A Steeplechase is a distance horse race in which competitors are required to jump diverse fence and ditch obstacles. Steeplechasing is primarily conducted in Ireland (where it originated), the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Australia and France. The name is derived from early races in which orientation of the course was by reference to a church steeple, jumping fences and ditches and generally traversing the many intervening obstacles in the countryside.
The steeplechase originated in Ireland in the 18th century as an analogue to cross-country thoroughbred horse races which went from church steeple to church steeple, hence "steeplechase". The first steeplechase is said to have been the result of a wager in 1752 between Cornelius O'Callaghan and Edmund Blake, racing four miles (6.4 km) cross-country from Buttevant Church to St. Leger Church in Doneraile, in Cork, Ireland. An account of the race was believed to have been in the library of the O'Briens of Dromoland Castle, Ireland.

WHY STEEPLECHASE IS RELEVANT TO YOUR BUSINESS CHALLENGES
The variety of obstacles and the length of the course in a Steeplechase is used to make the horse demonstrate agility, power, stamina, intelligence, and bravery. Communication between horse and jockey is paramount.
Every business that faces challenges and transitions requires the team to demonstrate the same degree of agility, power, intelligence and bravery to navigate the obstacles it will encounter.
