Come join us Friday, November 24, 2017, for our Black Friday Paper Chase!!
Entry fee is $35 per rider (cash or check only, please).
Riders will be leaving out of our barn (64 Kennel Road, Elkton, MD), so please park at the Race Barns and walk down to our barn to register and ride out. There will be plenty of signs directing you 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 cannot require participants to wear helmets, we strongly encourage their use.
Slowpokes ride from 10am to Noon
Daredevils ride from Noon to 2pm - no riders will be sent out after 2pm
Slowpoke pace is more laid back and relaxed and is usually a mix of walk, trot and canter.
Daredevill pace is faster, usually a mix of walk, trot, canter and 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 times of the riders in each group, so there are separate ideal times for Slowpokes and Daredevils.
Our Fall Paper Chases are usually around 8 to 10 miles. I do not know if there will be any jumps on the trail, as I have not yet planned the route.
Rain date is Saturday, November 25, 2017.
Please call the barn if you have any questions: 410-620-3883
