Teams of two or three competitors will ride a well-marked course approximately 6 - 8 miles in length designed for those horses still being brought back into condition after their winter break. Thirty to 40 fences vary in height up to three feet. All jumps have ample room to go around for riders who prefer to stay on the flat, making the course very friendly to green horses. Western riders are encouraged to participate.
These events include five divisions: Open, Senior, Junior, Hilltopper, and Family. Ribbons are awarded to the six teams in each division that finish the course closest to the "ideal time" set by the Pace Team. Participants may register between 9am - 1pm. All riders must wear an ASTM/SEI approved equestrian helmet. There is ample parking for trailers. These events are co-sponsored by the Somerset County Park Commission and the Friends of Lord Stirling Stable.
