Hunter Chase action from beautiful Philorth estate

Have your say

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.
