Norfolk Hunter Pace
On Sunday June 3, 2018 our annual Norfolk Hunter Pace starts at a new location, The Norfolk Hunt Club Exercise Field, 180 Centre Street, Dover, MA, The Pace will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the last rider out at 12:00 p.m. noon.
Come for a beautiful 8 mile + ride through Norfolks beautiful territory of open fields and wooded trails in Dover and Medfield, some of which are not usually available to the general riding community.
Teams of two or three riders compete in one of three divisions: first flight (jumping), second flight (flats) and hilltoppers (slower pace flats). All divisions encounter inviting fences and stone walls not to exceed 3' 6" in height. A way around all obstacles is available to all riders. Riders in all divisions could go around jumps at their own discretion. ** Please note that riders under the age of 16 years-old must have an adult rider on their team**
The teams finishing closest to the pre-determined optimum time are awarded blue ribbons. Additional ribbons will be given to the other 9 top finishing teams in each division.
Entry fee of $60 per adult rider and $50 per junior (under 18) rider. All riders must sign a Liability Waiver. All riders must wear helmets. Lunch is included. Spectators may purchase lunch on the grounds. There is no water available for horses in the exercise field, so please bring water containers.
