Point-to-point racing is an amateur version of National Hunt racing or the Steeplechase. It is a very popular sport in Ireland. The name point-to-point refers to the points of the church steeples that the horses used to follow during a race. Nowadays, the difference between point-to-point races and steeplechases is that point-to-point races are run cross country, while steeplechases tend to be run on tracks.
Races are usually 3 miles long with a minimum of 18 obstacles that are 4 feet 6 inches in height!
