The Greatest Horse Jump WAS IT 39 FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 23 February 1894
The Greatest Horse Jump WAS IT 39 FEET. Chandler's big jump at Warwick in 1847 is still tho subject of occasional discussion. The distance, as we know, was variously measured. For a num ber of years it was thought to have been 39ft., but the editor of that sport ing paper in which the record wris lirsc puoiiBiiea arterwarus explained that this was a printer's erior, and that the distance was in reality 37ft. This in itself is big enough; so big, in fact, that thoro uro many horsemen in England lo-day who will swear it is exaggerated. The portion of the race in which tho jump occurred is re ported as follows m a description of the race in Bells Life of the issue of March 28, 1847: — ''This loft the lead with King of the Valley, but he re fused at tbo top of the hill, and soon after Regalia caught up with him. They raced together to tho brook with Chandler following them. Chandler's rider pulled back as tbey .approached it, expecting that Regalia would bring grief to somebody, and whe...
