The last race will be followed by The Spirit of Hackwood Hunt Scurry, consisting of one complete circuit of the point-to-point fences. If you have ever fancied a spin round a point-to-point course, this is your opportunity. The scurry will raise funds for the Hunt and Wiltshire Air Ambulance through rider sponsorship and the minimum sponsorship is £200. It is not a race. There will be a bottle of champagne for the person raising the most sponsorship. There will also be prizes for best turned out and the “judge’s choice” of best ride. Everyone taking part will receive a dvd of the scurry.
