The Hunter Pace will benefit the Hounds of the

 OAK RIDGE FOX HUNT CLUB

The members of Oak Ridge are planning a wonderful course that will

allow you to enjoy the beautiful countryside at Tea Time Farm.  The course is approximately 6-8 miles with

the opportunity for fast and slow teams with many jumping efforts.

There are go-arounds for those who wish not to jump.

Divisions:
First Flight / Full Cry:  For those seeking a very fast pace and the thrill of what fox hunting is really like. Jumps not exceeding 3′, winner will be based on the average time.

Second Flight:  For riders who enjoy a challenging ride. Jumps are optional.  Winner will be based on the average time.

Hill Topper: A relaxed and leisurely stroll through our hunt country.   No jumps. Winner will be based on the average time.

Each division is designed to closely match the excitement of a Foxhunt.  Teams may consist of two or more riders but there will only be two ribbons per team.

Times:  Ride start times are between 9:00AM to 12 Noon.

Full cry and fast riders are encouraged to start closer to the 9am start time for the best jumping conditions.

Fees:  $40.00 per adult rider & $25.00 per junior (under 18) rider.  Make checks payable to Oak Ridge Fox Hunt Club.Click here for
