NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE HOSTING A HUNTER PACE IN 2017 - LOOK FOR US IN 2018!

A hunter pace is a marked trail ride covering, on average, eight miles of beautiful Sherborn trails. This course is usually ridden in teams of two or three riders and timed. The team with the time closest to the optimum (average) time wins. There is a hunting pace division for those wishing to move along quicker on the course, and there is hilltop division for those who prefer to go at a more leisurely pace. We also offer team prizes for those who feel like dressing up in whatever strikes their fancy, this years categories are: Most coordinated, Most seasonal, Most original.

The purpose of our hunter pace is to introduce riders to the beautiful trail systems Sherborn has to offer and to raise funds for the association. These funds are used to support the activities of the association. Some of the activities include trail maintenance, education, and assistance in purchasing and maintaining open space and access easements for all of us.

The association uses public lands much of the time, but through the very generous support of private landowners, some of the route passes over private land which is only open to riders for the day of the Event and makes the hunter pace very special. The parking of horse trailers can always make it a bit harder, so we strongly suggest entries to pre-enter to ensure space for the riders and their vehicles.

Our hunter pace is always very popular for its scenic trails and good food! Association members provide home baked goods, some of which have become traditional favorites, with a selection of warm drinks and great food.  We encourage all association members and all Sherborn citizens to come out and enjoy the day with us.
