ALL ACTION AT THE SKINNER’S PET FOODS NATIONAL TEAM CHASE CHAMPIONSHIP
Get ready for some exciting action at the Skinner’s Pet Foods National Team Chase Championship which takes place on Saturday 15th April at the Heythrop Team Chase, held in Little Compton, Oxfordshire.
Skinner’s Pet Foods, the manufacturer of premium quality dog food is to sponsor the British Team Chasing National Championship for the second year running.
Team Chasing is an exciting spectator sport where teams of three or four horses and riders gallop and jump over natural fences, with the team getting three or more members home in the fastest time judged the winner.
The Championship series comprises 11 qualifying events culminating in the final over the awe-inspiring Heythrop course.
Its rolling terrain provides a natural amphitheatre for superb viewing as teams take on huge hedges, timber, drops and water and the winners will be worthy Skinner’s Pet Foods National Champions. First prize is £1000 and a stunning perpetual trophy, with special cash prizes for the highest placed RoR (Retraining of Racehorses) registered horses.
Reigning champions Team Ride-Away were all on RoR registered horses – can they retain their title? Close rivals Wishful Thinkers and previous winners Relentless and Fox Grant Thrusters will be trying their hardest to take the prize from them!
There is also a packed supporting programme, with Stratstone novice, intermediate and pairs classes, plus gate jumping and a shopping village with a World Foods selection, making this a great day out for all the family.
Philip Cowen, Chairman of British Team Chasing, added, “The Skinner’s Pet Foods National Championship is set to be the most competitive in recent memory with the leading teams having battled for victory at every qualifier. The Championship class always goes to the wire so it’s an unmissable date for fans of this high octane sport.”
