H. LIABILITY AND INSURANCE
The Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray Hunt does not hold itself responsible
for any accident which may occur to any persons, their horses or property in
connection with or arising out of the activities of the Hunt. It is a requirement that each person who takes part in any Hunt activity shall indemnify the Hunt company against any legal action that may arise from any such incident and have appropriate third party insurance cover.

Membership of the Countryside Alliance provides such cover. All subscribers and visitors MUST be members of the CA. Membership numbers must be given on your subscription form.


I. HORSE BOXES AND TRAILERS
Horse boxes and trailers must not obstruct the highway. The Police have warned that they will tow away any boxes or trailers causing such an obstruction. No parking of boxes or trailers is allowed on Hampers Green, Petworth or the National
Trust Car Park in Petworth Park and please do not cause any inconvenience on village greens, forestry or in gateways.

Secure parking is available at most meets. Each horsebox or trailer will be charged
£5 to help with security costs. The Security Officer in charge will collect this on the day. This will apply on weekdays too.

J. QUAD BIKES
Quad bikes will only be allowed to follow by permission of the Masters. Where permission is granted, they may only carry the number of persons they are designed for and all riders MUST wear suitable protective headgear.

K. RECIPROCAL ARRANGEMENTS
Full adult subscribers may hunt with our neighbours the Surrey Union, the Crawley and Horsham, the Hursley Hambledon and the Old Surrey, Burstow and West Kent for half their day cap. Please phone the relevant secretaries for further details in good time before your visit.

L. COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE
Membership of the Countryside Alliance is compulsory if you wish to ride mounted

M. CHILDREN
In the interests of safety, children aged 12 or under must be accompanied by a responsible mounted adult at all times. The adult, who may accompany a maximum of two children (12 and under), will be subject to the normal cap arrangements unless a subscriber or ticket holder. All children between the ages of 13 – 18 must have a responsible adult present, although not necessarily mounted. All children must wear or carry a label inscribed with their name, address and an emergency contact telephone number. In the field, children should always try to stay behind the Masters, especially approaching any jump, for their own safety.
