Get Your Season Up and Running at Stable View Farm

As eventers, all of our experiences during the past couple months of lockdown have been different. Some of us haven’t gotten to ride much at all, if any, due to Covid-19 restrictions. Others have been letting up on fitness but doubling down on their “homework,” making the most of the break to refocus on the basics. Irregardless, we’ve all got a bit of rust to scrape off as we gear up to make a return to our sport.

Stable View Farm in Aiken, SC, has endured a ruthless 2020 thus far. Between tornadoes ripping through the venue in February and the cancellation of much of its spring season due to Covid-19, including its hotly anticipated March FEI event, the venue has been in crisis management mode for much of the year. Yet, they’ve dazzled us with their ability to adapt and innovate, from their “Show Must Go On” mentality in the aftermath of the tornadoes to their creation of a Virtual Dressage Show series to keep riders motivated and improving in the absence of a spring show season .

Now, in recognition of our community’s need for opportunities to rev our engines in advance of recognized events, Stable View is offering yet another incredible resource: a series of late spring and summer shows, both schooling and recognized, to get you and your horse back in the swing of things. From dressage shows to Eventing Academy events, hunter/jumper rounds to cross country schooling days and even a hunter pace, Stable View’s calendar offers a number of avenues for tuned up in all three phases.

Yesterday, Stable View kicked off its reopening with a Schooling Dressage Show that was well supported. This weekend’s Eventing Academy has record entries. We expect the warm reception to continue. Stable View’s first recognized event, its Summer Horse Trial, takes place June 19-21 and will feature Beginner Novice through Advanced divisions.

Stable View is leading the way as an exemplary example of an event that is being conscientious of the current environment (view Stable View Farm’s social distancing guidelines here) and also sensitive to the plight of competitors in these uncertain times, generously offering a full refund should their June USEA horse trials get canceled for any reason.

“We’re on our way!” says Stable View owner Barry Olliff. Indeed. See below a roster of upcoming events from May through August 2020.
