HUNTER PACES -- Dates for 2020 are April 5 - June 7 - August 2 and October 25. These shows start at a low level (Introductory) and go through Training level - so much fun for horses and riders of all levels! Traditionally, a hunter pace is a low-key competitive event derived from foxhunting. Our Hunter Paces provide a great opportunity to ride a mock cross country course in an inexpensive and non-pressured environment. We offer a wide range of levels including VERY elementary. We typically offer an option to take a lesson on Saturday to prepare for the Hunter Pace on Sunday, even those with no previous cross country experience can participate! We don't take ourselves too seriously and even dress up in costumes for our October event! For the .pdf printable form, click below:

Our all-weather footing insures that we are able to offer clinics and lessons year-round, including the wet months when many facilities are forced to close their XC courses. Our clinics this year will include unmounted activities or lectures and include breakfast and lunch for the March clinic. The May clinic will be completely catered and will include all instruction, mounted and unmounted plus ALL meals. See the "FORMS" page for the registration for the clinics.
BUSTER MCLAURY CLINIC: September 12-15th, 2020. A product of the big ranch country in West Texas, Buster McLaury brings a unique perspective to his clinics and demos. Having made his living cowboying on and managing big outfits all his life, Buster has started thousands of colts under saddle and worked with hundreds of thousands of cattle. His 40+ years around livestock has gained him a wealth of information, experience, and stories which he readily shares with others. Buster met and was heavily influenced by Ray Hunt early on, which shines through in his kind, quiet approach to helping horses. Click "Buster McLaury Info" below for a PDF with clinic details.
