that's a good idea wren, but I know there's no way we could do that here. Our courses are hard (often 20 - 50 jumps a course - a LOT!) over hilly rocky terrain and we ride open which is a true foxhunt pace which means nearly no walking at all. My horse is on a 16p feed (in combination with a 12p and high fat feed) to keep his protein levels up for the amount of muslce mass he uses each pace during heavy season and our paces are usually 12 miles long or so. About 1h 30m - 2h for open division so certainly a lot of speed and work there.

Jealous that you get to go twice!!! It sounds like a great idea!

Wow! That sounds like an awesome pace!
Ours are usually 5-8 miles. We have three paces you can choose from to simulate hilltoppers, 2nd field, and first field. So the hilltoppers go later and mostly walk and trot. The medium pace is mostly trotting and some cantering, and the first flight is like a true hunt field, mostly cantering and galloping. There are a good number of jumps, usually around 30 or so.
I love them. I also feel lucky because the girl I ride with knows the owners of the one fixture. So we go out and school out there all the time when the weather is nice.
BUT, I don't think there are any 3'6 ones out there. I think they max out right around 3.
We'll just have to get you a helmet cam!

haha our paces are insane. Even my vet does the go rounds on a lot of the jumps but my horse takes all of them so yeah by the time we're done it's a good 1h30m at LEAST of solid hand gallop and hill work. Little trotting in the windy/wooded areas, and walk along any roads and that's it. It's really crazy but fun haha. They had an "easy faster pace" last year with less hills and the open times were coming in at 1:15 - 1:30!!! I was like um that's short?! Lol

Anyone who is within trailering distance to me (warwick, ny area is where the paces are) I HIGHLY recommend it! Join us!!!
