Pony Express

All riders begin on the ground next to their horses. Each rider will navigate a path with natural obstacles to each station. The first rider is handed saddlebags, mounts horse, and proceeds to the first station along the designated mowed trail. At the first station, the first rider dismounts and hands the saddlebags to second rider within the designated circle.  The second rider then mounts horse and proceeds to the second station.  The same process follows at the 3rd and 4th stations. The final rider must dismount at the finish and hand the saddlebags to the judge for time to stop.

ALL RIDERS MUST STAY AT THE STATIONS UNTIL THE COURSE IS CLEARED AND SAFE, FAILURE TO DO SO MAY BE GROUNDS FOR DISQUALIFICATION. SAFETY FIRST.Sorta Naughty 23 r
