Team Chase

Sunday 13th October 2019 ABANDONED

Following an Inspection of the MSSH Team Chase and Hunter Trial Course at midday today, Thursday, it has reluctantly been decided to ABANDON Sunday’s event.

Due to the wet conditions and the predicted poor forecast with heavy rain, the Committee is concerned for the safety of horses and riders as back-up and emergency vehicles cannot access all areas of the course. We have really enthusiastic landowners but we cannot abuse their support and generosity.

It is not practical to re-schedule at this stage although options in the Spring are being explored.

Entry Fees will be refunded less 20% towards essential costs and the entry handling charge.

The Meynell and South Staffs Hunt Team Chase and Hunter Trial is one of the highlights of the Hunt's and the Team Chasing calendar. Run for over 30 years over the wonderful old turf at the Booth Hay Farm complex, with its imposing fences and outstanding views. This is not only a great day out for sponsors, supporters and spectators but a day much enjoyed by competitors from all over the country.

There are classes at Novice, Intermediate, Open level, with the Open being a qualifier for the National. The Team

Chase is run on a Sunday, usually the last weekend in September or first weekend in October, depending on the national fixture list.Unfortunately there are strictly no dogs allowed on the site either walking the course or on the day.
