Don't want to sidetrack Hidalgo's thread, but am very curious as to what kind of Hunter Paces you all have in your areas.

In my area, the Hunter Pace is a timed event, sort of like a poker run. You're given a description of a *foxhunt* - following the descriptions, you pick up poker chips at each checkpoint. Closest to ideal time, usually set by hunt staff, wins. It's supposed to be a test of your knowledge of the hunting territory and feel for pace. Really nothing like xc at an event, but a boat load of fun.

We also have Hunter Trials, as distinct from Horse Trials. Hunter Trials are held in a large open area over natural obstacles, and are like a shortened xc course, but are judged subjectively, on jumping form, manners, style and suitability to be a field hunter.

That's really cool. Especially the Hunter Trials. If I ever see that at a show I'll definitely sign up for it. :)

Ours is very similar to a long cross country course...they give you a map and number the jumps and they don't tell you what the optimum time is but you have to get as close as possible to what you think it is :) they time your team and closest team to the optimum time wins and placings go out from there :)
