2018 SOUTH CREEK FOXHOUNDS HUNTER TRIALS
Held on March 10, 2018
at Ridge Point Stables

The South Creek Foxhounds Hunter Trials is an annual event that is open to all English riders, non-hunt members, South Creek members and members of other hunts, with classes for just about everyone!
The goal of the Trials is to demonstrate your horse’s suitability for the hunt field. Horses are judged at each obstacle based on their form and style of jumping, their manners and way of going, and their obedience and efficient execution of class tests.
The Hunter Trials is a fund raiser, used to raise money for the maintenance of the hunt fixtures and the care of the hounds. Join us on horse back or on foot to support your fellow riders. If you are unable to attend our Hunter Trials, please consider making a donation in your absence.
