Amendment to Regulation 34
Please also note that the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has agreed to an amendment to Regulation 34. Those horses which had registered hunter certificates by 1 Jan 2021 and then moved under rules, can return to pointing and run after 14 days (rather than 28 days as currently stipulated) providing the horse is moved within 14 days of resumption of point to points. This is for all horses that took out Hunter Certs by 1 Jan 2021 whether they ran in a point to point or not before the New Year. There will be no need to re-register, but checks will be done. This is a one-off for this very peculiar set of circumstances.
NB If you run a point to pointer in a hunters' chase, without sending the horse to a licensed trainer or permit holder, the horse can immediately return to point to pointing – see reg 34 (ii) and (iii). There seems to be a belief that once you go hunter chasing that’s it for the season - not true!
