Inter Hunt Relay

The Inter hunt relay returns this year, always drawing a big crowd to the County Show main arena.

Riders showing excellent horsemanship at speed on Horse and on Bike!!

The two teams of riders compete in relay over a course of rustic jumps, each rider must put in a quick stop mid course to open go through and close a gate on horse without shooting past it at the galop!

The teams work against the clock with shear determination and a great show of skill. One Quad Bike is also part of each team making up the forth Rider!

Even if you know nothing about horses or riding this fun and frantic action will keep you entertained and show real competitive spirit. You can even choose a Hunt team to follow!
