  • Your entry fee and registration handled by MRC

HORSES
The horses are trailered from our training facility in Pawling. There are a variety of breeds with different personalities, trained for open space riding, foxhunting, hunter paces and used in our lessons. From spirited thoroughbreds to quieter draft breeds. 

SETTING
Just an hour from Manhattan this beautiful trail system boasts beautifully landscaped trails with a variety of jumps at various heights, stunning ponds, streams and an abundance of nature. Traverse through residents property and the GRTA open space as you walk, trot canter and gallop. 

LEVEL
Level 3, 4 and 5. Click here for level descriptions. Required: 2024 Instructor approval through a Lesson or Evaluation Ride.

This ride is best suited for independent riders who enjoy cross country riding and jumping. Riders must also be confident riding without a guide, this is important as you will be riding with 1-2 other MRC riders on a team and each rider is required to be independent and confident to handle any situations that may arise. Riders must also be able to adjust their tack, mount independently and have a high level of awareness for the 50+ other horses and riders that will be present. 

As teams are independent of a host on these rides, it is important that each rider knows when a horse is tired and needs a break, has sustained any injury or lost shoes and how to properly cool down after the ride. 

If you are a higher level rider and would like to ride a more challenging horse, be sure to identify this in your MRC Rider Profile.

Jumping is optional, heights range from 2 - 3 feet.

ATTIRE
2023 MRC Team Uniform- MRC Sun Shirt, tan or black breeches, clean boots, proper riding helmet, safety vest recommended. We will connect you to your team in advance so you can all coordinate your team uniform further if you want!

TRANSPORTATION
