Join us on Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 noon for the official Elite Equestrian Shetland Steeplechase Stakes!
Race to win the first RealHorse Shetland pony, in advance of the formal release of this newest breed of RealHorse.
The Steeplechase will be conducted in 3 qualifying heats, with the winner of each heat advancing to the final stakes race. The winner of the Steeplechase Stakes will receive the first copy of the new RealHorse Shetland pony ($3700L value), a trophy, a rose drape, and a ribbon. Second and Third places will receive a rose drape, a ribbon, and a $500L gift card. All racers will receive a general participation ribbon. The Silver Sands region will be locked during heats, so please be punctual to ensure your place to race!
The Steeplechase will take place at the Elite Raceway located on Level Five of Elite Equestrian’s Silver Sands region. Only RealHorse horses (NPC or avatars) may be used to compete. PasturePet Horses are available for use by those who do not have a RealHorse. Practice over our steeplechase track is strongly recommended. Horses are available on the raceway level for this use. Each heat is limited to 10 competitors; available horses are first-come, first-serve. Horses must be in English tack. Jockey silks are required for riders (available free to group members.)
