Introducing ‘Tailgate on the Turf’ & Other Notes for the Stable View Spring 2/3/4*

Photo by Shelby Allen.

We here at EN are big fans of tailgating — watching the action at close range with a drink in hand and buffet of snacks within reach is second only to being in the saddle ourselves. With that in mind, Stable View is for the first time devoting areas at the perimeter of its Pavilion to 50 reserved tailgate spots for its big spring event in Aiken, SC (April 1-3, 2022).

Tickets for “Tailgate on the Turf” will go on sale soon, so keep an eye on Stable View’s email and social media (Facebook, Instagram). We’ll be bringing you all the latest previews of Stable View’s Spring 2/3/4* event, for which entries are still open through March 15. Entry info here! Only 350 entries will be accepted; others will be placed on a waiting list.
