Big, Bold & Beautiful: Take a Look Around the Stable View Spring CCI4* XC

Click the image above to explore the Stable View XC course.

This afternoon twenty-six competitors plan to leave the start box to face Capt. Mark Phillips’ CCI4*-S course here at Stable View. As we’ve come to expect at the premier Aiken facility, the grounds and the fences are exceptionally turned out.  The four-star pairs have 23 flagged obstacles for 35 total jumping efforts to look forward to. The track is wheeled at 3,880 meters with an optimum time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

The track follows its usual path for FEI events, with much of the action passing by the Pavilion where Stable View is for the first time offering 50 reserved tailgating spots. As owner Barry Olliff would say, Stable View was built by the community, for the community, and “Tailgating on the Turf” is another way Stable View is ‘A Gathering Place’ for anyone and everyone in Aiken.

The tailgaters will have a front row seat to several historically influential complexes including the Derby Field Alp, the Pavilion Splash and the Blanchard Corners combination at 19abc, which earned several close looks during rider’s course walks yesterday.

The CCI3*-S and Advanced classes will also run cross country today. Click the images below to see what they have in store.



The first four-star horse leaves the box at 12:06 p.m.
