Lyme Hunter Pace at Lord Creek Farm

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Rain date:  Sunday, September 21, 2014

Come and enjoy the trails at Lord Creek Farm.  A Hunter Pace is a low key competitive event derived from foxhunting. Teams of two or three riders follow a marked and timed course up to 9 miles to include 2-3’ jumps; riders may go over OR around all fences. Teams follow a course over terrain which is meant to stimulate that of a foxhunt-requiring a mixture of gaits that a foxhunter would typically utilize.

Riders will have a choice of competing in one of two divisions: Hunter (a faster pace designed to imitate that of a fox hunt for experienced riders) and Hilltopper (a more leisurely pace than Hunter-about 25% slower, for the novice rider and/or horse).

The Lyme Hunter Pace prides itself on offering a low-key atmosphere for riders to learn and practice their skills in a competitive and supportive environment. Come enjoy the spectacular views of the Connecticut River Valley from Lord Creek Farms.

CHECKPOINT:  Riders must check in for a mandatory 3 minute hold at the half-way mark.

Don’t forget to enjoy a chili lunch before or after your ride!  Provided by our local Connecticut Valley Pony Club.
