Eventing Nation: Hunt Chase at the Dublin Horse Show

Visionaire gets the scoop on this wild-and-woolly race, in which teams of foxhunters make like their pants are on fire around a course of cross-country obstacles.

From Visionaire:

The Horse & Hound has a write-up of the Hunt Chase at the Dublin Horse Show. Eight Irish hunts competed in the Round-Robin style event, which incorporated natural obstacles in the main arena. Each team included 1 member of hunt staff, 1 lady rider, a rider over the age of 35 and a male rider over 175lbs. A hunting horn was used as a hand-off baton. It's kind of like Pony Club mounted games meets Indoor Eventing… but with foxhunters, you know it will be fun, wild, and crazy. Congratulations to the winning Killinick Harriers team (nearside on the video below) of John Roche, Benny Walsh, Kieran Walsh and Joe Codd.
