The Licking County Park District has cancelled their July 11th Pace at Infirmary Mound. RFHH decided to run a second pace at Spring Hill on that date. The pace will be modified and won’t be the same as the June Pace. Results will count toward pace awards.

Ribbons are awarded to the top eight teams riding each pace. Come early and ride twice! Below are the division speeds and start times:
- First Flight 10 mph is for the most aggressive riders, and mimics hunting first field. Average speed is a slow gallop with occasional breathers. These riders start on course in the first half-hour between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m so they won’t be passing slower riders.
- Second Flight 7 mph is for moderate riders, like hunting second field. Most riders trot and canter interspersed with short walks. Note, you will be sharing the course with slower riders, and, for safety, we ask that you slow to the walk or slow trot and ask permission to pass.
- Scenic Cruisers at 4 mph is like our hilltopping third field. Average speed is a brisk walk with an occasional trot. Expect to be passed by faster teams and, where possible, you should move to the side and turn your horse’s head to face the other horses in a hunting maneuver called “making way”.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2020
