All our instructors have qualifications to teach riding and carriage driving.
Our facilities include an indoor and large outdoor arena, a clubhouse, disabled toilets and showers, on site camping accommodation. All of our horses and ponies are well-schooled and suit novice to advanced drivers.

2020 was a challenging year for us all but we managed to continue to teach individual lessons and socially distanced training days within the government guidelines. 

We are very much looking ahead to 2021 and hope to be able to offer our usual program of camps and training days for any one wishing to join us. It will also be a busy year with three world championships:Juniors, Para drivers and Pony Drivers and Sara and Phillipa are hoping to train and compete at them all. 

Back in 2019, we competed for our 9th time representing GB in Hungary. It was a family affair with Sara and Phillipa both being selected for the GB squad.

'JACK IN A BOX' for the discerning carriage driver.
