Hunter Trials


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.


On Sunday 13th October 2019, starting at 09.00am

To be held at Comphurst Farm, Windmill Hill, Hailsham, Sussex, BN27 4RZ by kind permission of Mr and Mrs W Reid
