What is "chase me charlie"?

A jumping event in which the horses follow each other over a progressively higher fence. Any pair that knocks the fence down, refuses, runs out, or falls is eliminated. In the UK it is sometimes called "higher and higher."

A regional UK usage of "chase me charlie" that, as far as I know, is limited to the English Midlands, is a contest where the jump is made up of small barrels and instead of getting higher, it gets narrower and narrower.
