The Main Ring and the Obstacle Ring are natural grass rings. Their rolling topography is typical of the country pleasure show that we strive to depict. In order to qualify for championships, competitors should enter the following classes for their respective division:
-Town & Country Obstacles -
-Pick Your Route Obstacles
-House Rules Pleasure Drive-Pace
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.
RETURNING FOR 2022 Competitors will be permitted to use, at their discretion, an alternate vehicle for the pleasure drive. This alternate vehicle must conform to traditional type and design. The use of alternate vehicle must be indicated on the entryblank at time of entry. Absolutely NO marathon/utility type vehicles will be permitted to be named as alternate vehicle. Any competitors wishing to compete with a marathon/utility vehicle are instructed to enter the UtilityDivision. Decisions regarding alternate vehicles will be at the management’s discretion.
