Horse Racing

Shire Festival Run

Join the horse race and earn a chance to get your very own festival horse.

There are two places to race to attain the Summer Festival horse/pony:

The Shire, just north of the Homesteads
The Bree Festival Grounds, north of Bree near the horse fields


Each race occurs every 10 minutes. 5 minutes before each race starts, the quest will appear above the race-master's head. The first 4 people to grab the quest and a saddle, will be able to race.


The Race: The course is laid out with various obstacles. Since there are lots of people around, it's advised you turn all your graphics to Very Low.


Turning the token in for your horse: Turn-ins occur in the Bree Horsefields.

To acquire the Lithe Horse/Pony you must trade:


Fishing

The Catch of the Day

Fishing seems to be the major event this summer festivals so make sure to pick up your fishing hobby and fishing poles. Your skill will not effect how well you do in these quests, so everyone have fun!

To get any of the "barter fish" you must first activate the quest, Stocking the Pond from Neddie Grubb in Bywater.
The first quest will require you to fish for 3 different barter fish from Thorin's Hall, Celondim, and Bree. Once finished you can turn in your quest to the hobbit in Bywater.

The next quest will allow you to fish for 20 minutes in Mudbottom Lake (right next to Neddie Grubb). You are allowed to fish there for 20 minutes.

Once you've turned in your fish to Neddie Grubb, you can return to Thorin's Hall, Celondim, and Bree-land to accept quests to fish there for 20 minutes each place. You can only catch the rare fish designated to each area!

  • Note: Once your fishing quests are completed you will only catch normal fish.



Festival Tokens

Festival Tokens are mainly acquired from fishing. However, you can also turn in your horse race token for 3 festival tokens.

  • Celondim by the docks - Gaellien Fisherman
