The Aiken Opener is the first recognized horse trials of the year at Stable View. Come and compete over inviting cross-country courses designed by Mogie Bearden-Muller on the beautiful, green winter rye grass. The cross-country track is well established, irrigated and aerated turf with Bermuda and Celebration grasses on slightly rolling sandy loam soil. Our courses have been designed as early season courses.

Since last winter, Stable View has added a new arena with Attwood Equestrian Surfaces footing, a wash rack, and 100 new matted 12′ x 12′ well-lit stalls. Stabling is offered for $75 per night, with limited accommodations and RV spaces also available. Shavings are discounted to $6 per bag if purchased by the closing date.
