The national levels took the spotlight for the final day of competition at Oktoberfest. The Beginner Novice, Novice, and Training divisions completed their show jumping over Chris Barnard's course in the Outdoor Arena, and competition concluded with Preliminary, Intermediate, Beginner Novice, and Training cross-country.

Each level received $1,000 in reallocated prize money from the canceled CCI*-S. Thus, 29 national riders received a portion of the prize money. Dr. Cynthia Browne sponsored bonus awards for the Thoroughbred closest to optimum time in the Novice and Beginner Novice divisions. Amy Cobb and Swift Journey won the $250 cash bonus for the Novice, and Madison King and Happy Hour won for the Beginner Novice level.

Myron Langer, one of Stable View's loyal volunteers, donated the Amanda Bader Memorial award to the lowest dressage score of the whole event. This award was given in memory of Bader, who passed in 2007 as a result of a cross-country injury. Jenny Caras won this $300 award aboard Trendy Fernhill with a 21.40 dressage score.

Conformation Critique with Chris Ryan: Prince’s Stone

Chris Ryan’s initial assessment of this 3-year-old off-the-track Thoroughbred gelding is that he’s a “good quality sort. Brown is a great color – a strong color in ‘nature.’ One of the first questions I ask myself when evaluating a horse is if he has refinement. We know the breed type here is Thoroughbred but I still ask the question."
