, Danny Warrington, Kent Allen, Pam Wiedemann, Max Corcoran, Jan Bynny, Steph Kohr, Kelley Williams and many more who have all volunteered at this Classic 3 Day event! That’s right, this group of riders, former Olympians, World Championship team members, and upper-level professionals have coached, advised, and assisted at the Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event! Warmly termed the ‘Quarter Star’ and ‘Half Star’, this experience that combines education and competition continues to grow in popularity and support.
Held at Waredaca Farm in Laytonsville, MD, this “one of a kind” competition is in its 19th year at the beautiful family farm and eventing facility in the heart of Maryland’s horse country.
The 2023 Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event, complete with roads and tracks and steeplechase, takes place over four days – October 26-29. Food and beverages are provided throughout the experience. Educational seminars and demonstrations include proper horse inspection technique, cross country course walks, steeplechase practice session, conditioning and fitness seminars, and more. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to participate!
A special addition this year is including the Beginner Novice level! Plus, joining our lead clinician SHARON WHITE, everyone’s favorite, will be Woods Baughman!
Working together, they will assist competitors during the entire event AND offer many educational opportunities for those non-participants who volunteer and are interested in the Classic format. All seminars, course walks, and talks are open to all entered riders and grooms, support crew, volunteers, and so on.
And again this year, we are partnering with the Area 2 USEA Interscholastic Eventing League (IEL), expertly managed by Chris Donovan. Growing interest with the Young Riders over the past few years combined with the invaluable horsemanship experience this type of competition requires makes it an excellent fit!
Lots of sponsored prizes are given — check out our Awards page and be impressed!

Best wishes to you and the whole team. What a fantastic experience!
Words cannot express my gratitude for the experience of a lifetime.
in 30+ years! My horse (Emile/Entre les Etoiles) and I had a rather up-and-down year, but I really felt we were ready for the Three Day. And I guess we were since we won – it was our first (recognized) win in 5 seasons of competing!
I also wanted to thank the Kings, as sponsors of the Brown Betty Award, for the amazing prize pack. I’ve enclosed a photo of Emile in his beautiful new
quarter sheet – how perfect that it is in our color.
My plan is to move up to Modified/Prelim in 2023 and hopefully, we will be ready to tackle the Three Day again!
