Stable View Announces the 21 Challenge Series For Young Riders!
Barry & Cyndy Olliff, owners of Stable View, recognize that the sport of Eventing must be supported through the developing generation in order to grow. Stable View has partnered with Fair Hill International and Plantation Field Horse Trials to offer an unprecedented award to top Young Riders! Beginning at their March 21st & 22nd 2017 Horse Trials, Stable View will kick off the 21 Challenge Series at their event before riders head north for the remainder of the spring season.
Targeting Young Riders at the Preliminary and 1* level, competitors will vie for the top cumulative results and must attend at least two of the 3 events, which includes Fair Hill International’s April Horse Trials and Plantation Field’s May Horse Trials. To be eligible for a series award, riders must attend the kick-off event in March 2017 at Stable View.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three competitors and will include up to one month’s free board, use of all the facilities’ equestrian amenities, apartment accommodations on-site and training sessions at Stable View during the 2018 winter season. Training sessions for each young rider will be arranged with resident Olympians or top clinicians who will be in Aiken for that season.
Carla Geiersbach, Executive Director at Fair Hill International, is very excited to see a “student friendly series” which will give that age group exposure to international level riders. “By targeting the Preliminary and 1* level competitors, we will work together to help the next generation of the sport. That is the time in life (during high school and college) when young people are determining their path.”
Mary Coldren, organizer of Plantation Field Equestrian Events, is especially happy to see Stable View spearhead this effort for the 21 Challenge Series, “We are excited to work with Stable View to encourage and support the young riders in the sport and to give them this opportunity!”
