Scheduled upon requestAre you looking to determine which MRC Rider Level you fall under with a trainers guidance? Are you looking to join us for your first hunter pace or foxhunt? An evaluation is a great way to get started!
In order to ensure you are properly prepared for rides and so we can match you with the right group of riders evaluations are a great idea. You will ride an experienced horse and get tips from a trainer on what to expect on MRC rides. You will walk, trot and canter in open space and possibly test out a few jumps depending on your current ability. The trainer will ride alongside you and this is a great time to ask any questions.
