My Horses Competed In The Bedford Pace

The Bedford Riding Lanes Association (BRLA) is a publicly supported, non-profit organization, which maintains more than 100 miles of equestrian riding lanes, running through beautiful private properties, near my home in Bedford.  Twice a year, BRLA holds a competition fund-raiser called the Bedford Pace.  The Pace is divided into 4 categories - Hunt, Pleasure, Junior, and Western.  Prior to the event, an official rides each course to set the time.  The participants begin riding, not knowing what the set time is.  The rider or riders who finish closest to the set time win the event.  Betsy Perreten, my stable manager, loves riding in the pace and this past Memorial Day, she and her teammate, Monique Schulman, rode in the Pleasure Division.
