Steeplechasing, horse-racing over a course with such obstacles as fences, hedges, and water. It originated in England as a race from one church steeple to another. The world's most famous steeplechase is the Grand National, first run in 1839 and held annually near Liverpool, England. U.S. steeplechases are normally held at racing tracks or hunts.
