Cross View opens 2016 horse show series

The Cross View Horse Show series opened Friday night at Green Hill Park Equestrian Center in Salem with a special jumpers edition, which then rolled into Saturday’s Hunter/Jumper show.

Despite rains that fell overnight, the show had a nice turnout with about four to five riders  in the morning hunter divisions. More horses began to mill about the show grounds at lunchtime for the afternoon divisions, and by then the sun was shining and the temperatures were warming.

The arenas seemed to actually benefit from the overnight rains. While there were puddles here and there, the wet weather kept the sometimes-hard Green Hill Park footing softer than on a typical day.

The show continues Sunday with an Open horse show that includes classes for hunters, gaited, western, ranch and more.
