Ribbons will be awarded to 1st place prizes through 6th place for each division. Many prizes will be given out.
Entry Fees: $40 each adult; $25 each junior (under 16).

Details: Entry forms must be submitted with fees, negative Coggins and waivers. You may download the entry form and waivers (see links above) or sign them when you register on the day of the ride.
A hunter pace is ridden on a marked cross country course designed to imitate the conditions and terrain found on a foxhunt. Riders go out in small groups of 2-4 people in a staggered start system between 12pm and 2pm. The pace is a timed event, but it is not a race. Winners in each division will be determined by which riders come closest to the secret optimum time.
Food and drinks will be available.
Dogs are NOT permitted.
