Thrusters are challenged to take on the Maisemore jumps for the Midlands Ambulance Charity and Ledbury Hunt at Gloucester Races and Country Fair
The Ledbury Hunt is hosting its second Challenge Ride on Sunday 25th March at their reinvigorated Point-to-Point meeting ‘Gloucester Races and Country Fair’ at Maisemore Park.
The aim of the new challenge ride, sponsored by Listers Lexus in Cheltenham, is to raise money for the Midland Air Ambulance and the Ledbury Hunt, along with giving riders (both young and old!) the opportunity to ride a circuit and a half over the jumps at the infamous Maisemore Park racecourse.
The Listers Lexus Challenge Ride will be run at an optimum time – a good Ledbury hunting pace set by the Ledbury Joint Masters – and will feature 9 jumps over 1.3 miles.
To qualify for the challenge, riders must not hold a current jockey’s licence; horses must not have raced under any rules after 31st December 2014. There is no minimum weight.
Entry fee deposit is minimum £150 per person, this will be split equally between the Midland Air Ambulance and Ledbury Hunt. Full entry conditions are available from Julie Mansell email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.gloucesterraces.co.uk
