The Cavalry Charge of the Grafton Hunt at Easton Neston on Boxing Day 2011
The Grafton Hunt will meet for their traditional Stirrup Cup at Easton Neston on Boxing Day.
The annual Boxing Day tradition will continue in 2012 following on from a successful meeting in 2011 where it was good to see the hunt turn out with hounds to thousands of spectators and hunt supporters proving the hunt’s popularity with the rural community despite a ban on fox hunting introduced by the Hunting Act in 2005.Speaking to AboutMyArea/NN12 Phillippa White hon. secretary of the Grafton Hunt said, "We are meeting at 11 am at Easton Neston House and we would encourage everyone to come up and see the hounds and support the Hunt."
The Boxing Day Meet of the Grafton is traditionally held on Boxing Day except when it falls on a Sunday.
Many supporters either go on to follow the hunt or up to Towcester Races who are holding one of their premier meets.
The traditional route into Easton Neston House to see the hounds is via Northampton Road in Towcester.
