Fearless riding –and fun

If you’re looking for a great day out – with horses – then The Fernie Team Chase is the one for you.

There will also be terrier racing, children’s fun rides, stalls, a licenced bar and food. People can also bring a picnic along. Entry cost £10 per car, or £15 for a course view space.

Sponsors are Welland Valley Feeds the Retraining of Racehorses Society, Fisher German and Rockingham Horse Trials.
