The Hunter Trials have been rescheduled to Sunday November 21

Come join us for our annual Tanheath Hunt Club Hunter Trials. This event will take place at a new venue for us: The Connecticut Equestrian Center in Coventry CT. Questions about attire? Hunt Attire

Brush up on your Hunting Etiquette and terminology! This year we will be focusing on rider Technique and  Execution of obstacles throughout the beautiful trail leading to the jump field where you will have to navigate select jumps. All the jumps have 3 different heights depending on the division you are in. Riders will be asked to perform a variety of maneuvers such as “Hold Hard”, “Gone Away”, “Ware Staff”. Judgement will be on how well you execute maneuvers. In the jump field you will be judged on overall performance.

Potluck lunch to follow so please bring something to share
