Stable View’s new March date (March 27-28, 2020) between The Carolinas (March 21-22) and The Fork (April 4-5), and four weeks prior to Kentucky will be based on the formula used for their recent successful Oktoberfest event. While they will only be offering levels 1*, 2*, 3* and 4*, the uncluttered tracks and all weather surface should be popular for competing horses at this time of year.

Prize money will be $50,000 split on a sliding scale between the four Divisions ($20,000, $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000). Entry Fees will also be on a sliding scale ($425, $400, $375 and $350).There are no additional ground fees at Stable View. Entries will be limited to 55 per Division, so mark your calendars for opening day on February 11th.

The Cross Country Courses will be designed by Captain Mark Phillips and Mogie Bearden Muller. According to Mark Phillips, the courses will feature “a completely new cross country track without using any of the lower ground in the Academy Field. Hopefully horses and riders will enjoy this new experience on the flatter, more open galloping ground, over courses that still have their focus in front of Stable View’s impressive Pavilion.” Stadium will be designed by Chris Barnard (FL) and will be held on Attwood Equestrian Surfaces footing.

Four Rider Lounges will be in use including the new Executive Lounge, which will be positioned between the two banks of Stalls. The new Executive Lounge will be available to all competing riders and offer coffee, a light breakfast, fruit, snacks and water and a place to have meetings and relax during the day. In addition, the rider lounges offer toilets, a washing machine, and a dryer.

The Designer Builders Stable View Spring CCI will be supporting Brooke USA at lunchtime on Saturday in The Pavilion. On Friday the Pavilion will be open for VIP’s, Owners and Sponsors with a cash bar. Following the Dressage phase of competition on Friday, there will be a “Dinner with the Stars” with dinner and live music. Competitors will receive two free tickets, and tickets will be available to the general public for $50 each (must be purchased in advance) and will include two drinks.

The Boyd Martin, ETB Schooling Field at Stable View will be open during the entire Season (January through March) apart from during Stable View events to help upper level riders prepare their horses for the event.
