The South West of Scotland Horse Driving Club has a full list of events throughout South West Scotland and North Cumbria and is open to everyone interested in carriage driving.
Dear Members and Friends
I am taking the opportunity today while it is raining to keep you informed about what’s happening in the season ahead.
As you know we recently held our annual domino afternoon and once again we had a very good attendance. There was lots of fun and banter in the 20 exiting rounds played. The eventual winner was Carole Hendry from Motherwell receiving the Low Briary Sam Trophy with John Reid a very close second.
Our event dates for 2024 are as follows:
May 4 th & 5th Bladnoch Park, Wigtown
May 18th & 19th Dalmakerran, Tynron, Thornhill
June 8 th & 9th Collin Dumfries. (exact location nearer the time)
July20th & 21st Low Kirkbride, Auldgirth, Dumfries
August 17th &18th Nether Stenries, Carrutherstown, Dumfries
September 7th & 8th Milnecroft, Lockerbie
As discussed at the AGM we planned to keep the same dressage tests as last year providing they stayed on British Carriage Driving’s list of tests. I am pleased to confirm that the tests remain the same as last year, NOVICE A for Juniors, beginners, Novice, and VSE; NOVICE B For Open and multiples. Anyone doing the field class will drive the test for their category. Insufficient entries in the above classes will be amalgamated.
