Does anyone know if there is a fee to use the Hunter Trial Field in Southern Pines? Who would I get in touch with? I am looking to bring down Caroline McClung (Dowd) down to do some lessons and would love to use the field.
I've been wondering about the small one on Old Mail Road. When I lived there I used to ride in that field all the time. It was great. That's what we referred to the hunter trial field. You're talking about hunter trials not horse trials right?

Finzean and the OP are talking about the same field. I know it's free for public use, but I'd certainly inquire with WMF (as I'm pretty sure it's part of the Foundation, at least one of their plaques is out there) before planning a clinc there.
"Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense!"
Piaffe Queen - touch base with Landon Russell at the WMF. What you are referring to is in indeed the Hunter Trial Field, off of Old Mail Road. Longleaf Pine HT used to run through that field in the day. . .
