Greenwich Hunter Pace
Join us for our first hunter pace in Connecticut on the stunning GRTA Trails! We are so thrilled to join this pace for the fist time and experience another beautiful trail system with wooded paths, open fields and jumps! The jumps consist of natural fences, stone walls, logs and coops. This trail system is not far from the Greenwich Polo Club and easily accessed by train from NYC.
About the GRTA:
At the turn of the 20th century, a group of Greenwich land owners and riders began to work together with developers and the Town of Greenwich to maintain and preserve some of the original trails in the area, trails that had been created by the local Native Americans and then by the early settlers, while also building some new trails. In 1914, seven landowners formed the Greenwich Trails Association and in 1953, it became the Greenwich Riding and Trails Association, a chartered nonprofit.
The goal of the GRTA was to instill in riders, landowners and the community, respect for the long tradition of horses and trails in Greenwich. This historic trail system holds together the mosaic of green space throughout Greenwich. These trails are interwoven across private properties, town roads, open spaces and public parks. This organization has been responsible for the upkeep and preservation of these trails in times past and will continue doing so for future generations.
