G : 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 and the Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray Hunt strongly recommends that all followers of the Hunt are members of the Alliance.
H : 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 will be arranged for most meets. Each horse box or trailer will be charged £5 to help with security costs. The Security Officer in charge will collect this on the day. He will also be in attendance on most weekdays.
I : 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.
J : 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.

Membership of the Countryside Alliance is compulsory if you wish to ride mounted with the Chiddingfold, Leconfield and Cowdray Hunt. If you are not a member please contact Charles Baker (01428 707272).
L : 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 and subscribers, especially approaching any jump, for their own safety.
Any unaccompanied children of 12 or under or any persons deemed by the Masters incapable of riding to a pack of hounds will not be permitted to continue hunting.
All dogs must be kept on leads while out hunting and during all hunt fixtures.
