What is a Hunter Pace?

You and your partner(s) ride a flagged cross country course on the most beautiful land this side of the Ocala National Forest. You may watch eagles & hawks soar, deer seek cover, wild boar rustling through the underbrush and maybe even find yourself on the trail of the ever elusive fox!

Contrary to what you may have heard, the hunter pace is NOT a race!

The teams arriving closest to the ideal hunter pace time (a secretly kept time) are the winners.
