CANCELLED Comphurst Hunter Trials 13th October 2019

Very sadly the organisers of the Comphurst Hunter Trials have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming event, scheduled to take place on Sunday 13th October. This is due solely to wet conditions in the area allocated for vehicle parking on the day. Whilst the ground on the courses themselves remains perfect, the only field available for parking for the event is already on the soft side. The weather forecast is uncertain and with more rain likely it is looking increasingly difficult to move vehicles on and off the site safely, and without causing long term damage to the parking field. Entry fees will be refunded as per the published conditions. Comphurst cross country course remains open for schooling and the going on all courses is excellent.

Nigel Hacking MFH wins Gatejumpers Challenge 2018 jumping 160cm!


Congratulations to Nigel Hacking for winning this year’s Gatejumpers Challenge on borrowed mount Jelabie, owned by Lauren Sapsted. He was the clear winner and in the end jumped a whopping 160cm! Nigel also took the honours for the Over 50 Veteran prize, closely following by John Stephenson in second on his hunting steed, Casper. The Junior prize was won by Taw Ainslie on his pony Solly.

The inaugural Horse & Hound competition was full of high drama, with horses and dogs running everywhere, and was eventually clenched by Stuart Robinson MFH, horse Glen and dog Alfie.

Congratulations to those that left the day with a rosette and thank you to everyone that took part and came to enjoy the day.


Scurry is abandoned but Gatejumpers Challenge goes ahead at Ringles Farm on 14th April

Unfortunately due to the exceedingly wet weather we have taken the difficult decision to abandon this year’s Scurry at The Glebe. However,
we appreciate it has been difficult to get the horses out to fun and entertaining competitions recently, so we will continue to run the Gatejumpers Challenge, along with a ‘Horse and Hound’ competition (for all ages), followed by a Grand National party, all at Ringles Green Farm, Sandhurst next Saturday 14th April instead.
