Hunt Button

A great deal of work goes into running the Staff College Drag Hunt; not just preparing for hunting days, but also to run the organisation throughout the whole year. For this, we rely upon a number of people volunteering their valuable time.

Lots of people offer assistance for various hunt activities for which we are very grateful, but among those there are people who consistently go above and beyond to support the drag hunt time after time. They can be relied upon to maintain their active support through thick and thin; when there is no glory to be gained, no crowd to please, when an event is still weeks away, when everybody else is yet to turn up...or has already gone home!

The Masters award the Hunt Button in formal recognition of such loyalty and selfless commitment by those who contribute to the huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes.
 
Additionally, when choosing who to award the Hunt Button to, the Masters consider those who conduct themselves in an exemplary manner on a drag hunting day. Those who have earned their Hunt Button will always be correctly attired and well turned out. They will be someone who the Masters can call upon to assist following an incident or when a 'safe pair of hands' is required. They will always know how to behave, will be supportive of other riders, and will set a strong example to others in the field: they are someone who others can look to and aspire to emulate. They are representatives of our drag hunt, whether hunting at home with us or visiting other packs.

Those who have been awarded their Hunt Button wear a green collar on their hunt coat, whilst their buttons are adorned with the insignia of Staff College Drag Hunt. Gentlemen who have been awarded their Hunt Button wear mahogany topped boots and ladies patent tops if they wish. So if you are new to drag hunting then you should be able to easily spot these people in case you have any questions or require any assistance!
