Hunter Paces are a blast!
Usually consists of a team of 2 to 3, and yes...your main goal is to finish your ride at the "ideal time" meaning....a rider of the facility will go out and ride the day before and time their ride, could be 20 minutes, could be 3 hours....no one knows!
I've been on many, and I thoroughly enjoy them. Yes, they are pretty much a "Trail Ride", you can ride as though you are out on a Fox Hunt, or as though you are in an Endurance Race, or just an out and about trail ride - the choice is up to you and your team.
We get all sorts of riders on our Hunter Paces, ranging from experienced Fox Hunters to Eventers to Trail Riders to Western Gamers and so on and so on.
My advice, just go and have fun! It's not competative, it is about just enjoying the trails, the company and your horse.
