Lord Stirling Stable is hosting the Fall Private Horse Hunter Pace on Sunday, September 8 beginning at 9:00 am with the last team departing by 1:00 pm. Lord Stirling Stable is located at 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge and the Hunter Pace is sponsored by Horsemen’s Outlet of Lebanon.
Teams of two to three riders are invited to follow a well-marked course that is six to eight miles in length. There are usually more than 30 fences, which are up to three feet in height. Fences that are two-feet and six inches and higher are identified with a cone, and there is a way around each fence.
Teams may choose to enter one of five divisions: Open, Family, Junior, Senior or Hilltopper. Specifications are posted on the Friends of Lord Stirling Stable’s website at www.flss.org. Ribbons are awarded to the first six teams in each division finishing closest to the “ideal time” set by the Pace Team.
Registration is done in person on the day of the event. Entry fee is $35.00 for juniors (under 18) and $40.00 for adults. A separate check or cash in the amount of $5.00 per team is required to obtain a pinney with the team number, and will be refunded upon return of the pinney. Light refreshments will be available.
An approved ASTM/SEI certified riding helmet and riding shoes or boots are mandatory for all participants. All riders must provide a negative Coggins taken within the past 12 months when registering. Dogs are welcome, but must be leashed at all times. No alcoholic beverages are permitted on Park property.
