Hunter Pace Results and News

Posted by Andrew on September 10, 2013

Hunter pace 1  was 4583 meters, close to 3 miles.

Hunter pace 2 will likely be longer and have update speeds:

  • Jump division will be 260 meter/min
  • Flat will be 200 meters/ min
  • Pleasure will be 160 meters per min

Jump is designed to canter fences and trot in between, flat is trot, canter and some walk breaks, and pleasure is walking and trotting.  plenty of time to check your maps.  The course is well marked, you can bring your maps. 

If people can get their entries to Wendy by Thursday, they can request an approximate time to ride between 11 and 1:30.  Times will be up on the scoreboard and maybe the website by Saturday. 

No official course walk but maps will be out there posted Saturday.  Wendy will try to be there between 3-5 to take entries on Saturday.

Hunter Pace 2 will have a Tailgate Party!  EHSC will provide Hot Dogs.  Please bring a dish to pass.

Due to the amount of rain and the conditions of the grounds, the Mini Trial scheduled for Sunday, July 21, 2013, has been changed to a Combined Test.  The entry fee is $35 and all divisions will remain the same except that a Novice Division has been added. 

You may ride in up to two divisions per horse and two horses per rider.

Extra jumping rounds will be available at the Combined Test for $10 per round.  Your first round at your Division height will count towards your Combined Test score.  You may do a schooling round at any height, lower as warm up or higher for the experience.  You can pay the day of the show and we will let the Stadium know.   Any questions, please email Sue Strohmeyer at

The dressage test for the Novice Division will be USEA Eventing Novice Test B.

For those who have already sent your entry, you will be entered in the division you signed up for and will receive a refund less $35.  The Erie Hunt and Saddle Club regrets having to cancel the cross country, but we cannot jeopardize the horses, competitors or the grounds.  If you have questions, please contact Sue Strohmeyer at: or phone 814-450-6618.

Upcoming July 2013 Show Highlights

Posted by Andrew on July 1, 2013

July promises to be a busy month at EHSC. We have a full slate of show on the calendar with everything from hunters to a schooling mini trial, and from dressage to games! 

On July 6 & 7, Horse Sports in Erie and EHSC will be combining their efforts to offer a weekend of hunter shows with divisions from Walk-Trot to 3' Hunters -- here's your opportunity to get that "Big Hunter" show feeling at a local show all while supporting EHSC. The weekend will feature a $250 Horse Sports Hunter Derby on Saturday, and the Francis Gannon Memorial Medal,  a $150 Pleasure Stake, and a $100 Jackpot Egg & Spoon Class all on Sunday!!! 

July 14th's Fun Show is your opportunity to breakaway from your usual competitive discipline and express your inner "gamer" side.  This show offers all the traditional games classes plus numerous "fun" games that can be shown in either western or english tack. In addition, many of the games have a separate Walk-Trot division! This show is fast becoming a favorite with many of our members...after all, it is the Fun Show. 

Lastly, the weekend of July 20 & 21 will feature our Dressage Show II and Mini Trial. Here's another gas-saver weekend with Dressage Show II during the day on Saturday followed by cross-country schooling for the Mini Trial in the evening and the Mini Trial on Sunday!!! The dressage show offers USDF Intro Tests, USEF Training Level and First Level Tests, and both USEA and USEF Rider's Choice. While the Mini Trial offers divisions with jump heights from 1' - 1'6" to 2'0" - 2'7". Entries for both shows are currently open and are scheduled to close on July 13th.
