Nature at its finest with picturesque countryside of rolling farmland, meadows woodlands,stonewalls and streams. It is in this sporting country life setting that the New England Hunts Championship Hunter Trials will be held on October 26, 2014. Hunter Trials are a competition between member riders, who foxhunt regularly with their registered or recognized New England hunt. It is a cross-country ride, 2 – 3 miles long, judged by way of going and maneuvering over hunt obstacles.
