Team chase organisers have managed to rescue the spring season despite the loss of the first four events to severe weather.

The Worcestershire, Taunton Vale, Berks & Bucks and Cattistock have all been cancelled or postponed.

This would have left the Fernie this Sunday (31 March) as the only run before the national championships on 7 April.

But after heavy snow in Leicestershire (see picture) this, too, looked unlikely to go ahead.

However, team chase organisers have rescheduled their events to enable horses and riders to get out before the championships.

The new dates are as follows:

• Berks & Bucks, 1 April
• Fernie, 7 April
• Worcestershire, 14 April
• British national championship, Heythrop, 21 April
