Ri-Dry has also kindly sponsored the Challenge and are giving the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places a waterproof hunting jacket.
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).
All horses must be registered with RoR and have raced in GB (using their racing name please). Hunters must be hunted fairly and regularly (horses team chasing in 2014 are eligible as long as they have been hunting as above). Horses currently point-to-pointing (2014) are NOT eligible to take part in the Challenge.
There will be a £20 entry fee for the Challenge and an additional £2.50 medical/veterinary cover.
