Team chasing

Team chasing is a British equestrian sport, contested between teams of four riders over a cross-country course of about two miles, with about 25 fences to be jumped. It is a dangerous sport, and a number of injuries have occurred. The teams set off at intervals and race against the clock, the time of the third member of each team being taken as the time of the team.

Team chasing was invented in 1974 as a spectator sport for television. It was revived in the 21st Century, and has recently come to public attention by featuring in the BBC Radio series, The Archers.
