This weekend the highly addictive sport of team chasing steps up a gear as teams start to compete for qualifying places at the Skinners Pet Foods National Championship.
This ‘extreme sport’ which is also a great spectator sport, sees teams of three or four riders gallop and jump their way across natural country, with the fastest team to get three riders home the winners.
After two warm up events, the serious action begins at the Atherstone Team Chase near Coventry on Sunday 18 September, where the two highest placed teams in the open class will gain their place on the start line at the Skinners Pet Foods National Team Chasing Championship to be held in Oxfordshire next April.
Qualifiers continue until the Essex and Suffolk in November and start again in March at the opposite end of the country, at the Taunton Vale.
