New England Hunts Hunter Trials
October, 15th, Sunday Huntington Farm, South Strafford, Vermont
This prestigious competition has been held by the New England hunts since 1932, with the various hunts taking turns hosting the event. In 2023 Green Mountain Hounds will again be sharing the responsibility with North Country Hounds, and we’re pleased to be using one the regions’ premier eventing venues. While the Qualified Divisions (jumps ranging from 2’9” to 4’) are limited to active foxhunters riding their foxhunting horses, there is the same suite of Open Divisions available to everyone. Obstacles (20-25 of them) are of natural design such as might be found at a hunt. Hunt-specific challenges such a quick stop (Hold Hard), a quick exit (Gone Away), and opening and closing a fence will be included. Each obstacle is judged from the perspective of easy and smooth execution. Take advantage to ride this lovely venue with the friendliest people from all over New England.
