RoR Hunting Series
The RoR Meriel Tufnell Racing to Hunting Challenge will be held again in 2013.
The RoR Meriel Tufnell Racing to Hunting Challenge will run again for the 2012/2013 season.
The Challenge will take at Cheltenham Racecourse on Sunday 17th November 2013 before racing, followed by an awards presentation.
The course will include cross country fences already on the track as well as some additional obstacles. There will also be a style mark and a timed section, which will include a bridge, a gate to open and shut, dismounting and remounting (can use a mounting block) and taking a glass of port from a tray. The course will be inviting with all solid fences not exceeding 1.10m and with some bushes going to 1.30m (this height is measured to the brush top). Please see below for the course plan.
It is open to ex-racehorses, all horses must be registered with RoR and have raced in GB. Hunters must be hunted fairly and regularly (horses team chasing in 2013 are eligible). Horses currently point-to-pointing (2013/2014) are NOT eligible to take part in the Challenge.
