-Town & Country Obstacles
-Pick Your Route Obstacles
A note about the Pleasure Drive-Pace: This is a completely off-road pace that provides the competitors with the opportunity to experience the beauty of the surrounding lands while challenging themselves to arrive at the finish as close to the ideal time as possible. The nature of the course is appropriate for carriages of all types from antique to marathon-type.
