Hunt Day, on Thursday, 14 May, will include an inter-hunt relay competition in the main Castle Arena, show hunter classes and a parade of hounds.
“We hope that by adding the inter-hunt challenge, we can encourage more hunting people to attend on the Thursday, and make it a social event, too.”
Sixteen hunts will contest the £1,000-to-the-winner inter-hunt relay, over fences created by top show jumping course-designer Bob Ellis.
Hunter showing will take place all day, with classes for lightweight, middleweight and heavy hunters in the Copper and Castle arenas.
