What Is A Hunter  Pace?

  • The improvement of horsemanship

  • Riding safety

  • Physical development of horse & rider

  • The sport of riding to hounds

  • The preservation & conservation of open lands

  • Humane treatment of all animals

 

 

Jumping:

To follow a well marked course approx. 5 miles in length at a safe (trot & canter) hunting pace as if hounds were running a line on the scent of a fox. Coops & natural obstacles; not to exceed 3 ft. All coops & obstacles must be jumped in order & only after the third refusal may proceed around.

 

Non-Jumping:

To follow jumping course with ways around jumps. May jump any obstacle once.

 

Trail Riders

To follow much of the same sourse at a leisurely trail riding pace as if following the hunt before the hounds find the scent of the fox.
