'Welcome, welcome! This is quite an odd event, don't you think? To race around on these great tall beasts -- I am nor sure I like it at all! But folk come from near and far to take a chance on this game and try to win a steed.

'The rules are very simple -- race through each gate, and you mustn't fall off your steed before the time runs out. When you see two gates next to another, you must choose which path to take, be it high or low. The low may be muddy, and the high is sure to be dry, but is precarious indeed. There will be other hurdles to disrupt you as well.

'Do you feel up for this challenge? Only the most spirited riders should even attempt such a feat! It is sure to be very dangerous. I myself would never attempt such a thing!'


The Yule Run is a fairly new tradition in the Delving Fields of the Shire. Many challenges have been laid down to present a tricky course for the brave riders of Middle-earth who wish to demonstrate their mettle on horseback.


Objective 1

  • Mount a race-horse
  • Mount a race-pony

  • The festival steeds can be found spoiling for the race in the stable at the Delving Fields Festival race-track.

    You should mount a steed to begin the race -- a pony if your shorter in stature, or a horse if you are of a taller build.
