The Masters' Challenge

Back by popular demand - the Masters' gate jumping challenge will be taking place from 1.30pm on Sunday 16th September! We will again invite masters of foxhounds and field masters from around the country to come and prove to the expectant Sunday crowds that they're the ones to follow this season if you want an exciting ride...!

We are thrilled to annually attract some of the very best. Among those vying for the top prize have been Heythrop field masters Nick Seal and Mike Jackson, Warwickshire hunt chairman and field master Sam Butler, Berkeley joint-master Helen Hillard - one of the best ladies across country in Britain - and Joss Hanbury, legendary senior master of the Quorn, voted Horse & Hound's "ultimate thruster". There was even a side saddle entrant - the impossibly elegant and extremely brave Lucy Holland from the Bicester with Whaddon Chase.

They might not have the finesse of the eventers, but they are sure to be even more gung-ho. What's an upright gate compared to a socking great hedge with ditch in front, anyway?
