Hunter Paces are typically W/T/C and no more then a few miles. If your horse is in normal trail condition, he'll do fine.
My normal rule of thumb when I used to compete was to trot up hills, walk down hills, and trot/jog the flats. The last time I competed (many years ago) my team came within 3 seconds of the ideal - really a matter of luck rather then skill for the most part.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
