Riders will be split into two groups. There will be a First Field, which will consist of riders who are cantering and jumping under control. The jumps will not exceed 3’3”. The non-jumping group, the Second Field, will be for riders who are trotting and cantering under control. You may also participate as a Foot Follower, for those who come without horses and wish to experience the fun from a different perspective.
The clinic begins at 7:30am with registration. Riders are requested to be ready with their mounts at 8:00 for an introduction to the events. The mounted clinic will ride out at approximately 8:15. Casual attire, hard hat with harness, and riding boots are required.
The Potomac Hunt will provide brunch following the mounted activities. During this time there is a discussion of the morning’s hunt with stories and recollections by hunt members on their experiences in the field! A demonstration of hunt attire will be provided, and there will be time for questions.
