Join the club for a fun-filled day of riding over some of the beautiful trails of the North Country Hounds Hunt Club
. The North Country Hounds 12th Annual Hunter Pace
is open to the public. Teams of two or three riders will leave at three-minute intervals and cover a course of approximately 5 to 7 miles with hunt jumps. The course will be well marked. All the jumps will have Go-Arounds.
There will be two divisions: Hunting and Hacking. Riders must be part of a 2 or 3 member team. The NCH Masters of Fox Hounds will ride the course to establish the correct hunt time. Winners of the Hunting Pace will be the team whose time most closely matches the time set by the Masters. The Hacking Pace will be based on the hunting time, but slower. Ribbons will be awarded to each of the top eight teams.
Please arrive between 8:30 am and 10:30 am on Saturday to pick up information packets, sign releases if not submitted in advance, and receive your departure time.
No horses may be unloaded without a current Coggins Test. Please note that the deadline for signing up is 10:30 am with the last team leaving around 11:00 am.
NO LATE ARRIVALS, PLEASE.
ASTM/SEI-approved hard hat is required when mounted.
