British Team Chasing

The Governing Body of Team Chasing – "The National Committee"

The Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) is the governing body of Team Chasing and most events are organised by their Member hunts. The events are part of the social fabric of the organising hunts, and also play a significant part in each hunt's annual fundraising activities.

A subcommittee of the MFHA meets at least twice during each Team Chasing season to consider matters relating to:
  • Promotion of the sport at all levels, including national and regional sponsorship, website development and social media
  • Encouraging participation in the sport, both in the organisation of events and by encouraging riders to form teams to compete at Novice, Intermediate or Open level
  • Governance and Regulation of the sport, to maintain a high standard at all events, including course inspections
  • Health and Safety matters, insurance and risk management - in particular relating to course design at individual events
  • National competitions, including the National Championship and Open & Intermediate Leagues
The National Committee is made up of representatives from all aspects of the sport, including Hunt Masters, Event Organisers, Owners & Riders, Sponsors, Landowners and Event Administrators. The Committee currently comprises:

Mr P E Cowen MFH (Chairman of the Subcommittee) Mr G Goring  
Miss C. Alexander   Mrs D Hart  (MFHA Assistant)
Mr B. Allen   Mr R. Hopkins  
Mr T Berry MFH **   Mrs N Nevill **

LATEST RULE CHANGES & UPDATES...

Hat & Body Protector Rules Updated Posted: March 2018

British Team Chasing has updated its rules on hat and body protector standards for the forthcoming season, to fall in line with BE, the Pony Club and British Riding Clubs.

It is compulsory for all competitors and grooms to wear crash helmets to current recognised Safety Standards at all times when mounted at any Team Chase course. Such hats must not have a fixed peak.

Hats will be identified by a BTC, BE, BRC, or Pony Club approved Hat Tag. I.e. Hats must meet one of the following standards: 
British All PAS015 1998/2011 with kitemark; VG1 with kitemark; All ASTM F1163: 2004 onwards with SEI mark; SNELL E2001 or E2016 with Snell label and number, or Australian and New Zealand All AS/NZS 3838 2006-onwards hats. 

All competitors must also wear a British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA 2009) approved and appropriately labelled Level 3 (purple label) body protector, manufactured in the year 2009 or after. A body protector of this nature is also required when competitors are wearing air jackets of any make.
