Viewed by many as the best hunter pace in the region. An exceptional variety of inviting and challenging jumps makes the Locust Hill course the most unusual in Dutchess County.
$500 Prize Fund*
8-10 mile full length course over beautiful countryside & many fences.
Festive atmosphere with excellent catered meal in all-weather tent.

The course will be approximately 8-10 miles through open rolling farmland and beautiful wooded trails. There will be approximately 50 fences, none exceeding 3’3”, and all with Go-Arounds for those not wishing to jump. There will be a halfway mandatory rest point. Teams may consist of 2, 3, or 4 riders. Hardhats with attached harness, signed release forms and negative Coggins within 12 months are required with entry. All entries must be accompanied by the entry fee. ($90 per rider paid by 10/24, $100 paid by 11/4, $110 day of pace)
