Course Information

Course Designers for Belton 2019 are Stuart Buntine (Cross Country) and Beau Woods (Show Jumping)


Show Jumping warm-up policy – The stewards will stick to the timetabled slots as much as possible but please ALWAYS check with them before warming up (and preferably before coming down to the ring). They will always endeavour to get ahead of schedule if at all possible. Where there are gaps (withdrawals or just plain gaps in the timings) then it may be possible for riders to slot in a certain extent, but not out of section. This system has been implemented to ensure sections run according to times.

The hunt relay competition rules are broadly as follows:

  • All horses, runners and riders to have hunted regularly during 2018/19 season
  • Full hunting attire to be worn
  • The winning team will be the team completing in shortest time
  • 20 seconds will be added to the completed time for each knock down
  • Jumps will be approximately 1m

Teams will be required to proceed through start flags (time will be taken as the first horse crosses the line).

The first team member can proceed around the course, once the course has been completed the first team member will then hand his whip to the second team member, who will complete the course, and hand the whip to the third member.

Once the third member completes the course the time will be taken when the last horse crosses the line.

The course will include some or all of the following: solid and knock down rails, hedges, footbridge.

The chase fence must be jumped the correct way. All other jumps can be jumped either way.

Judge’s decision is final. No protest will be heard until a non-refundable cash sum of £500 is lodged with the Event Director (if you can catch him!!)
