Lots of Hunter Paces lately!
Welcome to the forum :) Nice to have you on board.
Hunter Paces are just a fun trail ride, where you are timed.
What it is, is that you have a team of 2 riders to 3, and you head out on the marked trails and ride at your own pace. You have the option to jump fences if you choose, or just go around them if you choose.
The team who comes in at the optimal time, wins.
A rider goes out and rides the marked trails the day before, and is timed while they are out there, and that is the time set for all the riders the day of the Hunters Pace. No one knows what the time is.
At the end, there are prizes for the team who comes in closest to that optimal time, for the team who comes in the fastes and the team who comes in the slowest.
There are usually food and drinks at the end, with lots of great laughs and peope to share it with.
Enjoy and have fun!
