After its success last year the Quorn is again running a festive Christmas show jumping competition at Vale View Equestrian Centre in Old Dalby, Leicestershire.

As well as clear round jumping and competitions over 80cm and 100cm there will be a fun relay class with special prizes for the best visiting hunt team and the best festive fancy dress.

Each member of the winning visiting hunt team receives a free day hunting with the Quorn this season and a donation of £200 will be made to their hunt.

Teams of three will battle it out in costume, passing a whip as batton. The first competitor must open a gate while mounted and the last close it.

Hot and cold refreshments will be available all day.
