Westport Hunter Pace
September 22, 2013
The Norfolk Hunt Club is pleased to announce date of Sunday September 22, 2013 for its fifth Westport Hunter Pace. Located at the corner of Horseneck Road and Fisherville Lane in Westport, MA, the Pace will begin at 8am. Last rider out will be at 1pm.
As in past years, the hunter pace course will offer 8 to 10 miles of terrain through open fields and wooded trails, most of which is usually not available to the general riding community. Spectacular views of the Westport River and historic farms may be enjoyed throughout the ride.
Teams of two or three riders (participants under the age of 16 years-old must have an adult rider on their team) will compete in one of two divisions: jumping or flats. The jumping division will encounter 20 or more inviting fences and stone walls not to exceed 3 feet in height. A way around all obstacles will be available to all riders.
The jumping and flats teams finishing closest to the pre-determined optimum time will be awarded blue ribbons. Ribbons will be given to the other 9 top finishing teams in each division.
Entry fee is $70 the day of the event, $60 paid in advance. Lunch is included. Spectators may purchase lunch on the grounds. Proceeds are used to support land conservation efforts in Westport as well as in the Charles River Watershed.
Last year's pace was an enormous success... Blue skies, light winds and safe footing were enjoyed by more than 150 riders. Mark your calendar for September 22nd to enjoy the best of riding opportunities in southeastern Massachusetts.
