Hunter Chase action from beautiful Philorth estate

Buchan Riding Club held their Hunter Chase event on Sunday in the beautiful grounds of Philorth Estate near Fraserburgh.

The Hunter Chase is a cross country event going back to the days of open land hunting where the horses overcame the many obstacles in their chase after the quarry.

These days it is a race against the clock over various jumps including water and covering a wide distance.

Buchan Riding Club Hunter Chase is held to give novice riders and horses an opportunity to try the discipline in a very informal but competitive arena.

Fifty one rounds were completed at Philorth in a beautiful but challenging course. Riders travelled from through out the area to participate.

With no losers on the day that made everyone who took part a winner.
