Event Details

Join us for a hunt, hilltop, or untimed pleasure ride through 8.5 miles of the gorgeous trails at Wethersfield. English & Western riders welcome. All jumps will have go-arounds. This year, there will be approximately 80 jumps, including many of our cross- country schooling jumps which will be part of the pace. All divisions can go out starting at 9:00 AM. The last Hunt & Hilltopper riders must be out by 12:00 noon. Any Pleasure riders that are concerned with the faster paced riders can ride later but no later than 12:30 PM. This event will be held rain or shine. Teams will go out on a first-come first-served basis. There are no set start times. Teams can be of mixed disciplines & ages, but there must be no more than 3 riders per team.

An average of all times will determine the winning time. First through 8th place ribbons will be given in both the hunt & hilltop divisions. This year, first prize for the hunt division is $250.00! First prize for the hilltopper division will be season passes to Wethersfield, valued at $175.00 each. Second place prizes will also be awarded, courtesy of Manning Saddle Restoration. 

Results will be posted on the Wethersfield website & Facebook page when they are ready.

This is the second pace of the Hudson Valley Pace Series, so come & join us & accumulate your points. Please email if you have questions on the pace series itself.
