Black Friday Paper Chase
Friday, November 25, 2016
Come join us on Friday, November 25, 2016, for our Black Friday Paper Chase!
Entry fee is $25 per rider (cash or check only, please).
Riders will be leaving from our barn (64 Kennel Road, Elkton, MD), so please park at the top of the hill and walk down the road to our barn. There will be plenty of signs directing where to park.
Please remember your Coggins and red ribbons in the tails of any known kickers.
Attire is casual and any type of riding gear is acceptable - English, Western, Australian, Endurance, we're not particular.
While we cannon require participants to wear helmets, we strongly encourage their use.
Slowpokes ride from 10am to Noon
Daredevils ride from Noon to 2pm
Slowpoke pace is more laid back and relaxed and is usually a mix of walk/trot/canter.
Daredevil pace is faster, usually a mix of walk/trot/canter/gallop.
Please remember that the goal of a Paper Chase is to have your ride time come closest to the unknown ideal time. It's best to ride neither too fast, nor too slow, but appropriate for the footing and trail conditions. We calculate the ideal time as the average of all the times of the riders in each group, so there are separate ideal times for Slowpokes and Daredevils.
Our Fall Paper Chase is usually around 7-9 miles.
Please call the barn if you have any questions: 410-620-3883
