Chula Home Hunt invites you to join us at Reunion Farms to solve a murder among the “Horsey Set” of central Mississippi.
Saturday, May 19, 2018
9-10 AM Check-in
10 AM start
Cost to participate is $40/rider postmarked before April 1st, $45.00 after. (Donations to the hounds are always appreciated.) There is no fee for parents or siblings who wish to attend as non-riders, but we appreciate a head count in order to accommodate everyone at the hunt breakfast*, which will be served from 12-1 p.m., followed by announcement of the winners.
*While the term “breakfast” is traditional in fox-hunting circles, our hunt breakfast is more of a pot-luck luncheon – we hope you can join us!
How it works:
Riders may participate in teams of 2-10. All riders must wear ASTM/SEI approved helmets and provide a signed release and a copy of the current (within one year) negative Coggins for their mount. Solving the murder requires the ability to trail ride safely on a suitable mount. (No galloping!) Some trails are heavily wooded. See forms below for registration.
Our mystery ride is essentially a horseback version of the game “Clue.” Teams will receive a tally sheet of the suspects, weapons, and possible murder locations as well as a map of the locations on the Reunion Trails where they will find a Foxhunter with clues.
Each team will begin with a few clue cards that they can immediately use to cross off a suspect, a location and a weapon. Your team must visit all the locations to solve the mystery; you may visit each location as often as you like. When two teams meet on the trail, they may decide if they wish to trade information about any of the clue cards they hold.
There will be a 2 hour time limit for solving the mystery. Should you find the solution before then, you are free to ride the trails or return to the barn point with the solution. Be sure to turn in your answers to the Chula Members there by 12:30.
Should no team solve the mystery, then the team with the most correct answers will be considered the winner. (A tiebreaker will be held in the event of event multiple teams with the same correct solution.)
