Day one of the annual Stable View Oktoberfest is in the books. Today all FEI competitors completed the dressage portion of competition with the CCI4*-S and CCI3*-S divisions running in the Outdoor Arena and the CCI2*-s dressage in the Hunter Arena.
111 horses went down the centerline for the FEI divisions today, and Stable View's entries for the weekend total 369 across all divisions. According to Mark Weissbecker, Member of the CCI4*-S Ground Jury, "The overall quality of the horses was consistently excellent. The riders set a high standard and we were overall quite pleased.
