Alison Osborne - Scurry Driver of the Year 2019
Congratulations to our very own Alison Osborne who, having carried out a clean sweep of the qualifiers, won the Osborne Refrigerators Scurry Driving final at Horse Of the Year Show 2019. She finished a full two seconds clear of the field to become Scurry Driver of the Year 2019.

    Who Are The OSG?  
  Osborne Refrigerators Ltd are one of the leading sponsors in equestrian sport and active participants in several equine disciplines. Having been longterm sponsors of (and competitors in) double harness scurry driving, the Osborne Scurry Group was set up with a group of like minded competitors, as the UK's premier scurry driving organisation, with the aim of putting on the best and most entertaining scurry driving competitions.

(The OSG is not affiliated in any way to the SDA).
  What Is Scurry Driving?    
  First, lay out a series of coned "gates" including a slalom, a nice tight, three sided "box" and some good, fast corners. Take two ponies, harness them to a lightweight racing carriage, then insert a driver with a need for speed and a groom on the back with nerves of steel and the balance of a cat. Set them against a clock and watch them fly!  
    Where & When Can You Watch?  
    Competitions run from May to September, taking in shows up and down the country (click here for show dates). The finale takes place at the prestigious Horse Of The Year Show, which in 2011 featured on Sky Sports and, for the first time, in 3D! It's fast and furious so come along and cheer us on.  Osborne Scurry Group - for the best in scurry driving.  
  Is It A Bit Risky?    
  All equine sports have a degree of risk. Scurry driving has just enough to make it thrilling to watch.  
    Scurry Driving Enhances Any Show  
    Show Secretaries who would like to feature scurry driving in their shows should contact us at scurry@osborne-ref.co.uk and book a date. Hurry though, the calender fills up fast. The OSG is also available for European shows.
