2019 Hunter Paces
Winding through 5-6 miles of countryside Barton Valley Farm has one of the most fun and beautiful hunter pace courses. Open fields, and well trimmed wooded trails are loaded with over 60 jumps varying in sizes and styles from a 18" stone wall, to a 3' round bale, and everything in between. Of course even though there are awards the hunter pace is strictly for fun and all obstacles are optional. All disciplines of riders are invited to come and ride the trails which are groomed, marked, and maintained for your safety. Again all obstacles are optional, many people do not participate in hunter paces because they think they are only for people that jump; wrong, every jump has a wide option to go around it. Please join us this fall, we love to see you all.
