Come enjoy a day in the Hillsboro Hounds hunt country. Paces will be ridden in pairs through the countryside, vying for an ideal time appropriate for each division of the team’s choice. Ideal times will be set by field masters. Riders on each team must enter the same division. Put together a pair of riders and select the division that best suits. Each entry must submit an entry form, sign a release, and obtain a ride time at registration before riding.
You are encouraged to plan your ride time ahead by contacting Stephanie at the email address below.
