Announcing the 10th Annual Fall
2020 “STAY SAFE” Hudson Valley Pace Series!

With many precautions in place and many changes in procedure the 6 independent groups will hold their events this year! It is imperative that participants pay close attention to the guidelines and changes.
DUE TO COVID-19 YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE (or mail in some cases) IN ADVANCE OF THESE EVENTS!
          Pay attention to individual CLOSING DATES for each event so as not to be locked out.
COVID-19 MEASURES WILL BE IN PLACE
Each group will have their own rules, but in general:

There will be a COVID-19 waiver to sign along with standard waivers.
Masks must be worn by everyone on the grounds while not mounted.
6 foot social distance must be maintained except by family members
.
          No congregating, no hanging around or socializing on site.
No spectators, except a parent of a minor participating and necessary drivers or grooms, etc.

          Minimal contact with secretary or other staff and volunteers.
STAY INFORMED
          Visit each group web site and/ or Facebook page for specific guidelines, updates and cancellations.       

Let’s make the 2020 Pace Season fun and enjoyable, but most of all SAFE for everyone!

This year we again have SIX Dutchess and Columbia County hunter paces in our series! Earn points for every pace you enter. The higher you place the more points you earn. Participate in at least 4 of our member paces and you automatically qualify for fabulous prizes and bragging rights. The more paces you enter, the greater chance you have to win. Points will be awarded to individual riders so you need not ride in the same team or the same division throughout the Series. (Hunt division will earn 1 to 20 pts.  Hilltoppers earn 1 to 10 pts. Points accumulate for Series prizes. Both Rombout Hunt and Old Chatham Hunt have a separate Junior division that competes for the same optimum time as First Flight/ Hunt. For the purposes of the pace series point allocation only- First Flight/Hunt and Junior results will be combined to determine Hunt Division points.)

2020 Hudson Valley Pace Series Standings:

Those who competed in 4 of the 6 paces will receive a pace series glass either at Locust Hill or Rombout.

 

*Important Note:
Tie-breaker determined first by greatest number of paces attended then by % difference from ideal times combined. For example if the current standings were the final standings the current 6 way tie for 4th place would be resolved by first eliminating the rider who did only 3 paces. For the other 5 riders their 4 pace differences would be totaled and the smallest difference would take the 4th place prize.
