This year the Millbrook Hunt held their inaugural MH Team Chase instead of the Hunter Trials. The idea was to make a change and involve more riders who would prefer to ride in pairs or teams of three. The event held at Coole Park
Farm was run over a course about a mile and half long designed by Viviann Berlinghoff with 17 fences. A good time was had by all including those at the landowners lunch who could watch all the riders and the course.

The Millbrook Horse Trials were a great success this year thanks to the countless people who volunteered their time to help with the weekend. Beth Ledy, Louise Meryman and Olivia van Melle Kamp have been working for the better part of the past year to coordinate everything, an almost overwhelming task considering all the details involved in an event involving almost 500 horses.
