Stable View’s 6th Annual Oktoberfest, 4* Horse Trials

Join us for Stable View’s annual Oktoberfest (September 27-29, 2019). First run in 2014, each year the intention has been to broaden the appeal of this event as we have gained experience and confidence to take on new challenges. In 2016 we ran Aiken’s first Advanced HT, and in 2017 we added the Intermediate level. This year we are again raising Stable View’s profile by running the first FEI 4*competition in Aiken. We will be hosting CCI-S 2*, 3*, and 4* levels as well as Novice, Training, and Preliminary national levels. Prize money has been set at up to $80,000. Captain Mark Phillips (GBR) and Mogie Bearden-Muller (MD) will design the cross-country courses for this event. Eric Bull is our Course Builder again. Portions of the old course have been freshly sprigged with Celebration Bermuda for the highest quality footing. Chris Barnard (FL) will be designing Stadium for all of the levels.

The international levels will complete the dressage phase on Friday and then the jumping phases on Saturday. The national levels will run as a one-day event on Sunday.
