MVH Hunter Paces


MVH hunter paces are a great, lightly competitive trail ride that simulates riding to the hounds. Over the course of the event riders will cross a variety of terrain including woods, hills, open fields, and creek crossings.  There are a number of jumps and obstacles throughout the course, but all are completely optional. Western and English tack welcome!

Ribbons for teams in 1st - 6th place.  Series Championship ribbons awarded after the completion of the Labor Day Pace.


Huntsman’s Pace: Approx. 10 mph, fast.

To be ridden in groups of 2-3. 

First Field: Approx. 7 mph, medium. 

To be ridden in groups of 2-3

Hill Topper: Approx. 4 mph, leisurely.

To be ridden in groups of 2-3. 

Directions to Thornhill: Thornhill Farm, 513 N Ludlow Rd, Urbana OH 43078

BIG RIGS: If you have a trailer longer than a 3-horse slant, you cannot enter Thornhill from the south.  It is highly recommended that you approach the driveway from the NORTH as the angle is much easier than from the south.  If your path to Thornhill is form the east, south or west and you are approaching the driveway while heading north on Ludlow Rd, you can PASS the driveway and continue traveling approx. ¾ of a mile to the church on the right hand side of the road.   Use their parking lot to turn around and come on back!  There is also a subdivision just past the church that can also be used as a turn around.


Entry Fees & Payments:

$35 per rider 

$15 per rider for second rounds

Payments can be made with:

    cash or check the day of the event

*There is usually at least one professional photographer on course to help capture the fun and excitement!
